I recently added a gorgeous, expensive, and very sharp knife to my kitchen toolkit, and my initial inclination was to frame it so that I could constantly gaze at its majesty. But it turns out that its function far surpasses its beauty, and so I need it not trapped behind glass, but easily accessible and at the ready. Everyone knows that good knives have no place tucked in a drawer alongside other tools where its blade is susceptible to dulling, so I bought a magnetic knife strip. It mounts easily and securely to the wall, and is the perfect accessible display for all my beautiful steely blades.
