This Kai Blade Guard is the right size for narrower and longer knives, such as slicing knives or bread knives. The guard’s 1.5-inch width, 9.75-inch length, and Kai’s unique retention clip enables this guard to accommodate a range of longer, narrower knives. The easy-open/easy-close retention clip features a urethane band that stretches to accommodate these blades yet keeps the edge safely and securely covered.
To use the blade guard: make sure the guard is clean and free of debris (debris could scratch your knife). Then place the knife in the guard, sharp edge to the closed side. Attach the retention clip to the closed side of the guard. Finally, stretch the urethane band around and over the knife’s spine, hooking it on the front of the clip. The knife is now held securely within the blade guard for storage. The Kai Blade Guard’s translucent material makes it easy to see which knife is in the guard for quick identification, too. Now you can store your knife conveniently in a drawer, keeping your counter clear. Your cutlery, and your fingers, will be safer with the Kai Blade Guard.
