Knife blocks are a very popular way to store kitchen knives. If you buy a knife set, storage blocks are often included. You can also buy stand alone knife blocks in various sizes. Knife blocks provide safety and convenience, but they take up counter space and can be difficult to clean when necessary. It is important to make sure your knives are clean and dry before you store them in a block. Moisture, dirt and food particles can get stuck in the slots and cleaning the slots is not usually easy though a can of compressed air can help.
To sharpen your knives, contact your retailer where you purchased them from and they will give you the details of the manufacturer or distributor and they can be professionally sharpened. Do not attempt to sharpen your ceramic knives at home with a steel, manual or electric knife sharpener, this will damage the blade and invalidate any warranty on your ceramic knives.
While kitchens knives do not make a cook, they can certainly make things much easier. There are many good and even exceptional knives in this world. This happens to be one of the accoutrements of the cooking world where opinions are wide and varied. We have used many different brands in our kitchen until we stumbled across Global knives. After that, for us, the knife question was settled on the topic of luxury cutlery. I must warn you, they are not what you call classic in looks, at least not when you compare them to the classic heavy handled German knives that so many chiefs love.
