If you have a knife block and keep your knives in their slots, one simple way to keep the knives from resting on their blades and dulling as you slide them in and out is to turn them over and store them with the blade facing up.
It's a simple kitchen tip, but it's one that can keep your knives from dulling as you take them out of the knife block or put them back when you're finished using them. It also keeps the knives from resting in the block on their points or on their blades. Granted, if you get a magnetic knife rack, you can store your knives without worrying about the blades at all, but this is an easy way to keep using your knife block and prolong the life of your knives between proper honing or sharpening.
