Two upscale KitchenAid knife block sets are making their retail debut on Amazon.com.
Unveiled earlier this year, the company is introducing a 7-piece knife set and an 11-piece knife set each constructed of German stainless steel. The sets come in blocks that are available in four colors, and have suggested retail prices of $799.99 for the 7-piece, and $1,199.99 for the 11-piece set.
The knives are said to undergo a precise ice-hardening treatment to strengthen corrosion resistance and flexibility. The 7-piece set includes shears, a diamond coated knife sharpener, 8-inch chef knife, 8-inch bread knife, a 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, a 3.5-inch paring knife and zinc die cast knife block. The 11-piece set includes the same items plus an 8-inch slicer knife, a 7-inch Santoku knife, a 6-inch utility knife, and a 3-inch paring peeler.
The knives are designed with black handles, and knife blocks are available in Candy Apple Red, Frosted Pearl White, Onyx Black and Sugar Pearl Silver. In addition to Amazon.com, the sets are also available on KitchenAid.com.
