We have a knife block and actually prefer it.
I was under the impression that storing knives loose, like in a drawer, where their blades can touch and nick each other is not good for them.
We bought a knife set by Farberware about 7yrs ago and have been very happy w/ it. The handle and blade on each knife are 1 piece. We store the knives in the block upside down so that the blades don't rub the block and dull. I also use the sharpening steel almost every time I use a straight blade just so I get nice cuts.
We use pretty much all the pieces in the set. I've thought of getting a magnetic strip, but I don't think I like the look of exposed blades.
