Progress 5 Piece Knife Block With Safety Lock

Monday, October 09, 2017

Knives are great tools to have in the kitchen but they're also dangerous things to have laying around, especially if you have little ones in the house!
To avoid getting paranoid about your children reaching for the knives and/or cutting themselves, it makes sense to get a knife block that is child proof.
Take for instance the 5 Piece Secure Bloc by Progress, which is a lockable smart knife block with a secure lock and release mechanism with color coordinated knife handle and lock. The block housing is made of glossy finish plastic, giving the block knife a neat modern look.
The 5-piece set of knives have soft-touch rubber handles and non-stick coated blades. The handles of the knives have an elevation that turns into a tool rest for the blade which means the blade is always raised when not in use, making it a more hygienic.
Simply insert the knife in its corresponding color coded slit and push back the locking tab with your finger to allow the handle to fall through and lock the knife in place.
The Secure Bloc can hold a total of five knives, which come in all sizes. The two largest knives, chef knife and bread knife, are both 7.5 inches in length with a 1.8 mm blade thickness. The chef knife weighs 210 grams, while the bread knife weighs 192 grams.

The other three knives have a 1.5 mm thick blade and include a 3.5-inch long paring knife (grey handle), a 5.5-inch long utility knife (purple handle) and a 6-inch santoku knife (green handle), which weighs 123 grams. The pairing knife and utility knife weigh 53 grams ans 65 grams respectively.

The block weighs 1.2 kg and measures 10.5 inches (26.5 cm) high. The total length is 11.5 inches (29.5 cm) wide and around 3 inches thick (7.5 cm).
The block has a circular shape around the edges, giving you a comfortable grip for picking up the block and transporting it.
The bottom of the Progress Knife Block has a matt rubberized surface which gives the block stability and prevents the block from sliding.
Progress products are available from Morrisons stores nationwide from Boxing Day.
