Maqnets have a nasty "habit" of dulling knives that have recently been sharpened. This can be further aggravated when the knives fall onto the floor of your RV during transit. Do not keep sharp knives in a drawer. Use a wooden block designed for the purpose, and always place the knives into the block in such a way that, when you reach for one and pull it out of the block, the cutting side is where you expect it to be. Otherwise there could be blood shed. During transit, if you have limited storage space, you can place the knife block into your kitchen sink and wrap it in a kitchen towel for safety.

We have the one from Ikea in our coach for over 50,000 K and also had in our fifth wheel for a # of years. Never had a problem with it and would put an one in a new RV again.

It will hold them until it doesn't. I use the cheapo white handle commercial knives from SAMs Club and the Old Hickory 1095 knives. I keep them in a drawer. If they get damaged I will either fix them or replace them. They hold an edge well and take an edge well.

So reading all the replies gives me the impression there are 2 camps, one who have used a magnetic rack and never had as issue, and those who would never use a magnetic rack and have offered alternate methods. My DW really wants to free up draw space so it's either the rack (non-magnetic or magnetic) or the block in the sink idea someone had. She REALLY likes the magnetic version, so now I need to find the best version of that and see if we lose any knifes.

Here's pics of our setup, the double row is on the sidewall, the single is on the sidewall of the frig so a forward facing wall. Great for the salt and pepper shakers if you find metal ones.

That's awesome! DW is sold. Thank you for the pics, that clarified the "double row" idea.

That looks like it has a double row of magnetics? Is it a more high end one than the IKEA version that is all of $15?
