Magnetic Knife Bar (magnetism question)

SanityRemoved | Jul 20, 2010 08:02 PM

Currently I store my knives on a magnetic knife bar mounted inside a cupboard. Like some of you, the addiction results in the need for more storage space. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any magnetic knife bars 10 inches or under in which to mount on the other two interior walls of the cupboard. The easiest option in my mind is to get a magnetic knife bar as small as I can and then saw off enough of the bar to make it fit and possibly drill a new mounting hole. My only worry is that there may be a degradation of the magnet's strength. Has anyone attempted this? Those with scientific knowledge of magnets and magnetism can help dust the rust off my brain because I can't remember all the physical ways to harm a magnet.
