Chefs knife storage solutions?

How do you guys and gals store your good cooking knives? I was thinking maybe a small knife magnet attached to the cabinet wall adjacent to the stove? The thought of them banging around in a drawer is not a happy thought. Neither do I want to give over valuable counter space to a knife block.

Any other good solutions?

I'd be too nervous about a knife bouncing off and being damaged. In a drawer, wrapped up should do the trick. On "Top Chef" the chefs all store their knives in a knife carrier that's fabric and padded.

This one is interesting for safe storage in a drawer, if you have a drawer big enough for it: Totally Bamboo 20-2091 In-Drawer Bamboo Knife Block: Knife Holder: Kitchen & Dining

For a very cheap way to protect your knives, take a small piece of cardboard and fold it over your knife. Trim off the excess and seal it with some good tape. You can cut one end of it at an angle to match the tang of your knife if needed.

Knife storage

I keep them in sleeves while traveling and put them on a ikea magnetic bar under the cabinet when I arrive at my destination. Did leave one up by accident once and it was still there when we got home...

I found somewhere a plastic knife storage item, made for RV's. that attaches to the inside of a cabinet door.

Has slots to drop the knife thru, dividers, and a bottom ridge to keep anything from sliding thru.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Knife Storage

I've found that the Victorinox BladeSafe covers work well, especially since I keep/use a pair of Victorinox knives in the trailer. They're a decent quality knife for a reasonable price.

We use protective sleeves and store knives in a drawer. We have "Blade Savers," which have worked fine for several years. There are different sizes to accommodate the 4 knives we carry: a serrated bread slicer, 9" chef's knife, 6" utility, and a paring knife. We use cheap steak knives, so don't worry about them too much. Also carry a Diamond Chef electric sharpener to keep a good, sharp edge.

I like a knife roll/bag. Stores small and safe, and I have all my knives in one place when I'm coking by the fire.

I have always stored my knives on a wall-mounted magnetic strip and never have had one fall off. Love how it saves on drawer space!
