As I’ve told you before, I love my super sharp kitchen knives and they have me so spoiled that whenever I travel away from home and need to prepare food, I end up struggling with whatever knives are available because they are always dull. Whether it’s vacation, camping, or just visiting friends, I always end up wishing I’d brought at least one of my knives with me, but I never could find a practical and safe way to do so.
So I was delighted when Jo gave me some new Wüsthof knife guards for my birthday (which was yesterday, yay!). They are available in a variety of sizes (and in white) and they totally do the trick! The sturdy plastic sleeves slip securely onto the knife blade and don’t slide off. I am amazed at how well they hold on and how secure they feel. The sharp point and blade are completely covered, safe, and ready for travel.
By the way, these guards are also great if you store your knives in a kitchen drawer. Rather than risk losing a finger every time you reach in there to find a utensil, get a couple of these guards for your knives and then root around without fear. I personally use wall-mounted magnetic knife bar for most of my knives at home, but my good carving knife is in a drawer and is now protected with one of these guards.
