I am a knife snob.

I spend ridiculous amounts of money on my knives and even more ridiculous amounts of money on sharpening equipment. I buy knives that are as hard as 66 on the Rockwell scale (they exist... Look them up) and sharpen them with hundreds of dollars of stones until I would not hesitate to shave my face with any of them.

One little problem: when knives are that good and that sharp, they have a tendency to cut through stuff you didn't mean to cut through. This includes BladeSafe, EdgeGuard and all other such blade protectors. When they don't cut through such protectors, there is still a tendency for either the protectors or the knives to be damaged because, regardless of which protective shells you use, the knives WILL move around inside of them. And with EdgeGuard type protectors, the knife will slip out of them very easily, especially the thin-bladed Japanese knives.

This one is different.

The magnetic strips -- both sides of this protector, which opens up like a butterfly, are magnetic. Either side will stick easily to the side of a knife fairly securely. Once closed and with both sides in place, the knife is very securely held by magnets that touch the entire sides of the blades, plus the little bits left over, where the magnets on the two sides hold to each other. This means that there will generally speaking be no movement whatsoever of the blade, so that I would not hesitate to stick the knife in my drawer or even backpack.

One other thing about the butterfly construction is that, wherever you you place the blade, the magnetic strips will hold it in place. This is unlike any other protectors, allowing you to leave plenty of clearance between the edge and the side of the protector.

While the idea of magnetic knife protectors seems like a good one, and they did stay on the knives well, there was a problem of the magnetic material attaching itself to the knife "permanently" in places. The magnetic material detached from the protector and was stuck to the knife. Not so much as magnetically stuck, but stuck on chemically. I had to scrape it off. Maybe if someone uses their knives really often and is repeatedly taking the protector off regularly, there wouldn't be a problem. I used them for my competition BBQ knives, and they sat unused over the winter for 5+ months, so when I went to take them out of their protectors this is when I discovered the problem.

I've had a set of these for some time now--meaning months and months--and mostly I like them. They certainly protect the blades very well, and never dislodge in the drawer. I also have Cutco paper covers, for comparison. Some of the Cutco paper covers are over 25 years old, and although stained, continue without other signs of wear. This may be due to the custom fit. The Cutco covers are also very easy to use, and don't take up any unnecessary space. I wish I could say the same for the Victorinox covers. Here are the drawbacks: yes, you must make certain your knife is completely dry before covering it and storing it, to prevent rust. I hand wash and dry, then leave the knife out to finish air drying, and now I'm finding I have a collection air drying on top of the microwave, which hardly ever get back into the drawer. Next, the magnets are very strong, and I'm finding them difficult to open, especially when no knife is in them. And last, I've had two of these that I didn't use for a long time sitting shut in the drawer. When I tried to pry them open, the plastic interior tore away, where it was glued to the backing, and I had to throw them away. I wish there were more purchase options, as I had to buy a complete set just to get the sizes I wanted. I've also wondered about the crease cracking, but so far that hasn't happened. Doesn't seem like there is a perfect blade protector (unless Cutco makes it for you!).

UPDATE:
I'm sorry to report that I've downgraded my review from 4 stars to 3. It's still a great product, from a performance perspective. Very few guards can hold a blade more securely. But unfortunately, the magnetic surface on several of my guards somehow softened and discolored my blades.

On one of the blades, it was user error (i.e., my fault!) as there was evidently some moisture inside the guard leading to rust (still not sure how that happened, as I dry my knives methodically and let them further air dry overnight before encasing them). But on the other two discolored blades, there was no sign of rust - just white splotches on the softened magnetic surface of the knife guards, and a whitish powdery substance on my blades that was tough to remove.

So I've decided it's just not worth the risk, and will be reverting back to plastic blade guards. I'm terribly sorry for anyone I misled with my prior review.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
I just got this set of four different-sized magnetic knife protectors. The concept is GREAT and works much better than the standard paper/plastic cover or even the Victorinox hard-plastic encasements (Victorinox Cutlery BladeSafe for 6-Inch to 8-Inch Knife Blades), which I also have. The protectors are easy to use and put on/off, and have more 'buffer' to accommodate multiple blade sizes than the other types of protectors. The knives feel super secure when encased in these protectors.

On the downside, the magnetic pieces are held together by flimsy plastic tape 'hinges' that aren't attached well (on my units, anyway), so they are loose and wrinkled and crinkle each time I open and close them.
