In the middle of the center under the use for the multipurpose scissors is the typical twin logo.
Another plus is the weight of 2.6 kilograms. The knife-block test showed that the block of twins has a secure and firm grip even on smooth surfaces. The rubberized feet also attach to the underside of the knife block. By the way, these are kept in black and are thus natheless in the noble overall picture (see picture).
The inserts for the knives are aligned horizontally and are gentler on the blades than vertical alignment. In addition, widen the openings at the bottom of the knife block to allow dust and debris to just fall down. The bamboo wood used in the light rod look looks very natural. It is known to be extremely durable and long-lasting. In addition, it has an antibacterial effect, so it also has very good hygienic properties.
