    Hi All,

    I'm looking for some ideas to store my knives. I tried the magnetic block idea but it's too short and isn't big enough for my other three knives. 

    Any ideas? I'm particular about my knives so edge retention is important. 

    Thanks,

    J.

    If you like the magnet, the get another magnet :D

    Also I keep a lot of my knives in my knife bag.  This one

    The added benefit is now you have a knife bag when you go places.

    Do what I did. Get another magnetic knife holder!

    Ha! I should have been more clear. I like the magnetic holders too but since these layout is linear, they take up a lot of space. The bag is a nice idea.

    I remember seeing a magnetic system that mounted under the upper cabinet. That seemed slick at the time but I just glanced over the info.

    If you do some searches for knife block/storage/holder  you will find some interesting options.   One in particular was a high-end block made I think by an Australian craftsman.   Imagine an oriental fan opened 1/3 and standing  up on one of the 2 outside edges.    It could hold a good number of knives in rather  narrow section of countertop.   $300+ dollars I think, but not too extravagant for your knives.
