Why not look for a mounted knife rack you can place on one of your walls? This way, your knives take only a slim amount of space and you do your counter the favor of having one less on-counter storage unit.

You can even considering a drawer-type waste bin in your island for when you prepare a lot of your food there, or have a surface on the counter where you can drop the items you need to discard right into the removable waste bin underneath.
