  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product - especially for a city apt In picking out some gorgeous Shun knives we realized we needed a way to store them. Given we live in a city with limited counter space we decided a knife block was not an option. These knife guards are a life saver. They protect our gorgeous new collection of Shun knives and allow us to keep all our counter space. We ordered 2 sets of 4 and everything arrived in perfect order. I would highly recommend we use them every day and have not had a single issue. Bonus the plastic seems thick so I do not worry about the knife cutting through it and cutting my hand when I slide the blade in.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I only received 3 These knife guards are okay. Not great, but they do work. Kind of awkward getting very sharp knives inserted as the guard is plastic and open down one side. I am always fearful that my very sharp knives will slice my finger as I am trying to insert into the guard. I ended up putting my fav knives in my knife block and my "less favorite" were removed from the block and put in the guards. Also, I only received 3 of the guards instead of the 4 advertised.
