LockBlock knife set and knife block innovative design locks knives safely inside the block and requires an adult-sized hand to operate it, meaning that most children aged 5 and under will be unable to remove any knife. As each knife is placed inside a knife slot, its blade is held securely by the unique cam-lock mechanism. Pulling on a knife only increases the force of the grip so knives cannot be simply forced out of the block. These knives are forged from Japanese 420j2 stainless steel and have precision, taper-ground edges for effective use. Their ergonomic handles have a textured, nonslip grip and a large bolster to help protect fingers. They are also color-coded to match their corresponding knife slot. The LockBlock Knife Block Set comprises: 3.5" Paring knife, 5" Serrated knife, 7” Santorum knife, 8" Chef's knife, 8" Bread knife, 8" Carving knife. Care&Use: Knives: Hand wash and dry by hand. Knife block: Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
