AT On... Storing Knives

032709knife-01.jpgWhen we moved into our first apartment, we made the traditional IKEA run to pick up all the basics for the kitchen (knives included). At the time, we went for the traditional butcher block to hold our cutlery but recently, the organizer in us wants something more sleek. The problem is...

Seeing the knives (or at least the sharp, pointy blades out) makes us uncomfortable. While the knives aren't exactly put away in a butcher block, their blades are at least covered up. The other option here would be a drawer for stowing our knives. But we're also worried about them rolling around all loosey goosey and stress that when someone goes to retrieve a knife, they'll come back without a finger.

So how about it AT readers--how do you store your knives and why? Are you paranoid like us or do you have a better solution that we don't know about?
