Such a perfectly simple way to build a cheap knife-rack and you can size it to fit anywhere on any counter top.Plan the size you wish. You can have the lumber pieces sawed to size at Lowe's or Home Depot cheaply. Consider the length of the skewers in your plan when determining height then buy enough of them to fill up the 'box'. Any knife you own can be inserted in it so easily. Never a worry about blades getting dull. I'd say it's pretty much a perfect design.

Re-use empty thread spools. Fasten a row of them jammed shoulder to shoulder inside a kitchen cabinet door and you've got yourself an instant knife holder. The handles of the cutting tools will rest on the spools while the implements' blade fits through the gaps between each set of the wooden rollers. Attach the spools to the cabinet door with both screws (through each roller's center) and glue (on the base of the discarded thread holders) for safety.

I have three knives. I only use one but for times when I need all three, I did this today. Reaching in a drawer, I almost cut myself so this was the day to do this project.
I needed a safe and readily available storage spot for a kitchen knife with a 6 1/2-inch blade. All the slots on my wood knife block were full.
