Storing your knives in a drawer is a good option to hide your knives from the sight of your children. This type of storage is safe until you hurt your hands while grabbing a knife.

A magnetic knife strip, as compared to drawer storage, showcases the knives in order, so you can quickly grab the knife of your choice.

Countertop storage vs. magnetic knife holder
A knife block on the countertop keeps your knives secured. It can hold knives of various sizes. Besides occupying space on the kitchen counter, it is difficult to clean and easily holds more bacteria and dirt.

A wall mounted magnetic knife holder, unlike countertop storage, is space saving, can be easily cleaned with a wipe and does not hold any bacteria. In addition, the magnetic knife holder keeps the edges of the knives sharp and shiny.

How many knives can magnetic knife strips hold?
Magnetic knife strips come in various sizes. A long magnetic knife holder can accommodate 8 to 10 knives at a time. Avoid overcrowding your magnetic knife rack. If you have more knives to hang, add another magnetic strip. Knife Organizer vs. Magnetic Knife Strip

How can I remove a knife from the magnetic holder?
Hold the knife firmly by the handle, twist and pull the knife off. In this way, the edge of the knife won’t rub against the strip.

Which magnet is best for securely fastening knives on the wall?
Neodymium magnetic strips are the best option for safely fastening knives on walls in your kitchen. They are very strong magnets that prevent your knives from falling and allow you to safely store your knives. However, do keep in mind that extreme temperatures can change the properties of these magnets, and they may lose their magnetism. Knife Organizer vs. Magnetic Knife Strip
