Magnetic Strip at home well out of reach of small hands and fingers "Never in a Drawer". At work we have slotted knife racks we can take off the wall and run through a dish machine and one of my personal knife sets is tied up in a roll kit and my backup is in a small lockable case.

BenchCrafted.com - Mag-Bloks

they are like normal mag bars, but are made completely out of wood with no metal bits to chip/scratch your blades....plus, i think they are much more attractive....very reasonable prices, too....i do not personally have one, but i wish i did, and they get high praise from some of the knife-dedicated forums i visit regularly (and these people KNOW their knives)
I'm loving my Mag-Blok. This one is made out of leopard wood.

Very handy! But since I have no available wall space in the kitchen, I'd have to screw it to the ceiling, somewhat compromising its usefulness.

You could lower the ceiling...

Knowing me, I probably missed it, but do you have an URL for the slotted wooden that goes in a drawer?

Here are a couple available from Amazon (no tax, free shipping if your order totals $25 or more):

This is the one I have:


Amazon.com: Wüsthof In-Drawer 7-Slot Knife Storage Tray: Home & Garden

This one is slightly larger (too big for my drawer):



Amazon.com: Wüsthof 11-Slot In-Drawer Knife Organizer Tray-Oak: Home & Garden

Do NOT order this one -- it's very flimsy and poorly made:

Amazon.com: J.A. Henckels 13-Slot In-Drawer Knife Tray: Home & Garden

Thanks, Scotch :-) I looked at those, and I really do like them, kinda thought I would. -) Then I realized I couldn't put them in the drawers I have here. I ordered a Kapoosh for now, and I will, when I redo the cabinetry, will get those. :-)

I know I'm not the person that originally asked the question, but I did hit on this at just the right time. :-) Thank you again.

The Kapoosh is an intriguing concept, although I see there are a significant number of negative reviews on Amazon. You may want to check those out. Apparently the plastic rods become bent over time, preventing the full insertion of knives, particularly those with large blades. If it were me, I'd go with this one for the same price: http://www.amazon.com/Henckels-20-Sl...9229967&sr=1-1
