With Christmas quickly approaching (last time I checked it was September, how is it already late November?!), I’m starting to think about Christmas presents. I’m pretty useless at gifts – I can never think of anything I want myself, and I’m not great at thinking of presents for other people either. If you’re as rubbish as I am, hopefully this giveaway will inspire you – this gorgeous Cuisinepro knife block worth £750 (!!) would make an incredible Christmas gift for a loved one (…it had better be someone you really, really love…) – or, just keep it for yourself to make your Christmas dinner that much easier to prepare!

‘The Egg’ knife block is exclusively available to buy from homewares retailer House. If you’re in the UK and you’d like to win this amazing prize, just keep reading for details of how to enter – but first, I’d better tell you a bit about the Egg!

This knife block really earns its £750 price tag. It’s beautifully presented in a velvet bag (just the sort of finishing touch that would make it a lovely gift!), and the stylish stainless steel ‘egg’ surrounding the block means it’s a real stunner. It’s definitely a statement piece – the sort of thing that can proudly sit on your kitchen worktop and be a real talking point!

(excuse the reflections, turns out it’s impossible to photograph this thing without giving you a full bodied view of me holding my camera… hello!)

The top of the knife block has a pop-up handle so you don’t need to get any fingerprints on the sleek Egg itself (my first concern with anything made from stainless steel!) – just lift it up to reveal the beautiful set of 6 knives inside, set in a chunky wooden block.

The knives themselves are lovely, hand crafted from Japanese steel. The Egg comes with a set of 6 knives – a paring knife, a utility knife, two Santoku knives, a chef knife and a bread knife. They’re extremely well made, with razor sharp blades and moulded handles (so no nooks and crannies to get mucky!). They fit beautifully in your hand, and have a reassuring weight about them – really nice to use. They even come with a lifetime guarantee!

You can read plenty more about the Egg knife block on the House website, and can buy your own block there – or if you’d like to save £750, enter below to win your own! UK only please.
