    SOLD Marko Tsourkan knife mag strip

    Thanks for everyone's interest; this strip is sold. I don't know how to mark this thread as Sold, so if I mod can help, I'd appreciate it. Additionally, I've just listed my other Tsourkan strip, at a lower price. See https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/threads/marko-tsourkan-knife-mag-strip-2.39515/

    WTS Marko Tsourkan knife mag strip (#2)

    After selling my new Tsourkan mag strip, I've decided to sell my other strip, too. It is very lightly used, for a month, and is still in great condition. The wood is cherry, and the back side measures 25 7/8" long, 2 7/8 tall, 1 1/8 thick. The faceplate measures 24 11/16 x 1 7/8. There are three...

    SOLD Marko Tsourkan knife mag strip

    I apologize---based on our conversation, I thought you'd decided to get a mag strip made locally because shipping costs to Ireland would be prohibitive (approximately $65)

    SOLD Marko Tsourkan knife mag strip

    I'm guessing that international postage rates will be prohibitively expensive, but I'll confirm tonight when I return home. In what country are you located?

    SOLD Marko Tsourkan knife mag strip

    I purchased this knife strip from Marko but moved soon afterwards and never had room to install it, so its brand new. The wood is cherry, and it measures 25 6/8" long, 2 7/8 tall, 1 3/16 thick. Not trying to make a profit---I'm selling for less than I paid for it; $160+$25 s/h. I'll happily...

    Mag strip strength?

    No, it was hand-crafted, and more than double the cost of Mag-blok strips. At that price, I was expecting a well-crafted product that would perfectly hold each knife securely, instead of acting like an autonomous guillotine. Are my expectations out of line?

    Mag strip strength?

    I just purchased a new wall-mounted mag strip. Before hanging it, I tested it by putting a few heavy-ish/long-ish knives on it; they held securely, but it was easy to spin them in place by gently nudging the knife's top or bottom. Furthermore, knives exhibit a tendency to spin toward a...

    Anyone tried VMatter knives?

    Thanks for the update, Dave. "Heavy usage" is relative, so it's great to hear a professional chime in. Actually, I googled this site for hits before I posted my query, and I didn't see any earlier conversations. Hrm. Maybe I'll have to work on my search skills, too.
