The magnetic holder is a bar with a pair of magnetic strips for placing the knives on a vertical surface. It is an alternative to classic deck stands. Wall mounting makes the use of knives more convenient. Apply similar holders in both home kitchens and professional ones, also you can use them in garages for fastening tools.
A couple of them are obvious – knives, tools are always at hand, and even the savings are obvious. Indeed, when the stand does not clutter the work surface, but it is easy to use any desired object, this increases comfort. Keep knives in the desk drawer is inconvenient, as it will be necessary to look for them when necessary. With such a holder, the entire assortment of tools, so popular in the kitchen, is always in sight, but it does not interfere.
Storage on the vertical is better than using the deck for another reason – hygienic. Traditional coasters become contaminated with time, the remnants of water (and sometimes food) accumulate, threatening the development of microorganisms and bacteria. And washing such things is not so simple. The magnetic holder for the knives to maintain in perfect purity will not be difficult. The moisture inside the closed stand can condense even when the temperature drops. And this factor can first change the color of steel, and then deteriorate performance. With a magnet, such drawbacks of storage simply do not exist. Less obvious advantage is the preservation of sharpness of knives. If these items are stored in a cutlery box, they all lie together, then they just go dumb with each other. The set of knives on the magnetic holder is located more accurately, without contact of the instruments with each other, which ensures more careful storage.
Place the magnetic holder for the knives recommended on a fixed surface, firmly, but not tightly screwing it to the base. Fastening is carried out on a pair of screws, and can be made as a secret, which makes the holder even more aesthetic and attractive. In no case should you attach it to various doors, as a sharp opening can trigger a fall of the knife, tools. The quality bar perfectly retains even the largest heavy tool (for example, axes). However, if the house has children, then do not place the bar within their reach.
Analyzing what customers say about the holder for magnetic knives (reviews), one can come to the conclusion that domestic users place on it not only knives. On a quality magnet, you can fix various tools in the workshop, scissors, calipers, metal rulers, etc. So order in a convenient sequence and locate in the right place, you can almost any metal objects of different sizes and purposes.
The wall holder for knives is one of those products that is simple enough, if not elementary simply, you can do at home, as they say, without straining. The only thing that is required here is to acquire powerful neodymium magnets of any shape – the configuration of the role does not play. Their thickness is important – optimally this size is from 3 to 5mm, because they can be embedded in a body of various thicknesses. Among other things, you will need a body, which, again, can be made from almost any improvised material – optimally it is wood, but if someone has a fatty (up to one centimeter) textolite or plastic in the household, then it will also fit. Suitable even for aluminum floors, but it should be understood that the knives on it will leave scratches, and after a short period of time such a holder will have to be thrown away or altered.
To do this you will need a workpiece for the future bar and a special drill (for wood, metal, depending on which holder you are making). It will be necessary to drill holes for magnets.
Then you need to insert the magnets inward and make the mount.
