In Andrew's words, "I nicknamed this all-in-one 7-inch chef's knife blade the Shiwu (meaning "food" in Mandarin Chinese) as a reminder that if you can eat it, this blade can cut it! The German steel will stay sharper longer and can be honed easily. Its Chinese heritage speaks to thousands of years of cooking expertise, where one knife handled everything a chef could throw at a blade."

One of the best knife blocks I have ever owned. It is well designed for safe knife storage and access. The size of this knife block holds all of my knives, but does not use a large amount of counter space. Overall, a great product.
