The Best Way To Store Your Japanese Knives

Japanese knives are one of the most popular kinds of knives for home chefs. They're high-quality, and they have a reputation for being extremely sharp and durable. If you're lucky enough to own a set of Japanese knives, you'll want to make sure that they stay in good condition so that they'll last you for years to come. That's where proper knife storage comes into play. In this blog, we'll discuss how to store your new Japanese knives in a way that will protect them from damage and make it easy for you to find them when you need them.


Storing your Japanese kitchen knives safely

When you get a brand new Japanese knife, you may be wondering about the best and safest way to store it. Here are a few options:

Wall magnets

Wall magnet: the best way to show off your collection. If you're a knife enthusiast, you know how important it is to keep your knives in good condition. You want them to look as good as they feel. One of the best ways to do that is with magnetic wall strips. They're easy to use and allow you to show off your collection in a way that's both decorative and practical, while minimizing use of precious bench space. Magnetic wall strips are also great because they allow easy access and don't risk scratching your knives. Super strong magnets also help them to stay put with no risk of any accidents in the kitchen. Avoid stainless steel magnetic strips as these can scratch your knives. 

Knife blocks

If you're looking for a way to store your new Japanese knives, knife blocks are one of the most popular options. They're easy to use and make it simple to access your knife collection from your benchtop. You can find knife blocks in a variety of styles, colours, and materials. Multi-knife blocks are also a good idea as they hold more than one blade at a time, so you could keep a collection together. These can be great for people who want to keep their knives close at hand while cooking and preparing food.

Display stands

There are many ways to display your knives, but one of the best is with a display stand. They are not the most practical way to store your knives, however, they are a great way to show off your collection and they can be used to display your most used knives. Display stands are great for dinner parties as they can be used to wow guests with your collection. A good tip is to use a display stand if you have a small number of knives or as an alternative to storing them in a knife block.

Knife rolls

Knife rolls are a great way to keep your knives safe and secure, especially if you're the kind of person who likes to move around a lot. They're also good for keeping them hidden away since most knife rolls have compartments specifically designed for each knife. The best part about knife rolls is that they're compatible with all kinds of knives and can keep any knife safe and secure. Plus, they come in all sorts of colours so that you can pick out one that matches your style and your kitchen.

Blade guard

A blade guard protects the knife while it's stored, but it can also be very helpful in preventing damage to other utensils in your kitchen drawer. A blade guard also helps to prevent damage to other utensils by keeping them separate from your knife. These are fine for stainless knives, but only a short term solution for carbon knives, as the felt inside a blade guard can draw in moisture over prolonged periods of storage and risk rusting your knife.
