Whether you purchase the best kitchen knives money can buy or the cheapest knife set you can find, you have to consider how you are going to store your knives. Storing your knives properly is important for safety and for preventing dulling and damage to your knives. This article contains information and tips on how to store kitchen knives.
If you must store knives in a drawer, the best option I have found for storing knives in a drawer is a knife safe. These blade protectors prevent damage to both the blade and hands when storing knives in a drawer. Some two piece models snap over the blade while some are hinged and more like cases. Most are made of strong plastic and are dishwasher safe.
An in-drawer knife block is another option for storing knives in a drawer. Part drawer organizer and part knife block, drawer knife blocks are fitted with slots to hold knives of varying sizes and lie flat in a drawer. They provide protection and a way to store your knives out of site. The downsides are that they are not a very efficient use of drawer space and may not accommodate all of your knives. If you do not own a lot of knives and drawer space is not an issue, an in drawer knife block may be adequate.
