I hate knife blocks. I really hate them. I understand that they are functional. But, there’s just no beauty. And they take up real estate on counters. Sometimes precious real estate. So, here are some other options to store knives:
- The drawer. If you have the drawer space, get a utensil divider/holder and store those knives in the drawer. I would recommend covers for your knives for this method. Or this. We don't want anyone to loose fingers when they reach for a knife.
- The metal strip. I LOVE mine. They are much prettier than the classic block. They are a magnetic strip that hangs on the wall, then the knives stay up via magnet.
