Nearly every knife block set that we carry here at kmhousehold.com includes five things: a chef's knife, a paring knife, a honing steel, kitchen shears, and a knife block. These five items are the backbone of almost every set because they're all kitchen essentials.
While many people prefer to use santoku knives instead of chef's knives, it is very unusual for a block set to include a santoku in place of a chef's knife. If you wish to use a santoku instead of a chef’s knife, you’ll probably need to start off with a 2-piece or 3-piece santoku set and buy a block separately. We also provide kitchen knife set.
