There’s no doubt about it, knives last much longer when you keep them properly stored. At Arima Homewares, we are proud to stock a wide range of attractive, functional and secure knife storage options.

If you’re looking for knife blocks and storage online, make sure you check out the extensive collection at Arima Homewares.

Why proper knife storage is so important

Cheap knives don’t keep their edge, nick easily, and are just not as reliable as well-made knives. So if you’ve taken the time and spent money investing in a quality knife, you want to make sure that you take good care of it. Here are a few reasons why buying proper knife storage is important:

  • It offers the right protection from rust
  • -Most knives are made from steel, an iron alloy, and can develop rust if they aren’t cared for properly. Not only does rust on your knives look bad, but it is not safe to ingest and can affect the food you’re preparing. So whenever you wash your knives, it’s strongly recommended that you dry them straight away and you don’t leave them lying in the sink. It’s also better to handwash your knives rather than using a dishwasher, as a dishwasher will leave them sitting in water for longer than necessary compared to when handwashing them. After drying your blades completely, place them back in their storage unit (whether that’s an in-drawer knife holder or a knife storage block) so they are well-protected from rust.

  • It helps to maintain an edge on your knives
  • To maintain their sharp edge, you need to make sure that you’re storing your knives properly. Unless enclosed in a blade guard, simply throwing them into a drawer isn’t good enough. Not only is this potentially dangerous for people reaching into the drawer, but not storing them correctly can contribute to your blades getting damaged and losing their sharpness. While sharpening your knife is not a difficult task, making sure your knives are stored correctly means that you don’t need to spend as much time sharpening them or removing nicks. It’s a win-win.

  • It keeps your knives safe from small hands
  • If you have small kids at home, it's even more important that your knives are properly put away. Storing them openly in a drawer with the rest of your kitchenware can be very dangerous to your little ones’ fingers as they reach in to grab other utensils. To prevent this from happening, simply use a knife storage drawer insert in a locked drawer or place your countertop knife block well out of harm’s way.

  • It prevents bacteria from building up
  • If you’re simply throwing your knives into a drawer or cupboard, you potentially increase the risk of your knives coming into contact with bacteria and germs, as dust and food residue tend to accumulate in closed spaces. However, knife block will stop this from happening. A good knife block is easy to clean, whether it’s a magnetic or a slotted knife block. Make sure you always dry your knife block thoroughly after washing it and before using it again to prevent rust from forming on your knives.

    In-drawer knife storage

    If you have minimal countertop space or don’t like keeping your knives on the kitchen bench, then a knife storage drawer insert might be the right option for you. With an in-drawer knife holder, you can easily slide your knives into any of the slots to keep them organised and prevent them from getting nicked or damaged.

    Countertop knife block storage

    If you want to keep your knives stored safely and securely on your kitchen benchtop, we have several different options for you to choose from at Arima Homewares. We offer a wide range of both magnetic knife storage blocks and knife blocks with slots, so finding the right option to suit your style and preferences is easy.

At Arima Homewares, we have knife storage options for professional cooks as well.
