    Default Anyone own those Rachael Ray colored paring knives?

    I saw them, and her, on QVC and wondered if they were any good.
    She made some dumb comment about using one color for this, one for
    that....like, you can't just wash em and use em universally?
    And the sheath justification was - you won't cut yourself as you're
    thrashing about in the drawer. Come ON, who reaches that fast into a
    drawer, and who throws his knives helter skelter? I bet ppl chuck the
    sheathes after a while - one more PITA.

    I bought the red one from when they were sold individually, I have it
    about five years... I have one with a natural wood handle from more
    than 20 years ago. For the price they can't be beat.

    I bet they don't. I'm going to get sheathes for the knives that are
    stuck in my knife drawer.

    Rattling knives uncovered in a drawer is certain to damage the edges on
    sharp knives

    If you have loose knives in your drawer, you can buy holders that fit on
    them at any knife store. However, my wife bought something like this at
    Costco long ago:

    http://www.amazon.com/Ironwood-Gourm...zer/dp/B0017T1
    KIE

    I typed

    knife drawer organizer

    in Google and got 25,100 hits.

    Personally I keep any reasonably sharp knife in a block, even the short
    ones. If I put my knives in drawers I'd need a suture station in the
    kitchen. A sheath is nice when transporting knives in a knife roll, but
    otherwise useless to me.

    I guess that's a good point too if you're not alrady deterred by the
    prospect of bleeding out from feeling around in a drawer for something
    sharp.

    I've kept knives in a drawer but they were placed with the edge
    towards one corner, they weren't just scattered around with the
    spatulas and the wooden spoons.

    If you have good knives you don't just throw them in a drawer. You
    keep them in a block or in sheaths or on a magnetic knife rack.
    I'm talking about GOOD knives. El cheapo ones...who cares.

    I find a good block with horizontal slots, so the blade doesn't rest
    on the bottom, the best choice.

    A vertical slot block permits the blade to be up or down. Not the
    best choice for my J.A. HENCKEL knives.

    I've considered one of these for the knife drawer:

    <http://www.chefcentral.com/Victorino...fe-Roll-P1435C
    176.aspx>

    We've always kept our knifes in a knife drawer. Don't go slamming it
    about and you won't damage your knives. The drawer is long and narrrow,
    and I never "dig" thru it!

    The knife drawer is dedicated. There are no other tools in there except
    for the sharpener and steel.

    Righty, it's just a cheapo paring knife we're tawkin' here, costs like
    $4. I keep my good knives handy in a block, others in a case in my
    pantry, but I keep a couple cheapo paring knives in the drawer of my
    PC desk and even usta keep one in a pencil cup until I noticed the
    handle getting lots of teeth marks.

    Thanks for the reminder, the selection has improved since I looked
    last. Yes, I've considered them - but it's an odd sized drawer and I
    have one knife that has to fit catty corner in it. OTOH, I did see a
    knife organizer that might work for the mish mash of cheapo knives I
    keep in that drawer (except the biggest one, of course). It's
    certainly less expensive than buying a sheath for every single knife
    in there.
