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?
Easy with cork! I made a case to carry a kitchen knife safely
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 ① Cut the cork board
Cut out in the shape of a kitchen knife
Prepare a kitchen knife, a cork board, and a red oil-based pen 2 mm thick cork board. Trace the shape of the knife blade and draw a cut line about 5 mm outward. Prepare two sheets, front and back.
You can get a cork board at a home improvement store for $1 per sheet.
Knife, scissors, cut cork board Cut with scissors along the cut line. In addition, cut out two 5 mm wide rods. This is the gusset.
Next, glue the gusset.
How to custom ② Glue
Glue a 5mm wide rod
Fasten the adhesive surface of the cork with a clothespin. Attach a bond to one of the parts, and attach a 5 mm wide rod while bending it along the edge. Hold it with clothespins until it is completely glued.
Glue another part
Fasten both adhesive surfaces with clothespins. Attach a bond on the adhered 5mm wide stick, and cover and paste the other part. Secure with clothespins.
Cork knife case, gusset part up It looks like this from the front. The knife blade fits in this gap.
Wait for the bond to dry, then finish.
Remove the adhesive surface
Cork knife case, sand the corners When they are completely attached, sand the corners to make them smooth.
If you are troublesome, you can omit it.
This is complete!
Cork knives case, knives, cutting board, vegetables in no time! If you do this, you can safely put it in your camping luggage.
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.
Adhesive hook-and-loop fastener to plain weave tape
Plain weave cotton tape, bond Cut the plain weave tape, apply a bond to both ends to prevent it from fraying, and let it dry.
Adhere the hook-and-loop fastener to the cotton tape with a bond Cut the hook-and-loop fastener and attach the bond to the back of the soft side (loop surface). The cloth sucks the bond, so add a little more.
Adhere the hook-and-loop fastener to the cotton tape and fasten it with a clothespin.
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.
Adhesive plain weave tape to the kitchen knife case
Adhere cotton tape to the kitchen knife case Attach plain weave tape to the cork case. Plenty of bonds.
Adhere the hook-and-loop fastener to the kitchen knife case Turn the cork case over and attach the harder side (hook surface) of the hook-and-loop fastener to the case. Bond a lot.
Clip the kitchen knife case and hook-and-loop fastener. Secure them until they are completely adhered. Wipe off any sticking out bonds.
If you can’t reach it with a clothespin, you can use a large clip.
With a cork knife case, two knives, and a wooden plate stopper, it is safer. You can decorate it with your favorite stickers and stickers. You can paint it.
I made a case besides a kitchen knife. Next, I will introduce an example.
Let’s make something other than a kitchen knife!
Also for pizza cutters and bread knives
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.
I also made a cover for a bread knife that is dangerous if it touches the jagged edges. A Daiso character sticker is attached so that you can tell what kind of knife it is.
For pizza cutter, cut like this
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.
