Now that I have all these knives, I have one knife block and two under-cabinet blocks; I was wondering if anyone makes the kind of wooden rack that bolts onto the wall with slots cut into the top (like the ones a member was trying to give away in SLC), or if there are particular magnetic racks that are secure but don't have a lot of exposed metal on which I will bang my knife blade? The glassed-in knife case is a little elaborate for my situation

I don't own one, but these seem popular:

Before I remodeled my kitchen, I had three of them, and can recommend them. No exposed metal to scratch a knife.

Mine works well and is convenient. It is the 12" version.

Another happy Mag Block owner here. The very convexed ones do tend to spin a bit though. Good hold.

My friend is working on designing a rack. I might have to help him get the magnets set up so as not to spin the knives.

Love that block. Would love to get one. What is the western knife on the left?

I wanna guess! I say it's a Dave handle.


*edit* No, too coke bottle shaped. Ok That was my guess.

Possibly, but i have never seen Dave do a bottle shape handle, and Dave usually uses spacers.

That is an Ichimanji TKC re-handled by me with ironwood.

Nice job. The wood looks fantastic. I don't think I've seen a western from you before??

Mine does the same thing unless I place the knives in the right spot. It seems the magnetic field is stongest in four spots. If I place the knives centered on those spots, they don't rotate. After a while, I got used to it and it is not a problem. Curious though.

Mr. Magnus...

That whole seeting you got there is awesome! Did you craft that yourself (with the mags you purchased) or did you have the cabinet made? If so, can you tell me where? Ive bren looking for a set up like that for a while... The lighting gives it a nice touch...

Thanks!
