    Have you seen my review I posted in regards to the magnetic strip I just purchased?
    Maybe of use or not but thought I would share:

    I did and they look great! I don't speak German however! Shipping might also make things pricey.

    All good suggestions. I was looking for one and eventually made one myself (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...way?highlight=), but found the following design interesting: http://www.knifecraft.co.nz/

    I have learned 2 things concerning the magnetic knife holders:
    1) The holder should have 2 rows of magnets (or strips) so that your knife do not start to rock when you put them on the holder.
    2) The holder should not be too close to the wall (I mean the distance between the blade and the wall), because you will have hard time to grab the handle comfortably OR not to accidentally hit the wall with the tip of your knife when picking it up - in particular with long blades. About 5cm works fine for me.

    I also like the design of Marko's mag. holder very interesting and would like to know how does it work and what are the dimensions. Maybe Marko could chime in


    EDIT: Also I find wider holders (the dimension along the blade) nicer to use. I have made mine 8cm wide.

    Sorry if I came across as pushy on that as it was not my intentions if I did.

    I am curious if one could not create their own strip by getting some nice veneer, some rare earth magnetic strips, and basically building, or having a local wood worker do it.

    You didn't seem pushy at all
