attach a few string loops to a sheath, you can wear it nearly everywhere.
Of course you can make or buy special sheaths, for example to wear them on the back like a cowboy and draw from behind your neck. Instructions for such a harness can be found at thrower. I have not been able to find the right size of tubular webbing used there, but made a similar construction out of leather and rubber bands (to retain the knife). The result was not really satisfying, it takes long to put the knife back into the sheath.
Keep it clean! It is sufficient to scrub the throwing knife with a wet washcloth (or old lump) to get rid of dirt stains. Then rinse it with water, and dry it. It must be really totally dry! Then store it somewhere safe and dry. If you do this routine after every training session/day, even non stainless knives will not rust.
If you really want to pamper your knife, coat it with Ballistol, a versatile protective oil. (Where I live, it is available in every weapons store.) Rub it off the next day, or the knives will be slippery. You might also try one of those high tec fluids.
If your knife caught a dent, you can easily repair it with the help of a file. Be sure to fix it appropriately before going to work. As you do not need a real sharp point on the blade, you can even do some repair work here. If the knife is bent from throwing, simply place it across two bricks and stand on it till it is straight again.
