Magnetic Knife Strip- 18in Curly Maple

  • Due to the size and unique shipping requirements, these magnetic strips do not qualify for free shipping.  Please select free shipping during checkout.  We will assess the cost of shipping on a case-by-case basis and invoice you prior to shipping.  If the cost of shipping is not acceptable to you, we are happy to offer you a refund.


    These magnetic knife strips are the product of some curiosity and a friend who is way more skilled than I am at work like this.  Over the last few years, the maker of these magnetic strips has not only become a friend, but also a bit knife-obsessed.  After his collection started to grow a bit, he decided he wanted to figure out a better way to store them.  Having already had a magnetic strip from another maker, he decided that he should be able to do a better job, with higher end woods and better fit and finish.  We got together and spoke about what we though might make these better than other things we've seen on the market.  Some of the things we realized are that most of our customers wanted space for more knives, a wider strip to minimize blade rotation, stronger holding magnets, rounded edges, and a bit more thickness to the strips.  After some testing and a bit of learning about magnetic flux control, he was able to make some pretty impressive magnetic strips.


    These are entirely handmade, hand finished, and have a carnauba wax finish (which happens to be food safe).  We will include 2 mounting screws for any strips that require that kind of mounting.
