Harvested directly from the local Snake River, these stones are all quartz based variations of granite. Each rock is chosen by hand and then cut using an 18" diamond saw that Erin Hemmings, New West KnifeWorks' Head of Production, conceived and built specifically to create our unique Rock Blocks. In this process the saw uses gravity to lower a swing arm into the stone while the stone is rotated. Through much research, we have found no similar saw or process in existence - nor knife blocks that exhibit such power and beauty.
Materials: Snake River Granite, African Padauk, Wengue and Maple.
This Rock block is specifically designed to hold 8 New West KnifeWorks chefs knives. All knives are resting in fitted wooden slots.
Set includes: Paintbrush Canyon Rock Block, 9" Chef, Superbread, Teton Edge Santoku, Petty Utility, Deli, Chopper, Mini-Chopper, Paring color selections are available in the left side drop down menus.
