I only keep a few knives up and rotate them. Generally there are only three or four knives up. A petty, chef, slicer and something stainless.

This is from JKI, cocobolo. Magnet placement is phenomenal (surprisingly difficult to do), no moving or sliding knives.

Lol, no axe, just a 24 inch splitter...just can't seem to find a need for it. So it acts as visual appeal...and scaring guests.

Finally got almost all the knives out with the install of a legit rack. This one was made by my friend in Winnipeg, Brent Biglow. It's 72 inches wide in total, couple inches at each end aren't usable, and a 1 inch gap in the middle between magnet sets. The knives don't slide or twist, and it's made with Manitoba elm, which is what many streets of Winnipeg are lined with. Winnipeg is actually home to the largest urban elm population in North America. He's on Instagram @biglowwoodcraft

Oh, and is that a Pioneer speaker in the second shot? CS-44?

Great eye on the loudspeakers, but these are CS-77, 3-ways. Picked them up around 8 years ago. Really efficient speakers and can't ask for a better sound in the spaces I've lived.
