Hot or Not? Clear Knife Holders

We have seen a couple of clear glass or acrylic knife holders lately, and they intrigue us. We like being able to grab a knife with no guessing as to its blade, and yet we don't feel quite right about storing knives completely out in the open - like on a magnet strip.

These little holders of course have the potential to gather a lot of dust and grease. What do you think? Do you use one or something similar already? More info below on the two models above.
