    I don't know how good the William Henry kitchen knives where, but I always thought that their stand was one of the most elegant that I'd seen. It shouldn't be too tricky to get a woodworker to build something like this that would fit the exact dimensions of your knives.

    I use a mag strip and I've never had any movement/floating blades. Does this really happen???
    The only knife I have that doesn't seem to hold with that nice "locked in" feeling is my S35VN pettysuki. It, however, still holds still and doesn't feel like it's going anywhere.

    Yes.
    I store my knives on a selfmade magnetic rack (rare earth magnets in walnut boards) and when taking a few knives down putting them next to each other the blades rotate towards each other sometimes.

    It all depends on the construction of mag block. If you use rectangular magnets arranged in a line, you won't have any floating. If you use circular magnets and arrange them in rows with spaces in between, you might have some floating as the closest magnet would pull more.

    I wasn't talking about floating ON the block, I was referring to the effects of magnetization when the knives are OFF the magblock and next to each other, e.g. on a board etc.

    I have a few that, after years of sliding on and off a mag rack, are slightly magnetic. The only 1 that I've seen rotate towards another knife when sitting on the board is a long thin slicer that balances right past the handle and spins very easily... and even then it has to be really close to begin with.

    How bout a "reverse block" that would hold the handles securely, but leave the blades pointed up in the air. when you get bored or are pressed for time, you could just throw food at them like in the last Carter video.

    Yup. BUT, I was referring to two knives on a cutting board, as Rottman pointed out.
