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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.

They serve the purpose, but they're not felt lined and they're nothing particularly specialPublished 22 days ago by Ryan Clare
These work well. Replaced some cardboard ones I had that were wearing out. These will probably last a lifetime.Published 1 month ago by Tess A.
