I love my IKEA magnetic knife rack but I noticed it’s been nicking my lovely stainless steel knives! Oh no! So I found some useful information online which I hope you find helpful too! If you have any other ideas please do drop me a line! Thanks!
#DiploTips: You want to twist the knife onto its back edge to get it off the bar, though – don’t drag the knife around on the bar or allow the cutting edge to contact it. source
When putting it back onto the rack make sure you place it back edge first with the knife parallel to the wall and not at an angle because if you do the knife will snap back in such a way that the blade can be nicked
IKEA HACK: Fabric-covered knife rack
A great idea I found online is covering the rack with cloth like the picture below. I’m hoping the softer surface will also help prevent nicks. What do you think? Click here for DIY instructions!
Hmmm… maybe this can be my weekend project f I can find material that I like? Hope it inspires you to do a weekend project as well! Enjoy!
I have seen it, but I don’t own one. I think this is a fantastic idea. I get scared of seeing knives outside for some reason. I know that it’s very irrational though. Covering the metal part with fabric is a cute idea! It adds character to the kitchen, too. I have seen the same IKEA knife magnet used as a matchbox car wrack in a kids room. All the matchbox cars were lined up on the wall with the magnet bar. I thought that it was a neat idea.
