Store Your Knives With Knife Storage
If you love your knives, you probably already know the basics: Have them sharpened regularly. But where are you storing those essential kitchen tools? Finding the right home for your knives is more than just a question of kitchen organization. The right knife storage can help your knives stay sharper longer and help your kitchen look sharper, too. Here are some ideas of knife storage. If you have the space, a magnetic knife strip mounted on the wall above your counter is a great way to store your knives. And unlike some of the other storage methods, a magnetic strip enables you to see every inch of every knife, so you won’t have to go searching for the one you want.
If you have little kids at home, chances are they might want to play with the “shiny swords” on display on the wall. So knife magnets probably aren’t a go in some kitchens. For maximum flexibility, look for an in-drawer knife holder with slots that can fit a range of knife sizes. Some in-drawer knife storage units come with specifically-shaped slots or grooves for specific knives, but if you have your own diverse collection it can be frustrating to try to make your knives fit in these set slots.
