I am spending some time outside of the US right now and need help finding a knife block that I can buy on Amazon, ChefKnivesToGo, CutleryAndMore, CutleryAndBeyond, or similar sites - and then have it brought to me by a friend. The problem I am having is that I need to find the right knife block online, I cannot just go to a cutlery or knife store and choose it there or ask a consultant for advice. Initially I thought finding a knife block would be an easy matter, but local stores have nothing that can accommodate knives longer than 8", and I have a hard time browsing through Amazon's and other site's catalogues.
I have the following set of knives (all Wusthof, in case that matters for their sizes):
- one 10" chef's knife,
- two 8" chef's knives,
- one 7" santoku,
- one 4.5" utility and one 3.5" utility,
I might buy some more small knives (like a 6" utility or another 4.5" utility, or a filleting knife), but I think I won't be buying any large knives in the immediate future. I think the limiting factor here is that I have four (comparatively) long and wide knives. And as I don't need one of those huge blocks that have 6 or 8 slots for steak knives in addition to their other 10 to 15 slots, I am having a hard time finding a knife block that can accommodate my knives.
I would immensely appreciate any and all advice (preferably with links, if possible, to relevant sellers' websites).
Thank you so much in advance!
