I am thinking about a magnetic knife rack but was worried the rack could put scratches on the knives. Is this an issue or not? I am already using a wooden drawer rack but it is full and I will be getting some new knives.

good racks can be used with sayas / sheaths. i've seen it done. that way u can hang them on the wall without worrying about scratching. but that depends on how strong the magnet on the magnetic rack though. just gotta find out which ones can.

Are the wood covered knife racks any good?. Currently I'm using lots of edge gaurds and sayas. Thinking about buying a cheaper one and finish with a wood veneer cover to prevent scratches. Which models seem to have the stronger magnets?

For the most part, magnetic racks are not going to scratch your knives as long as you don't slap them on there excessively hard or slide them around a whole lot. I would think that the blade steel is going to be much harder than any materials used in the rack. Then again, I have not used a very wide assortment of magnetic racks (3 or so) so I can't speak for all brands.

the cheap ones i've encountered are just two trips of metal where the magnets are contacting the magnetic rack and a plastic body. that kind will definitely scuff knives. i dunno if that kind of rack is even available elsewhere.

Buy one where the magnets are embedded in the wood from either BenchCrafted or a custom from CKtG.

Or have a custom knife block made to hang on your wall:
