The Carl Mertens Magnetic Knife Block is made of heat-treated ash wood. This hardwood, called "thermo-ash," is baked at 180 degrees and thus obtains its specific warm color tone. The process makes the wood resistant and robust to external mechanical stress. It does not require any oiling and is also easy-care. Strong magnets embedded in the insert strips and in the back of the wood hold your knives securely in place. This sleek and modern block is best suited for Carl Mertens knives, and will make a great edition to your kitchen.
Solingen, Germany is known for their high quality cutlery. In fact, Solingen is known as the steel capital of the world and the "city of blades", and is where all Carl Mertens knives are made. In order to mark a product with the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen. The product must also meet strict quality standards in order to be entitled to use the "Made in Solingen" mark. This means that a knife that was completely crafted and assembled in Solingen can not say "Made in Solingen" unless it meets these required quality standards.
