The one tip I use to this day...while using a knife block, insert the serrated knives in upside down so that the sharp/serrated edge is facing the ceiling. See the photos below.

I'm glad we listened to my wise Aunt Shelley and registered for
"really nice knives"
|See knife is right-side up|
|Serrated edge up, keeps them from digging into the wood.|
Another thing we do to protect the integrity of the knife set - keep them OUT of the dishwasher. This dulls them, so handwash them, dry them and insert them right-side-up in the wood block.
Happy Knife...Happy Life...well, not exactly, but you get the idea!
