I've seen many latino and asian cooks in kitchens I've worked in use cardboard cut out the exact dimensions of the knife, then wraped with the circulars from sunday papers, the glossy and almost enamel paper and then wrapped again by the plastic wrap from the kitchen. Creates a nice protective barrier around the knife and is cheap and easy.

I put my knives down the crack between the stove and the counter. Free, no edge wear, convenient.

As far as putting knives edge up or down in blocks;

When the kn is Edge DOWN, it is resting on the heal of blade & top of tip against wood. Correct

When in block EDGE UP, kn is now resting on spine of blade ( where you may rest your thumb ) & about 1-2" in from the tip ,Right On the Edge, dulling a very usefull part of the edge.

We own a chain of cutlery stores & a couple of months into each new employees time, we come in to see all the knives in blocks up side down. Everyone must think of this revelation at one time or another.

I've tried the knife safe on a carbon knife, and the rubber nubs that hold the blade ended up staining the blade, even though the knife was only in there for a short period of time (a few minutes). I was able to remove the staining after some time, but ended up returning that holder.

Has anyone tried a these on any ceramic knives? I have a few Kyocera ceramics and have yet to find a solution I like. I don't like putting them in a block and am currently just using the drawers, but don't like the idea of the ceramic blades banging around with everything else - too brittle and too expensive.

I do the exact same thing. It is very convenient and makes them easy to access.

Thanks

If you can find the magnetic covers (Forschner Edge-Mag) then I'd suggest using that and just covering the edge of the cleaver. The rest will hang out, but at least the sharp parts will be covered.

YES!!! Horizontal is the best way. The knives don't rest on ANY part of the edge. Furthermore, the knife block slot doesn't get worn when you slide the knife in and out. At least that happened to my first knife block that had vertical slots. My horizontal slotted block is now older and gets more use than my first one and doesn't show that wear pattern.

great information on how to care for kitchen knives. my husband's an engineer, so this site got my attention purely by its name. i'll be sure to pass it on to my friends who are engineers, too.

please feel free to visit my food blog, My Halal Kitchen at http://www.myhalalkitchen.com

all the best.
