It is six months later, and I just ordered a second one of these for my kitchen. I have been very pleased with the one I have, but the recent addition of a cleaver and a second chef's knife has exceeded the capacity of my existing bar, so a second one was needed.
I'd like to respond briefly to those who are bothered by the magnetic cogging which causes knives to have a preferred location on the bar. I have my bar mounted at an angle on the side of a cabinet. In this configuration it works very well, And I have no problem using the full capacity of the bar. Currently my bar is holding an 8" chef's knife, a 12" granton slicer, a 10" all purpose blade, a tomato knife, a boning knife, and a paring knife. In the angled position this is the full capacity of the block, and the full width of the side of the cabinet. I will be adding the second bar above this one, doubling the capacity of that space. Clearly I find the cogging to be a minor nit, and remain satisfied after 6 months of daily use. As always, your mileage may vary.
The Bamboo Magnetic Bar works very well. It holds my knives and allows easy access. The strength of the magnets is a good balance between holding the knives and having to pry them off with a crow bar. The bamboo surface keeps my knives edges safe from nicks.
My only complaint is the way the magnets are placed in the bamboo block. There are some dead spots on the board. Annoying at first but I am used to it now. These dead spots suck the knife into a position that may not be optimal, with a little rearranging its works fine.
If the magnets were consistent across the board I would give it fiver starts.
I would have liked the magnet to be a little stronger, but for the price I cant complain too much. I have a large 13 inch carving knife and a 10 inch chef knife that are a bit on the heavy side and the magnet is just strong enough to hold onto them. All my other knives fit on it with no problem so as long as you don't have giant knives you should be ok with this bar. Also forged knives having more metal in the blade stick better than restaurant style stamped steel blades. The more metal in the blade the stronger the magnet will stick to it. I have a few boning knifes I bought from a restaurant supply store with stamped steel blades. Since the blades are very thin and the handles are very heavy in comparison they tend to not grip the magnet as securely. If your kitchen knives are forged and have a heavy metal tang they will stick to this magnet like glue.
The one issue that I found is that there are certain places on the holder where a knife would not stay vertical - magnets turn the knife at an angle (see my second picture).
I have an 18" Tom Douglas magnetic knife holder which does not have this problem and which I like better overall, but for this application it was too long.
This 12" magnetic holder worked great, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a shorter magnetic knife holder to hold 3-4 knives.
However it works just find when I store my knives handle up (opposite of the product photo) so if they do slip, the bolster/handles keep them from sliding off.
Overall, a good, handy way to store your knives, protect their edges and keep them readily available.

It says it has a magnetic 'strip' inside which is a misnomer.Read more
