    Saya, block or drawer?

    So how do you guys store your knife?

    Is it easier to grab the one in the block, or do you store them in a drawer? I have my habits and know who I grab for usually

    I buy sayas for pretty much all my knives. I have to take them to work so they're pretty practical and they look nice too.

    I find I ignore my knives if they don't go on my magnetic knife rack. The biggest blade that fits is normally a 210mm, because of cupboard clearance. I hadn't thought of this before, but maybe that's why I prefer 210s over 240s.

    I have a combination of all 3, looking to pick up a magnetic rack any suggestions? Then I can do away with the block or get some knives out of the drawer creating more space

    I have 2 magnetic racks, but we really did not provide good locations for them during the kitchen renovation. I'll likely be looking into a custom block from BoardSmith soon.

    We do have a couple good drawers where I could store them, but I'm have not seen enough info on the slotted drawer inserts to determine if that is a good way to go. I saw some on the web site that belongs to a company of which we do not speaketh here on KKF, but they did not really seem tailered to 300 mm sujis

    I made my own out of a solid piece of rosewood and some rare earth magnets.
    It took some experimenting with the magnets and a second order of them to get it right.
    I do have a couple heavy knives on there and I have had no problems.
    I've been extremely happy with it.http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/...c/IMG_3046.jpg

    The only knives I have visible are the cleavers (2). I get a little creeped out about seeing a bunch of knives hanging on the wall or what ever. The rest are in drawers. (at work)

    The few at home in a block. (They're rarely used)

    I got a Benchcrafted Mag-Blok. It's not nearly as high-test as I had hoped, but it works for the most part. Occasionally I just leave a knife on the board, in a little arrangement with fruits or veg.
