Perfect for an upgrade

“I've been a Robert Welch enthusiast for a while now, having purchased a signature knife block set over a decade ago. Recently, however, coming to the conclusion that I had more RW knives than spaces in the knife block, I started to look for an alternative solution. The Book Oak Knife Block is perfect for my needs. Beautifully stylish (was it ever in doubt), very compact, and satisfactorily weighted so there are no concerns over accidental knocking over by the cat, it sits beautifully flat against my kitchen wall. Even better a second block now sits back to back taking no more room than the signature block but allowing twice as many knives in the same footprint.”

Beautiful Block!

“Your book oak knife block is the best of its kind I’ve ever seen. The simple but elegant design is what sets it apart more than anything, but it also functions perfectly for easy access to my six RW knives and sits against the kitchen tiles without taking up too much space. Every time I walk into our kitchen it gives me pleasure to look at my beautiful knife block. A friend who saw it yesterday immediately wanted one for herself! ”

Perfect gift

“I gave the Book Oak knife block to my son as a birthday gift. He was very pleased with it. It is of the highest quality and beautifully designed. He has a small kitchen, this block sits back against the wall so takes up very little space on the worktop, ready to take a collection of Robert Welch knives he is planning to put together.”

Excellent quality

Quality knife block

“I have a few Robert Welch knives and needed a good block to store and keep them safe. This is beautifully made and certainly does the job, without taking up too much work service space, great product,”
