Best Magnetic Knife Strips

Knife strips make any cooking scenario easier. Simply grab a knife off the wall, get to work chopping and cutting, and pop the knife back up when you're done. Knife strips also free up storage space in the kitchen and make rummaging in the drawers for utensils and other implements a lot safer, since you don't have to worry about being cut by an errant blade. Furthermore, a stylish knife strip can make even the most drab kitchen a little more hip and chic. Here are some of the best knife strips for each application and use.

Best for Tools

Modern Innovations 16 Inch Stainless Steel Magnetic Knife Bar

None

Strong and Stable

This heavy-duty knife bar is great for larger implements or tools.

What We Liked

At two pounds, this Modern Innovations bar is much heavier than the other bars, but it offers strong magnets to match. This would be a great purchase for those looking to store large knives in the kitchen, but also tools, keys, toys, or anything else you have in mind. A great all-around purchase for magnetic storage. At 16 inches, it provides enough space for implements without taking up too much room. Order Online.

Best Quality

Ouddy Magnetic Knife Holder

None

High-Caliber Holder

A great, top-notch knife strip with a strong, dual-sided magnet and plenty of room.

What We Liked

This 16-inch strip is half the weight of the previous strip and designed with top-quality stainless-steel construction. It also has a magnet on the backside, making it easy to pop up on the fridge or any other magnetic surface, leaving essentially no setup time whatsoever. This is a great purchase for those looking for a high-quality knife strip for kitchen use, although it would hold up well in a garage or any other magnetic storage application too.

Most Stylish

Coninx Magnetic Knife Holder

None

Trendy Bamboo Magnet Board

This hip bamboo magnetic board is sure to wow dinner guests.

What We Liked

These all-natural bamboo wood holders take the prize for coolest knife strip. Who would’ve thought a bamboo board would be magnetized? This bamboo is also anti-bacterial, an added bonus, and easy to clean. There’s no need to take up wall space here, just set up the board on your countertop and pop knives onto it. It’s a perfect hybrid between a traditional knife block and the other magnetic strips on this list. The only downside here is it does take up counter space, and it offers less overall knife storage space than the strips. Still, this Coninx bamboo block makes up for that with style points. Get It Here.

Easiest to Install

Adhesive Magnetic Strip for Knives Kitchen

None

Extremely Easy to Use

This knife strip is adhesive, so it just sticks right onto the wall.

What We Liked

This is by far the simplest of the bunch and the easiest to set up and use. All you need to do is clean the surface, peel off the sticky backing, and press it onto whatever surface you want. It also comes with two separate strips, offering 24 inches of lateral space for storing all your knives and other kitchen implements. This is a great purchase for anyone who doesn’t want to mess with screws or any other installation, and it also offers more storing space than the two other strips on this list. Buy Now.
