Knife Storage Buying Guide

Keeping kitchen knives in a safe place protects you and your product. Tossing knives in a drawer may be convenient, but you risk blade edges getting blunted and fingers getting cut. Convenient and safe storage is a must in any kitchen for easy food-prep access.

Types of Knife Storage

Types of Knife Storage

Wood blocks, magnetic strips, undercounter mounts, and in-the-drawer trays are all viable options for storing knives. How you plan to access your knives and how visible you want them in your kitchen are two main questions to answer before buying knife storage.

Wood Block

Stored either on the counter or tucked in a cabinet or drawer, a wood block is a traditional way to store knives. Wood protects knives from moisture and corrosion while still offering fast access. A hardwood knife block with slots for a variety of sizes can come in several types of wood, such as maple, beech, or bamboo.

Under the Counter

Mounting knives under a cabinet or counter is an efficient way to store knives and save counter space. Hardwood knife blocks are available for this style of mounting, and some even feature a sharpening steel as part of the storage package.

Individual Blade Protectors

If you prefer to store individual knives in drawers, there are knife guards available in rubberized, plastic, and polypropylene materials. This is a great solution if you run out of slots in another storage system yet still need to protect extra knives in your collection.

If you have kids that like to cook, or if you are accident prone yourself, this device is a must have in your kitchen. Save your f...ingertips, cut food faster, and end up with better looking slices when you use this knife guard to improve safety and efficiency each time you cut by hand. Nobody wants to give up the pleasure of chopping by hand with an incredibly sharp knife, but few want to give up a digit either. This simple device helps you grip food and slice it accurately, but it also provides a protective barrier so nicks and cuts are pretty much impossible. The back side is made from a rubbery material that's similar to silicone, and the front portion is made from a thick and durable plastic. It flexes to fit any user with a secure grip, and you can easily open or close it to accommodate any type of fruit or vegetable. Added bumps create a non-slip surface to prevent food from moving while you slice it, and the design allows for use with right or left-handed orientation. Don't let another slip send you to the emergency room for stitches, and don't shy away from using cutlery like a pro. Keep this handy guard in your knife drawer and slip it on each time you prepare food to give yourself fool-proof protection that will also make the job easier. read more

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When buying knife storage products, consider where you plan to keep the knives in your kitchen. Your counter or storage space will dictate what type of product works best in your home.

At the Ready

If you plan to store knives on the counter or in a drawer, a wood-block option is likely the best solution. If it will be visible in your kitchen, think about how the design and wood type will fit with the rest of your kitchen decor.

Off the Wall

Magnetic strips for knives are made of steel, so before you buy, think about how a steel strip will fit into your kitchen color scheme and wall space. If you have young children, be sure to mount this storage strip out of the reach of little hands.

Styles

Mix styles of knife-storage units to accommodate different knives. A wood block on the counter is nice for knives that are frequently used, while a tray in a drawer is good for those that may not be used very often, such as steak knifes. Individual blade protectors or covers are perfect for knives that won't fit in your wood block and instead get placed in a drawer.
