This mount will keep your fine cutlery handy, safe and finely displayed.


You will need to purchase 4 neodymium disc magnets (D83 1/2" dia. x 3/16" thick) from http://www.kjmagnetics.com/proddetail.asp?prod=D83. I bought an extra one and it helped get the magnets into place at the bottom of the cylinder.

You will also need strong double-sided mounting tape to stick the finished product to the wall, tile or cabinet.

Tip: I used a green scouring pad to remove the shiny finish that comes from the printing platform. I ended up with a nice uniform matte finish.

Slide the magnets down and press into place. The extra magnet will help if you use it on the outside of the mount. Use the magnetic force through the plastic wall to slide the magnet where you want it. If you just drop it down, it will immediately snap on top of the other magnets already at the bottom.

Squeeze a thin layer of hot glue over the top of the magnets to keep them in place.

Hot glue the plug into place and immediately press the mount firmly onto a flat surface to ensure the plug is flush. Clean off any extra glue.

Stick the double-sided tape to the back side and trim to size. A razor blade will help you trim a perfect circle.

Stick your new knife mount anywhere handy.
