That's alright then. You only get SIX with this!
Knives should never be put in wooden blocks and anyone that sells them in them is avoided by me.

Opinion or for good reason?
These are good knives and this is good value but I will say they do quite slippery handles and not the biggest bolster.

If you have very large hands like mused they can feel less secure than you would like.

That said, it has not caused me to cut myself in 7 years of use.

They still look immaculate too, but probably wouldn’t if I put them in the dishwasher.
Wooden blocks are only bad for knives if they are badly designed.

In a normal knife block just put them in upside down.
Looks cool and doesn't blunt the blades.

As for this block, if you care to look, you'll see the blade edge faces out through the gap. So it can't blunt the knives.
In fact the images on their website illustrate that well. It looks like a good design, with a decent gap and nice rounded edges.

As for these knives, I don't have them, but they were on my list as they review very well.

Its a fact they blunt knives. This one isn't so bad as they are slid in backwards but my friend has one similar and put the knives in blade first as she thinks it looks better !

They don't if you put the knives in upside down.
And this block clearly doesn't ether.
If your friend wants to put in the knives blade first and blunt them then that's their prerogative, but this block clearly doesn't blunt knives if used as designed.

See my previous comment.

So no, not all blocks blunt knives. And it's easily avoided regardless.

As far as I've seen all western knife brands sell knives in blocks, despite that not being a good idea if the knives are put in blade down. So avoiding any brand that sells knives in blocks means you need to rule out nearly all western brands I'd say.

They sell them in blocks as it likely helps with sales. The market dictates this to an extent.

Bit of impractical, unpragmatic and pointlessly zealous stance of yours if you ask me.

Thanks for your opinion, I hope you dont mind if I take a impractical, unpragmatic and pointlessly zealous stance to your condescending opinions.
