Edge of Belgravia is an innovative brand of edgy and contemporary chef knives. I've been looking for the perfect knife block since we had a new kitchen fitted last year so I was delighted to hear from Edge of Belgravia about the Black Diamond Knife Block with it's sleek, modern design.
The Edge of Belgravia Black Diamond Knife Block, designed by Christian Bird, is inspired by the angles of a rough-cut diamond combined with the style and beauty of contemporary art. Tightly packed it can hold up to 11 knives, with a maximum of 4mm blade thickness, but looks just as good with fewer. The result is certainly a very striking piece and one that is not only functional but looks like a piece of art in the kitchen.
Of course, I absolutely adore the way it looks but I had to test out how user friendly the Black Diamond Knife Block is as well. Even though it has a quite open design, the knife block still feels very sturdy and solid. The well thought out design and weighting means that it doesn't topple when removing the knives and there are simple grips on the bottom to ensure it stays in place.
The Edge of Belgravia Precision Chef Knife Set, features a collection of four different knives - a bread knife, a chef's knife, a Deba knife (inspired by traditional Japanese salmon knives) and a pairing knife. The sculpted black handles and design look so stylish and match the Black Diamond Knife Block beautifully. I've been loyal to one particular brand of knife for many years now but without a doubt the Edge of Belgravia knives are the best I've ever used - super sharp precision cuts, easy to use and with a comfortable grip.
Overall, I highly recommend the new Edge of Belgravia Black Diamond Knife Block and also the Precision Chef Knife Set. It looks modern, stylish and simply stunning. I've had so many compliments about it since it's been in my kitchen - it's such a striking focal point and is definitely a piece to invest in.
The Black Diamond Knife Block has an RRP of £99 (but is currently £89 on their website) and the Precision Chef Knife Complete Set is £69. Take a look at their website for more information: www.edgeofbelgravia.co.uk/collections/black-diamond
