Arete Steak Knife Block | Ironwood

Arete Steak Knife Block

An arete is a ridge of vertical edges that jut from a cliff face. The magnetic angles of the Arete Steak Knife Block are an homage to our Jackson Hole roots. Sustainably sourced American hardwoods are individually milled and hand-finished to smooth out all the contours. Then, high-power, neodymium magnets are artfully embedded to keep knives readily at hand in unique positions that create beautiful, shifting perspectives reminiscent of a mountain range.

Whether as an elegant accent or striking centerpiece, the Arete Steak Knife Block makes meals more memorable by adding a sense of ceremony to the feast. Lauded by Food & Wine Magazine and The Wall Street Journal, our knives are the preferred choice of elite steakhouses from the Montage to the Four Seasons. The Arete displays the high performing blades on a finely crafted piece of functional art.

Desert Ironwood Handles

We tested countless hardwoods and laminate woods for durability, water resistance, and overall look and feel, the richly textured desert ironwood stood out as a top natural solution. Desert ironwood grows in water-depleted environments, giving it an incredibly dense grain structure- so dense it sinks in water! The extra density leads to more strength and durability. 

USA steel: the cutting edge is American-made.

For the last several decades, innovation in high-tech sectors has led to the development of new super-steels. The ultimate steak knife requires elite edge holding and high stain resistance. 440C provides the best fusion of these elements, resulting in knives that stay sharp and beautiful on the table.
