All the pieces fit into a solid wooden block that protects the blades and keeps everyone safe. The black handles are securely attached using three rivets and ensure a firm grip and comfortable handling. The block measures 11 inches by 4-1/2 inches by 14 inches and has a stylish look that will enhance the interior of any kitchen.
