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 that big of a deal, really. I just wonder if they did that just to get around a patent.. Who knows.

VERDICT:
Unless you *really* have to have black or blue edge guards, go with the Ultimate Edge brand edge guards which are more secure and easier to use.

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 knives that are not in a block.

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.

Recommended.

I had been looking all over for some knife guards and I'm glad I found these. I wanted the kind that you could just slide the knife into and out of, but all the ones I saw in stores were the kind that lock the knife in. Didn't want that.
I really just wanted *one* for my big Santoku knife, but I saw this 4-pack at a good price, so I got them. Glad I did. My 10-inch Santoku fits the wide one and I use the two smaller ones for long paring knives. The longest one holds a bread knife.
I sort of wish the inside of the "guard" was soft, but I don't know if that's even necessary for the protection of the knife. The guards are hard plastic inside and out, but my knives slide in and out of them easily. I'm very satisfied.
UPDATE: Just ordered a set for my sister-in-law for Christmas because she was admiring mine at Thanksgiving!

I purchased the red one a year ago from my work for my new santoku, but it didn't fit so I just used it for my knife at home in the drawer and it was perfect! I recently bought a knife case, a 7" Shun asian chefs knife, a 7" Victorinox swiss army boning knife and a paring knife for work. The red fits my shun, green on my boning and the blue is on my paring. They look really good, but its hard for me to get them out of my knife case without them sliding off, and if you have ever been sliced by a brand new Shun or Victorinox, you know it does not feel good at all.

Summary of this review: great for the home cook who keeps their knives in a drawer, not good for keeping them in a knife roll.

I bought these to go on my Messermeister Meridian Elite knives. Let's just say that two of them broke in half down the seam, and it screwed up the tip on one of the knives because it would not stay secure on one of Messermeister's own knives. Now I have to go out of my way to send my knives back to get repaired because the tip got bent. I went to my local knife shop and got cheaper Mundial knife covers that are higher quality. I have been very disappointed with my Messermeister experience in general.

These guards are good for the price. I use them in coordination with my knife storage roll. They don't fit my 10 inch chefs knife the best but it does the trick. However, they do fit the others nice and serves its purpose for the price.
