As we’ve said before on OnlyKnives, your cutlery will love you forever if you don’t keep them all bunched up together in a silverware drawer, because doing so increases the possibility of rust and damage to the knife blades. Keep them stored inside a knife block, or use a magnetic bar in your kitchen if room allows for it.
One such knife bar option is this magnetic tool from Bodum. It’s made from pure stainless steel, and features a perforated design across the surface. This makes it easier to lift the knife off of the surface area of the magnet. Plus it also adds to the bar’s modern, edgy feel.
According to the product, as well as the customers who bought it, the Bodum knife bar is very easy to install as well. Basically it mounts onto any space on your kitchen wall that’s most convenient for you. Straightforward template instructions are included to make it foolproof.
At 10.5 inches, it’s shorter than some knife bars out there but long enough to hold what you need. Multiple bars can be attached together to give the appearance of a longer piece.
The style and design of this particular knife bar is meant to complement a crisp, edgy modern kitchen. If you’re looking for something with a softer tone as well as extra length, check out the MIU magnetic knife bar.
