Less Expensive or DIY Version of the Magneto Knife Rack?

Good Questions

Q: I've recently decided to move my knives from a drawer to some sort of magnetic strip on the wall or under a cabinet. In an exhaustive internet search for the best solution, I came across the Magneto knife rack from Eva Solo. Isn't it fantastic? I love that the blade edges are not openly exposed, and it seems like the ergonomics for removing and replacing the knives are better than the standard flat magnetic bar. I have to admit that although it costs 3 to 4 times as much as I was planning to spend, I am sorely tempted.

My question to The Kitchn is: Has anyone seen an affordable version of this knife rack? Or does anyone have a crafty idea as to how a moderately handy person could make her own?
