Keeping Knives Sharp Longer

The best knife blocks have slots that allow your knife blades to rest on their sides, rather than their edges; the slots are horizontal rather than vertical.

If yours has vertical slots, get in the habit of inserting your knives with the sharp edge facing up; over time, you'll take less edge off the knife when inserting and removing it from the block.
