I recommend the magnetic strip. Most of our knives are in the drawer or knife block, but everyone in the house knows that the four knives on the magnetic wall mount are mine (3 chef's knives and a cleaver). Those knives never go in the dishwasher, they don't get dropped in the sink. They get hand washed and put back on the strip. It helps that I've got the strip in a corner over the sink, so they're hard for everyone else in the house to reach. (I'm 7" taller than my wife.)
