The holes are too small for most knitting needles. I had to cut the biggest whole with scissors to make my 5mm needles fit. Other than that its fantastic! Its very sturdy and doesn't slide around your waist

The quality of the notebook cover was just what I was looking for! I do wish the letters were much smaller, but it was as good as I expected. The seller was able to accommodate my special request for an extra letter, and I'm grateful for that! A photo update would have been appreciated mid-process to show me the difference between my 6 letter and 7 letter options. I loved the cloth packaging, it was a very nice touch! Overall, I'm excited about the final product and cant wait to hand it over to my boyfriend!

My husband has been a chef for over 20 years. This is by far the best knife roll he’s ever owned. He knew I was getting him a new roll for his birthday, but he was so impressed when he opened his gift and looked it over. His knives include a very long scimitar for butchering and an 11” chef knife. Every single one fit into this kit, and the zippered pouch holds all his miscellaneous peelers, cake tester, etc. He’s been using it now for 3 months and loves it. Shipping was super fast - I procrastinated and only ordered a week before his birthday, so I assumed he’d get it after. Instead it arrived 5 days after ordering.

Proper storage and care for your knives is the whole story of these knife rolls.
It's just one of the reasons these knife rolls are lined. I will never make a knife roll where the leather comes in contact with your knives, nice looking as they are. That said, I make all of the goods here and all of the leather comes from U.S. tanneries. Your knives deserve the caution. Please read and see the comments on this link from leather crafters.
"leathers tanned in non-commercial settings and tannages from less developed countries that don't follow modern tanning processes. The reason for this is that "you just don't know what these guys are doing, there's some, uh, pretty funky stuff out there. I mean chemically its all backwards, but it works somehow."
"Any corrosion risk comes from storing the gun/knife/etc. in leather-- the leather absorbs moisture from the surrounding air and creates a damp environment. Damp environments and metals don't mix."
Veg tanned leather sheaths are okay if you use a knife extensively, but for long term storage choose a natural(unbleached) cardboard sheath or if you live in a very humid area, a heavy plastic bag with no holes and a desiccant (silica packet) and a small amount of oil on the blade only to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming.

This is mostly about folding knives but the care tips are not any less relevant:
How I got here:
It all started when my son was 4, or maybe 3 and he wanted to cook eggs. He did and then he graduated Culinary School. I know, big gap there, but he designed a knife roll he wanted me to make, I did and I was off and running. It was more than a little different than the current one.
The current knife roll is the result of a couple years of learning about the best way to store knives so they have the least tendency to rust or corrode. About how Leather and Ballistic Nylon behave, age and how one complements the other so they stay in shape. How to sew on an industrial machine, about pattern making and then sewing prototypes that were tested by chefs. Many failed and this one succeeded, really well. It keeps knives secure, dry and convenient.
I have been designing and creating my whole life, making anything has always been my calling, sewing is just one of my outlets but probably my favorite.
I feel these cases chose me and I love making cases and bags that are practical, appealing and will last a lifetime.
