This Shun Bamboo Knife Block has 22 knife slots, which includes slots for shears and a sharpening steel. Also includes a slot for a cleaver and 6 slots for steak knives. Here are some specific stats on the block:
Very solid,well laid out block. Easy access to all knives,although I do not use the cleaver slot. One drawback to some - its BIG!
Really nice block Holds all of my larger blades. Works great if you have several differant brands of knives with differant types of handles.It is big perfect for a blade head!

The Shun Knife Block beat out all others for one simple reason: none of my knives,nor the 12" ceramic rod,stick out the bottom. Imagine your surprise if you pick up the whole loaded knife block with your bare hands underneath,and razor-sharp knife-tips are sticking through. Not with THIS block! And it’s quite good quality too.

I have been looking for months for any website which would list the width of the slots on the cutting board. You’s be amazed to find that this info is not available in hundreds of websites. This company very carefully lists all of its slot sizes. My quest is over and I am ordering my knife block right now. I’ll right another review once I am up and carving.
