Kitchen Knife Case 01, Shieldon

Easy processing with cork board! I made a light, durable, and fashionable case for camping knives. If you have a case on your kitchen knife, you can carry it safely. You can do it with scissors and a bond, so why not custom a nice home with your own blade?

Have you ever felt dangerous because you didn’t have a scabbard when you brought your knife to the camp?


This time, I tried to custom a kitchen knife case that can be easily made by myself using a commercially available cork board in order to avoid such danger.

If you have two knives in a cork case, a cutting board, and a vegetable knife, you can rest assured even if you have small children and it will be easy to carry. Also, since soft cork is the material, no force is required to make it.


It fits perfectly with any kitchen knife, and the cost is very cheap. It’s a really recommended self-made idea.

How to custom ③ I tried attaching a stopper

Cork is a non-slip material, so this alone is fine, but I thought about a device that would prevent the knife from slipping out of the case even if it was accidentally slanted.


Fasten the blade so that it does not come off

Case with kitchen knife and stopper A stopper is attached to prevent the case from coming off.


Use the cotton plain weave tape used for the handle of the bag and the hook-and-loop fastener. All of them are 100%, and you can get them at handicraft stores.

Glue the hook-and-loop fastener to the plain weave tape. If you stick it slightly inward from the end of the tape, it will be easier to pinch when turning the stopper.


Secure with clothespins until they stick together.

Bread knives, pizza cutters, pizzas, sandwiches vinyl covers of pizza cutters are easy to remove, and I was worried about going somewhere soon. I wanted a solid cover, so I made it the same way.

For pizza cutter, cut like this

Kitchen Knife Case 20, Shieldon

Unfolded view of the pizza cutter and case The cork cut to a width of 5 mm is soft, so you can stick it on a gentle curve, but if it is a circle, it will bend so tightly that it will crack, so cut out the cork according to the roundness of the pizza cutter and glue it. bottom.
