Magnetic Stainless Steel Knife Holders
Best Kitchen buy...EVER!
I simply love this magnetic knife holder. Period.
It was easy to assemble. Two screws and ready to hang your knives!
It's sleek, saves tons of counter space and is really strong! I see absolutely no cons to list. If you buy this, enjoy!

I purchased 2 of these years ago and used them for over 10 years! To be sure the knife is up securely, you need to make sure it is properly balanced between the blade & handle. It doesn't take long to get used to---the only knife I ever had problems with was a long carving knife. That one I had to move up until the base of the blade was on the magnet. It was the only one I was extra careful with.
Just one word of caution. As with any knives keep out of reach of children and use common sense when placing or removing. The magnets are very strong so you must have a good grip on the handle when putting or taking.
To avoid possible problems you want to secure this holder over the sink or counter top. You don't want to chance a dropped knife hitting a pet or child directly below. I kept my two mounted on the sides of cabinets located on either side of my sink. This also made it easy to get to them when needed. FYI I never had a knife fall off the rack! These are easy to mount & remove.

Magnetic knife Holder
Purchased this to mount under cabinet. It doesn't have a strong enough magnet to use in this way. The knifes fall off if you touch them or close the cabinet door. Maybe it would be okay on the wall.

Sadly it is not very strong!
I bought the exact same one, same company (RSVP) 8 years ago which is EXCELLENT and for sure the company has put in a cheaper less magnetic double strip than my first one. It was even slightly off set straight out of the box. Hubby had to screw it in in stages as it straightened out.
Sadly it does not hold the knives in the same secure manner as my other one. I would try something else!!.... But unfortunately I wanted the one to match my first one. Had I known it would not hold I would have gone for a different brand.
