A couple of decades ago, I had a few cheap, no bolster, japanese carbon steel knives. Dropping them in and pulling them out of a knife block caused the blades to separate from the handles, (at least it contributed to the problem). Murray Carter's suggested solution was to keep them, in a kitchen drawer, in their original boxes. That seems fine for now, but don't think the cardboard will be long lasting. The CT threads don't seem high on drawer trays and I've never tried a magnetic strip. What are the CT members using for knife storage?
