Knife Holder Options for Organized Kitchens

Keeping your kitchen tools and utensils organized and accessible is a key step towards creating a functional kitchen space. Proper knife storage is especially important as these tools are so frequently used. When you select the right knife holder, you'll never have to pause while cooking to frantically search for the right blade while chopping and slicing ingredients. Plus, a quality holder will also ensure your blades stay sharp and rust-free. Choose from a variety of great storage options from Williams Sonoma and take control of your kitchen cutlery today.

Knife Blocks

If you have free counter space available, knife blocks are a wonderful storage option. These blocks can sit on any flat surface and come with a variety of slots for storing large and small knives. Available in modern metal or rustic wood styles, there's a block to suit every kitchen.

While small knife blocks can store the basics, large knife blocks with 20 to 35 slots can store your entire collection. One downside to using a storage block is that since the blades will be fully hidden within the block, it may take some time to memorize where each knife fits.

In-Drawer Knife Storage

If you'd prefer to keep your countertops clear, in-drawer knife storage is another great knife holder option. Slot knife organizers fit in most standard sized drawers and feature seven to 15 protective knife slots. They can be used to store everything from small paring knives to professional chef's knives.

Cutlery trays are another in-drawer storage option for your knives. Because they feature flexible dividers instead of fixed slots, these trays are perfect for storing mismatched cutlery and uncommonly sized knives.

Magnetic Knife Bars

Keep your blades within reach at all times with a handy magnetic knife bar. These skinny bars feature strong magnets that can securely hold most steel knives. They are available in modern and traditional styles as well as a few different lengths depending on the number of knives to store.

Magnetic knife strips are a popular option as they can be mounted on almost any flat surface in the kitchen. Since you'll be able to see the entire knife blade and handle, you can quickly choose the right knife for various cutting techniques. However, these magnet bars are not a good choice for households with small children.

Blade Guards

Sometimes the only option for knife storage is in a communal cutlery drawer. In this case, protect yourself and your knives with blade guards. These guards come in various sizes and are built to easily slip over almost any type of knife, encasing the sharp blade to protect from cuts, rust or scratches. Blade guards are also good to have when moving to a new home or if you're bringing knives with you to cook at a friend's house or at your vacation home.

Knife Rolls

Blade guards are one option for transporting knives, but if you'll be bringing your collection along with you often, a knife roll is the better investment. Knife rolls are fabric carrying cases built specifically for knife collections. They're made of durable nylon or polyester and come with a handle and a shoulder strap.

Knife rolls come with various elasticized pockets for storing eight or more of your personal knives. They also come with other pockets that can be used to bring along cooking accessories like serving utensils, miscellaneous cutlery and other small tools.

With the proper knife holder in your kitchen, your entire blade collection will always be well-protected and easy to find. Choose from stationary organizers like knife blocks, in-drawer trays and magnetic knife bars or holders that can travel like blade guards and knife rolls. With quality knife storage and adequate knife maintenance, your blades will be sharp and ready to chop for years to come.
