Not the real wood
December 18, 2013
Based on others' reviews, I thought I'd get cherry wood when ordering. Wrong. The block is made of some tan wood and stained kind of cherry, but not as red as real cherry wood. The stain does not even penetrate the knife slots, which show tan. I did not receive a product anything like the photo.

Quality Item
July 14, 2012
This is a great item to have in your kitchen. It will store and protect your knives very well. Plus it will go good with wooden cabinets. It fits all kinds of knives instead of the cleaver. The only thing that is different is the color.It is darker than the picture they put up. Overall it is a great knife block.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Versatile
Cons: Difficult to Clean

MADE IN CHINA
January 19, 2012
This website states this block is made in Germany. It is not. It's made in China. The outer box even says "Made in Germany", but a sticker on the block itself says "Made in China". The block has been steeped in stain, so it looks like dark walnut. The smell is very strong. I can't imagine putting knives in this, since the inside slots have a coating of stain. Really unhappy with this purchase. Returned it and the salesclerk was shocked by the odor as well.
Cons: Quality
