New Knife Line Makes the Cut        

We are proud to announce the newest addition to The Chopping Block's family of knives: Robert Welch. The new knife line will be unveiled during our Annual Knife Sale in April where all knives will be 20% off, including Shun, Global, Chroma, and Fr. Dick.

Knife Work Stop by our stores next month to learn about the advantages, designs and workability of each knife line. We'll have plenty of veggies on hand, so you'll be able to test drive the different knives yourself! 


Remember, you don't need a 12 piece standard set to be successful in the kitchen. A good chef's knife, paring knife and bread knife are the basis of any collection and will support you through even the most complex recipes.    


If you really want to put your knife skills to the test, join us for our upcoming Knife Trunk Show:

Why Robert Welch?

Robert Welch Knife As our long-time customers know, adding a knife line to The Chopping Block's inventory is a big deal. We don't do it often, and we only do so after extensive testing by our chefs.
