How do you store knives?
« on: August 17, 2021, 09:44:24 AM »
I am referring to chefís knives,  cleavers, etc. 

I donít like the knife blocks because you canít get them clean. I donít like throwing them in a drawer, where the blade gets trashed. My wife doesnít like the magnetic strip that I put on my wall at my old townhouse. So, I am curious how folks store knives in a sanitary way that preserves the blade.
I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

In a drawer with a divider for them.
EDIT: My primary knives are in a knife block on the counter.

Knife block with the blade up rather than down. Supposedly keeps the blade sharper longer since it doesnít rub on the block each time when you take it out and replace it.

-edit for picture

Some store in a crock filled with rice or beans!

This swing-out,under-cabinet block is what I use. I attached magnets on the bottom to hold my cleaver and favorite knives. A paper-clamp holds recipes. This setup takes no counter or drawer space; my knives are instantly accessible.
