    Have serious humidity problem in my kitchen where temperature drops in the early morning causing micro- corrosion on the edges. That said, a few strokes on Cr2O3 will do.

    I remember Jon had a kitchen cart type thing in his apartment. He would sharpen on top by pushing it against a stable wall and then it had racks underneath it that could hold stones, bins, etc. That's what I'd want.

    I have small bookshelf with stones and knives/boxes, then some knives in boxes on another shelf, and some in my bag, and some in a drawer; I always seem to have knife in reach.

    I just bout a file cabinet for maps and/or blueprints at a salvage yard. The long term plan is to refinish it and make a base table height so it doubles as a work area. Similar to a nice craftsman or snapon tool box. I will do a work in progress once I get serious about the plan.

    I live in an old house built in the 1930's,sink has large areas on each side that have drain groves to the basin.I use a section of 2x4 (untreated wood)rag underneath & on top,gives the stone good height.17"piece of 2x4 let dry in sun,keep it in the garage.You can deburr wt. wood as well.

    I like Magbloks for knives I'm using.Only stones not using in boxes.Keep active stones & diamond plates in a Tansu drawer.

    I have a dedicated drawer in my kitchen. Stones, boxes, knives I'm not currently using, and assorted knife related stuff ends up in under bed boxes where I can easily roll them out to quickly access whatever I need. Not the ideal arrangement, but I can't justify taking up valuable pantry space with all my knives. Such is the joy of living in a 1928 bungalow. I'd love one of those fancy walk in pantries I see in some of the newer houses in our extended neighborhood, but I can't quite figure out where to put one in our house. LOL

    I keep mine in assorted knife rolls/bags. I switch them out depending on what I know I will be doing that day for service/prepping while keeping a few staples. I keep the knife rolls that I'm not currently using safely tucked in the bottom of my closet wih padding surrounding them.
