Keep Your Knives Out of the Utensil Drawer to Keep Them Sharp and Happy
If you keep your cooking knives in a drawer with the rest of your utensils, you may be doing some serious damage to them, partially because they’re rattling around in there and bumping up against other utensils, and partially because they’re running into corners and the sides of your cabinets. In addition to keeping them sharp and well-honed, getting them out of that cabinet will drastically improve their longevity.
You could always pick up some knife sleeves a knife roll if you have to keep them in the drawer, or store them on the wall with a DIY magnetic knife strip. If you have a block, you can always try turning the blades upside down to keep them from dulling as you remove and replace them.
