Knife Block Sets and Storage

Smiths of Loughton offer a wide range of kitchen knife block set online or from our high road shop based in Essex. Knives are a kitchen essential – you'll need them for just about every meal you prepare. Investing in a set of knives means you will cover all the basics and a matching knife set can look smart, too. It can also be more cost-effective than buying them individually. Most knife sets have one or two smaller knives for jobs like cutting vegetables, along with a carving knife and chef’s knife. If you haven’t bought knives for a while, you might be surprised to find a santoku knife in some sets. These versatile Japanese-style knives have indents on the blade and are designed for chopping and dicing. You can also use the flat surface to scoop up finely chopped ingredients like herbs and garlic. The quality of the knives is key as well. A full tang knife is one where the blade is a single piece of metal running the whole length (as opposed to the handle being attached to the blade) and is generally thought to be stronger. However, these are usually more expensive. Smiths of Loughton offer free UK delivery on orders over £50.00
