Voodoo Knife Block
Since its launch in 2005 the kitsch kitchen helper - Voodoo Knife Block has become a design classic. The voodoo man has found his way into kitchens,, hearts and museums all around the world. The plastic holder is a available in a selection of colours - red, black, chrome, green and purple with red being the most popular. Whichever colour you choose, the knife holder comes with a set of five top-quality chefs knives. The knives are every bit as high-quality as the ABS plastic holder.
The five knives will cover almost all of the kitchen jobs that you are likely to encounter - there are chef's, bread, carver, paring and utility knives. The chaf's and utility knives are undoubtedly the ones that you will use the most and indeed find yourself becoming very attached to. The longest of the knives is the bread knife (340mm), the shortest is the paring knife (200mm) with the chef's, carver and utility coming in at 330mm, 320mm and 240mm respectively. They all have good rigid blades except for the carver which flexes slightly to allow carving thin delicate slices around bone-in joints. All of the knives are constructed out of hi-grade steel with an alloy of molybdenum and vanadium which gives them an edge that will last and resists corrosion. The knives are dishwasher safe but we recommend hand washing htem to preserve sharp edges for as long as possible.

Please note the the "chrome" knife block is plastic with a hi-gloss metallic, plastic finish and is not actually moulded from chromium steel. The voodoo man is reclining at a slight angle to illustrate the power of the blades driven through his body (this is a minor design alteration from the earliest models.
