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 Basalt, African Padauk and Maple.
This Rock block is specifically designed to hold 6 New West KnifeWorks steak knives. All knives are resting in fitted wooden slots.

About G-Fusion Steak Knives
Functional Art: "As beautiful as it is useful." NY Times Don't let the colors fool you, these stylish steak knives cut even better than they look. The unique blade has serration where it's needed to protect the edge from cutting on hard ceramic plates, with razor sharp straight edges to finish the cut. Our 2.0 steak knife features a super thin plunge ground blade and tapered tang for incredible cutting ability and balance.
