Self-Sharpening Knife Blocks
Self-sharpening knife blocks are ideal for making the most of a triple benefit, as they offer safety, storage and sharpness. In other words, our self-sharpening knife blocks have it all, and you get this from every one of the products we have on offer in this category. You won’t find products in this form or with such a variety of uses everywhere, but here on the ZWILLING online store, we have a large selection of self-sharpening knife blocks which are practical in use and refined in appearance.
Self-sharpening knife blocks – three advantages in one
If you opt for a ZWILLING self-sharpening knife block, you and your knives will get three top-class advantages in one product: practical and proper knife storage, more safety when going about your daily kitchen tasks and, when it comes to keeping your knives sharp, our self-sharpening knife blocks are a cut above! Now we’ll look into each one of these advantages a little further.
The knife block – "the place to be" for knives
As a basic principle – whether self-sharpening or not – a knife block is always a good idea if you own good-quality knives. And if you want them to stay in good shape, that is to say sharp and with an edge that lasts, here at ZWILLING we always recommend storing them in a block. The wooden block has slots for inserting your knives, each designed to hold the blades of kitchen knives, bread knives, garnishing knives and the like. In a knife block, your knives are kept safe and always to hand.
Longer-lasting knives thanks to self-sharpening knife block
Having your knives close to hand helps you work quickly when going about your day-to-day kitchen tasks. It’s also good for your knives when they are stored in their own slot. Not all knives get such special treatment when it comes to storage: Many are thrown around in drawers every time they’re opened and closed, bumping into other knives, flatware or other kitchen gadgets. This causes knives to go blunt, which in turn reduces their lifespan. You can save your knives from such a fate by opting for one of our self-sharpening knife blocks.
Self-sharpening knife blocks – a knife block with added value
So far, so good: You can get all these advantages with one of our normal knife blocks. Self-sharpening knife blocks, however, go one step further and bring sharpness into play. Regular sharpening plays an essential role in caring for your knife and giving it a long life. Your knife should be regularly sharpened with a sharpening steel or stone to keep it cutting well and to keep the blade in shape.
Sharpening in a knife block – how it works
Why not let your knives reap the 3-in-1 benefit of a self-sharpening knife block? The knife slots themselves have a built-in sharpening function which sharpens your knives every time they are taken out or put back in. What’s the “secret” behind how it works?
If you opt for a self-sharpening knife block, you no longer have to sharpen your knives by hand. The “secret” behind this is two sharpening stones which are built into the slots. These built-in stones are made from ceramic, a material that’s even harder than the steel used for our blades and set at a perfect angle for achieving proper sharpening. This means that blades are reset with every use and keep their optimal sharpness at all times.
