Can you use a standing magnetic knife block that is too short? Say you have a two-sided, wood magnetic block that stands on your counter, but the block (not counting the base) is only 180 mm. Would it be okay to put a 240 mm gyuto there, such that the 1/4 or more of the blade closing to the handle is not in contact with the wood and not gripped by the magnet? And is this kind of standing block safer in that the knife is less likely to fall on the floor due to a freak accident?
