I like Jim's idea because they are out of sight.

For your own safety, please do not leave your knives out in the open.

I made a custom oak knife block, sized to the four knives we carry. It is mounted on the side wall between the window over the sink and the spice cabinet.

I made the block on my table saw by cutting appropriately-sized slots in an oak block with a thin blade and then gluing up the assembly. I have used it in 2 different Airstreams, now, for nearly 20 years.

After trying blocks, wraps, sleeves, etc., I discovered a simple solution a few years ago: one of these flat knife holders (see picture) BUT instead of hanging it to a wall, I lay it flat at the bottom of a kitchen cabinet. I covered the top, up the handles, with a stiff piece of plastic - cut from one of these pliable cutting boards - in order to protect the knives but also to make it possible to store other items on top. When I open the door, I can just slide the knives in or out of their slots, without disturbing what is above. This solution allows me to save space but it is also solving a safety issue. I keep my knives very sharp and there is no way I can just leave them in one of the drawers, together with cutlery and other utensils. I bought the knife holder at Camping World. My Airstream is a new 27F International Serenity and the cabinet I use is located on top of the microwave drawer.
