I've had this magnetic knife holder for over two years, and if it's still made the same, it can damage your knives. I just picked up my knives from being sharpened, and the guy there asked me if I had a magnetic holder because he noticed odd nicks in approximately the same places on all four of my knives. When I got home and examined my knife holder (this 12" Norpro Magnetic Knife Bar), I noticed that both magnetic bars have metal strips on the sides (horizontally, top and bottom) and are open on the front where you place your knife blade. The metal strips on the sides of the magnets extend a tiny bit above the actual magnet, so when you put your knife on the rack you are actually hitting your blade edge on those small pieces of metal (four of them), and apparently this can end up nicking the edge of your knife blades. You are also hitting your blade edge on the metal pieces when you remove your knife off the rack, if you take it off spine first, which most people do.

The magnets are strong and the rack has always held my knives securely, but I can't keep using it knowing it's constantly damaging my knives. I could probably prevent it from happening if I was extremely careful, but I'm not always the most gentle person with my possessions.

Like I said, I bought mine over two years ago, so perhaps they've change the design. If the metal strips were the same height as the magnet, there wouldn't be a problem.

It's too bad really, because as I mentioned, the magnets are strong and secure, plus the price is right, but it's certainly not worth ruining your knives for!

I've owned this type of magnetic strip in the past and knew how useful it can be. Bought two, one for kitchen and one for greenhouse. They are superb. I would have bought the longer size if there was room, but alas, no. The magnets are super strong....strong enough for kitchen shears and all the knives that will fit and the other for gardening hand tools. I'm ordering another one today for the kitchen to hold microplaner, corer, mini whisk, scraper, etc. This little item eliminates digging around for a favorite tool in a drawer or pot. In addition, the wood, maple I believe, is attractive. You can't go wrong with this. Be sure to buy the largest one you can fit in your kitchen or garden shed or garage.

I bought two of these magnetic knife bars for my wife and although we haven't used them as much as I thought we would, I am pleased with their appearance and functionality. My one big gripe is that the screws that come with this product are terrible and strip out right away. When you install this don't even bother using the included screws! Once I threw away the defective screws and used some from the hardware store, installation was quick. I would recommend this product.

This is a great (and attractive) knife rack and I cannot think of any way to improve it, except for providing larger diameter holes for mounting. As usual, the mounting hardware furnished is useless, so just use some self-drilling wall anchors or toggle bolts. Once mounted, the rack's magnet easily grips onto a large chef's knife, which won't move until you touch it again. However, as with any device intended to work with sharp knives, this rack must be used with care - particularly to avoid disturbing adjacent knives, which can fall off the rack onto whatever is below them. Obviously, the rack must be mounted out of the reach of children.

The magnet of this rack is quite strong. If you pry up on either end of a knife the magnetic bond is broken and the knife is free to remove - or fall - if you are not holding it. A magnetic knife rack must function this way to be easy to use. But it can't be emphasized enough that the user must be careful not to disturb any knives which are adjacent to the knife you want to remove or replace to the rack. To address this, for maximum safety, the best thing is to have enough lineal footage of rack so your knives are not crowded together. A good spacing might be around 2" to 3", center to center, depending on knife width.

Size Name: 24-Inch Verified Purchase
I picked this particular knife bar because the shorter ones didn't seem like they'd be long enough for our needs. And I was right - leaving a comfortable amount of room between knives (and one bottle opener), our full set takes up the whole bar with only a slight amount to spare.

The only thing I could say against this product is that it comes with two screws but no anchors. It's possible that I was a little overly cautious when I mounted it, but the included screws only protrude into the wall by one inch and I figure of all the things I want to pull loose and fall to the floor... well, I don't want anything to do that, but something with a dozen sharp objects on it is about my worst-case scenario. I like all ten of my toes, thanks.

However it was a trivial thing to use a couple of cheap plastic anchors that came with something else and mount the bar to the wall. It's a great purchase - not only does it keep all our kitchen knives handy and ready to use but it allows us to put them away immediately after hand-washing rather than having to put them in a drying rack.
