    Best Wall-Mounted Knife Rack?

    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.

    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.

    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.

    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.
