I am a culinary student and I have a knife kit that has quite a few knives. After a few close calls almost cutting myself as I removed items from the kit. I had a different style knife guard on my chef's knife(which is special to me) to keep it from getting damaged but it was a large clear shell that was simply too bulky and expensive to outfit my entire kit with. I found these and decided to give them a try. I am really pleased, they fit my knives very well with no excess bulk or weight. They also are quick to remove but still secure enough to stay on in transport. I was concerned that they would not stay in place on my thinner Japanese knives but they are secure even on my usuba. I have range of knives from different manufacturers (shun, henckels, and mercer) and they fit the same on all different styles of knives.
I have no complaints at this point. They do what they are meant to do without excess bulk and at a reasonable price. Highly recommended for anyone with kitchen...
I had bought some Ultimate Edge knife guards and decided I needed more. I saw these instead and got them, since I wanted black ones also.
These work okay, but I noticed that they weren't very secure on thinner knives, including a nikiri and santoku. They moved with relative ease, which isn't what you want in a knife guard. You want the edge guard to have a nice secure grip on the blade. The Messermeisters unfortunately have a slightly larger gap than the Ultimate Edge edge guards.
Another thing I found was that it required a bit more attention to install on the knife. While the Ultimate Edge edge guards have slightly flared openings, these Messermeisters are straight with notched the corners on one side. It's very hard to see in the photo since it's black. But zoom in and you'll see it. The problem is that more often then not you catch your blade on the square corner when trying to slide it into the edge guard. It's a bit annoying sometimes. But it's not...
These are very serviceable edge protectors - they're relatively inexpensive, fairly sturdy, notched at the heel-end for easy insertion, and hold onto their blades fairly snugly. I use them for all the assorted loose knives in my blade drawer, to protect both the blades and also the hands of those who reach within. I also use them when packing knives in my knife bag, as they help protect the fabric of the latter.
Minor nits: I wish the manufacturer also made these in 12" and 14" sizes, as I have several slicing knives (bread, meat and lox) in that range ... for which covers are a bit hard to find.
