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.
