We have generated a large collection of knives. I guess this happens when you blend two households. When I am unloading the dishwasher first I attempt to jam knives into the woodblock and if that doesn’t work I put them into the knife drawer where they may or may not be seen again. I found two solutions for our knife storage problem the first was the magnetic knife holder from EvaSolo.
I am favoring the universal knife block only because I am one of those people who can bump her own head on her own kitchen cabinets while unloading the dishwasher. I can only imagine what type of damage I could do with knives suspended in the air.
