Novelty Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block

One for the Star Wars fans, this – an X-Wing Knife Block – created by bluw to celebrate the release of the seventh film later this year.

The officially licensed set contains an X-Wing shaped knife block with five stainless steel knives – a bread knife, a carving knife, a utility knife, a paring knife and a cook’s knife. Each knife has a protection sheath that it slots into.

The block is frustratingly flimsy – you have to hold it with one hand to pull a knife from it with the other and the knives are very lightweight too; it’ll be interesting to see how long they last. This is much more of a novelty gift than a serious kitchen set, I’d say. However, I can’t help but smile at the idea, regardless. Prices vary considerably from £48.99 to £79.99 so it’s worth shopping around, if you want to buy one.

    I spotted one of these the other day and snapped it up for a Christmas present (Christmas shopping in March? When you spot the perfect present, it has to be done!) but I was amazed at the wide range of prices. I don’t suppose the knives will be great, but it’s a fun present for a Star wars fan

    Yes, for the price, I’d have liked a much sturdier base, at the very least.

    Yes, very random, and fun to have it on the blog, as I’m a big sci-fi books / TV / film.

    Shame it doesn’t seem to be brilliant quality and odd that prices vary so much but I still think my OH would probably like this as it might encourage him to do more cooking!

    It’s very cool, but yes for the price, it’s a shame it’s not less flimsy — it’s not so cheap that they couldn’t have made it more robust. It’s fun, for sure, but not hugely practical.

    Me too and yes, a lost opportunity. I guess they’re operating on the assumption that it will mostly be bought as a gift and rarely for oneself, in which case it’s the idea more than the quality that wins the sales…

    Alright now this is legitimately one of the coolest items I have ever seen. My wife happens to be a big Star Wars fan too, so I think I could actually convince her to get this! As you said, this clearly looks like more of a novelty gift, than something that would actually be used. That’s perfect for us though, because we want to decorate our kitchen too.
