If cooking is an art then knives are essential tools to create this art and therefore it is very important to care for and protect the knives.
Whether you are storing knives in your kitchen taking them to a catering event or simply carrying them to school, they need to be in place, held firmly away from each other with a layer of protection around their blades.
A good knife roll provides you firm yet flexible storage option for a variety of tools such as :
How to find a Knife Roll that’s perfect for you?
- Size and Capacity:
Think not only of the knives and tools that you carry but also of some you are likely to add in the near future. Keep in consideration the length of the longest knife that you want to store in the knife roll, and shape of the grip. KRC knife rolls come with a mix of knife holders, half of them in firm leather that are good to hold the regular knives and then the other half are a stretchable holder able to extend as is needed to hold the extra large or any (if I may say) irregular shaped grip.
- Storage Options / Accessories:
Don’t forget all the other important tools that make up your gear – a tweezer or a meat thermometer. Not all of it may need a slot to be held in place, some could just snug comfortably into a loosely held suede leather pouch or a zippered pocket.
- Knife Protection:
A good knife roll will hold the knives in place and keep the blades separated enough not to cut-at each other. All KRC knife rolls come with blade protectors for an extra level of protection. These universal sized set of 10 blade protectors are designed to wrap around the blades. KRC offers a wide collection of blade protectors allowing you to mix and match a set to your knife collection.
- Ease of use & Carry:
A knife roll is protection, convenience and style all rolled into one. The slots should be deep enough to hold the knives in place, and easy enough to slide them in and out.
A detachable and adjustable shoulder strap is a convenient feature to have. There are pockets where you will want buttons and others that look and work perfect when closed with a zipper.
Special attention must be paid to the fittings as a knife roll like any other bag is just as strong as its buckle or zipper. Make sure the zippers are all metal and clips and buttons high grade.
Take a close look at all of these:
- Snap buttons
- Hook and loop fasteners
A good knife bag is an investment.
The price on most rolls will vary depending on the:
- Number of knives it can carry.
- Material used
- Number of usable compartments.
- Style of the bag
- Since this is something you will use to protect your most valuable tools, do not skimp on quality
Even if it costs you more in the beginning, the investment will pay off in the long run.
