Enhance your kitchen knife storage with our Q Ash knife block, an innovative yet practical design that makes a visually striking addition to any kitchen worktop. The Q Knife Block incorporates 4 ABS sleeves for secure knife storage.

Design Story: Signature Knives (2005-2007)
Design Director, Paul deBretton Gordon was first tasked with this project when he joined Robert Welch. He reflects "The design process for the Signature knife range was rooted in questioning all aspects of functionality, durability, methods of manufacture and ease of use." He worked in collaboration with Rupert Welch to perfect the knives using the experience of professional chefs. The knife range was rigorously tested over three years. Signature knives are now much loved by both professional and amateur chefs alike.
