    Carbon steel blades are in blade guards that has a soft lining and seems to pull any lingering moisture off the blade. The rest are in a regular block like the one posted above.

    I like these but my fiance squashed the idea because she thinks we'll look like serial killers:

    In guards, though. I want to be a better knife owner. I'm thinking about a block.

    I really dislike blocks, for some reason. And I absolutely hate magnetic strips. I think they are ugly and are a poor way to hold your knives. So for me, it's a choice between the lesser of two evils. Even the year I spent working FOH, I still kept my knives in blade guards and knife roll.
