How does a magnetic knife holder work?

Good magnetic knife holders and blocks/stands have their magnetic part hidden inside the wood so they are neat, perfectly safe for your knives and still extremely strong. Good magnetic knife strips hold the knives firmly on the rack and pull them close with a nice slapping noise.

Also, are magnetic holders bad for knives?

As long as you pick a good magnetic strip, the knives will not slip or fall. That being said, there is a balance. If you choose a magnet too weak, then the knives may slip. If you choose a magnet too strong, then it can take more effort every time to pull the knives out.

One may also ask, do all knives stick to magnets? Although knives and kitchen sinks are both made of stainless steel, they're made of different combinations of alloys so they have different magnetic properties. But unlike other grades of stainless steel, the 300 series is not magnetic. The reasons for this come down to their structure.
