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.
Among the vast range of cutlery items available, knives have a prominent position. As they come into frequent use in the kitchen, it is essential that you have good cutting knives. The best kitchen knives are found in makes of stainless steel, ceramic, carbon steel and more. Among them, plastic knives are the most preferred ones in food service stations, as they make the cutting and slicing process simpler, and reduce the risk of accidents. Knives are presently available in a variety of names including butter knife, bread knife, chef's knife, utility knife and more, according to the purpose for which they are used.
Ask most people, and they will tell you that a knife has a blade and a handle. Usually that is the limit of the information a person has about knife structure. However, knowing a little more helps to choose a good set of knives. The handle of a knife is used for holding and for controlling the knife. Some handles are made from wood. These require careful care and will become damaged, if left soaking in water. There are knife handles that are hand carved. Synthetic materials, even plastics that are heat resistant, are commonly used for handles. Metal handles are also common and provide long life for a handle.
