No stain blades
The Mercer Culinary Genesis 6-Piece Forged Kitchen Knife Block Set review found that the knives have no stain blades forged from single-piece German steel which is both fine and durable.
The knives used in this kitchen knife set with block are primed for full precision. This is a great feature to have, especially for those amateur cooks who love to prepare restaurant style dishes at home.
Comfortable, firm grip
Each of the knives has a black Santoprene nonslip handle. This type of handle, as we learned in our Mercer Culinary Genesis 6-Piece Forged Kitchen Knife Block Set review, ensures that you have a firm grip on the handle, allowing you to cut foods effortlessly.
Tempered glass block
Unlike many kitchen knife block set, this kitchen knife set comes with a tempered glass block, which protects you from injuries that can occur through accidental touching of the blades.
This feature can prove immensely useful if you’ve young kids in your home and if they use the kitchen independently. Otherwise too this feature can prove really handy, for even an adult cook can accidently run his or her fingers over a knife blade while reaching for it.

This kitchen knife set with block has only 5 knives in it. While there is almost nothing that you can’t do with these 5 knives, some cooks may prefer a bigger kitchen knife set in their home kitchen.
