    Question Knife Block (Storage)?

    Here's the situation, we have a large cutting board on the island in the kitchen. Would love to use a magnetic holder, but there's nothing to mount it on so was thinking about a knife block or knife rack. Can I get some recommendations for a good solution?

    • Traditional knife blocks seem to have wasted slots depending on knife sizes.
    • Magnetic blocks seem interesting but don't have many reviews. the boker on amazon is attractive
    • Knife racks - haven't seen many but worried about knife getting knocked off if bumped into.
    • DIY? - has anyone made their own. Would it be cost effective doesn't seem overly hard with the right tools

    Storing 4-8 knives up to 240mm
    Don't want to exceed $150 (pref under $100)

    F Dick magnetic knife block. I just bought one for $129 on Amazon, but it was the last one for sale from that seller, and unfortunately, the price just jumped up. I now own two of these. It does tend to tilt over if you pull a large knife off. You have to support the block with one hand when removing a large knife. And DEFINITELY if you're pulling off a cleaver. You would also have to worry about it getting bumped over and falling off your island unless you somehow find a way to secure it down.
