Precisely the reason we developed the MAG-BLOK!

Cheers.

Yeah, I want to get a couple but I'm planning on moving in a couple months. Think I'll wait and see the new kitchen before I choose a color.

Buzzard,

I'm guessing you know me from KF? I signed up over there so long ago I was still using FJ on the few forums I frequented. I've been using Abouna everywhere else though for the last couple years at least. Never bothered to try to make a change over at KF.

Cheers.

absolutely gorgeous.

I feel pretty awesome knowing I have the same 10" shun that you do. It's my baby.

Eventually I want to get a few Mag-Blok magnetic storage bars; they're beautiful hardwood strips with magnets in the back. You hang 'em up and stick your knives on them like so:



I have a few different cases/rolls that I use. In all honesty my current job doesn't really require 1/2 the knives I normally take, but I always think what if I want one and don't have it along?


I got a large tool box full of knives and small gadgets, including a Chinese cleaver very identical to the one pictured above!

I like that one the best, because I use it for slicing, dicing and chopping fresh veggies for stir fries, soups, stews and such!

Question Chinese Knife - Cleaver

Rob,
maybe you already answered but how do you store your Chinese knife/cleaver? I have one, and I'd use it much more often - but I store it in the box in a drawer. I am justifiably afraid of dropping it on myself, or worse on my dogs - it will cut just about anything it comes in contact with! Suggestions are welcome!

The Shun knives are intriguing to me & I wouldn't mind trying a chef's knife to see how they are.

I only have one asian cleaver right now, and apparently I've stored it too well- it's been lost since my last move. I friggin' know I packed in a box with some other kitchen utensils but I can't find it for love or money.
