Knife blocks are a great storage option that displays your collection and keeps your knives safe. Most knife blocks will accommodate not only your knives, but a honing steel and a pair of kitchen shears. If you have steak knives, select a Knife block with a secondary tier for smaller knives.
A magnetic knife block is best if you have many longer knives. Not slanted like a normal knife block, which only allows longer knives at the back of the block, magnetic blocks can accommodate any knife as long as the block is tall.
Select a high quality wooden or magnetic knife block from among top-quality brands like Kussi, Shun, Swissmar, Wüsthof, and Zwilling J.A. Henckels.
