From a retail perspective I hate knife blocks. They're heavy and expensive to ship and get dinged up easily. Cutting boards are even worse since they get subjected to lots of washing and drying and oiling and they always are not quite perfect.

So I haven't searched around for any lately. I know there are a few guys that will do custom ones but they're expensive.

You can get knife guards/sayas, drawer insets, magnetic strips, counter blocks, original boxes, etc...

Personally we have a couple magnetic racks on our walls for the ones we use everyday. Then we have an in drawer knife holder that we put stuff that we don't use quite as much. Then there is usually one or two laying on our cutting board (we tend to leave the bread knife on the board)
