Same here. 15,000 miles later and never has one moved. Ours are right behind the stove on the wall.

Also a good place to hang the BBQ style lighter used to fire up the stove/oven, its long metal tube sticks to the magnet nicely.

I'm liking the mag strip, although I'm also liking the knife case roll thing. Looking at the knives I intend to carry, Mac brand Japanese made chefs, small veg cleaver, a paring knife, and a bread knife, the mag strip should be fine.

Magnetic strip seems OK but I'd definitely lean towards a rolled, and tucked away, towel - but before you leave make sure you're knives have been touched up to be razor sharp - then include in one of your tool kits a mounted leather strop with a stick of gold sharpening compound. Following each use give your blade a touch up. Presuming a quality (high carbon) blade, if you do this regularly, you will never need to sharpen with anything else.

Jay, I use Japanese water stones about once every 6-8 months. In between I have a medium ceramic rod for touching up the edge. I use these on my home Shun Classic knives, and the less expensive Mac Japanese knives for the AS. This approach works really well. I originally bought the stones for sharpening wood chisels, when I thought I was going to make classical guitars. Never did that, but my knives are happy.

Mike

Can you tell me how you mounted the back plate for the magnetic IKEA knife holder on the wall next to the oven?

On my AS, there is a closet on the other side, and I have no idea what is in the wall.

Did you drill straight through into the closet or is there studs in the wall to attach?

Just wondering.

I use these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...w_d0_g79_i1_pd and drop the knives in a drawer. They don't take up much space and are effective and cheap.





Sometimes simple is best

You're right, and we just bought a black one last week:

http://www.containerstore.com/s/kitc...uctId=10034361

It fits perfectly in the little strip of countertop behind the glass stove top. I put it in the sink while towing. It looks great!

Looks cool, but $50 ?!!!! That seems obscene even by Container Store standards

If you are a serious chef, or just have alot of knives, here is a great alternative that can take some hard knocks. You can put it anywhere, not just in a drawer. I have one of them, really well made and spills roll right off. http://www.properaproncompany.com/sh...per-knife-roll

Chefs knife storage solutions?

Once you determine the height you need, you can make some wood blocks to replace the plastic cups.

I appreciate everyone being so willing to share all these great ideas. We can sort through them and find ideas we may never come up with on our own. I read this the other night and did it in our trailer. It worked perfectly! Thank you for sharing!!

The magnetic wall holder worked great in our old 25' AS and will go up soon in the new FC20, which has great counter space for food prep IMO. For highway travel the knives will stay up. Never had a problem before. For off-road travel they will come down and be rolled up in a kitchen tea towel temporarily. Those plastic sleeves look great too, thanks for the idea.

I like these. I keep knives in a drawer. Don't like counter clutter.

You know, the same could be said for buying an Airstream.

But like the Airstream, while the price gave me pause, it looks so good that I'm glad I bought it.
