Good knives should be hand washed, dried, and kept in a knife rack
rather than in a drawer.
A knife rack insures that the sharp edges do not come in contact with
If you don't have a rack, you now have a reason to build one.
As far as a dishwasher is concerned, ask yourself a question.

If the answer is "no", then why would you abuse your kitchen knives?
