Hmmm. Using either Safari or Chrome I can not get the "Products" pages to load. And the home page of site is extremely slow to load.

Rgds,

I've occasionally thought back to this thread on sleeves for knives I/we have sharpened and are returning.

I came across this guy in Vancouver, WA. www.patronsaintofknives.com/

I hadn't before seen his solution for protecting blades from people and vice versa! B)

In the top most video, (Patron Saint of Knives Knife Sharpening 101) his sharpening looks OK but skip ahead to about 8:15 to see him clean the blade and package it for shipping.

Looks like an inexpensive, safe & clever way to protect that I hadn't seen yet.

Weird... It says that the video isn't available for my country (on my phone)? I'll check this later :-) thanks Gib!

The "Patron" seems like a nice enough guy, but really there was no magic there?
I personally am not sure about wrapping the knife in plastic wrap? Now the person has to get it off without cutting themselves? I like the sleeves that Tuffy introduced us too. Plus I know that most of my customers have remarked they like having the sleeves for storage in the utensil drawer among other storage needs. It is a nice touch. Everyone has asked for them when we have a second go round with more knives.
I have had several people remark " wow professional"! B)

All are important and valid points... especially in the era of recycle and reuse. A good reminder... thanks.

About the plastic? Any other thoughts about what touches the blades? I questioned the plastic wrap but I also question masking & painters tape, too but see them used. And, I really don't know the impact on the blade itself by the sleeves. (And you mention the simple safety to end-users.) (I do like the guy says, "accepts no liability for the use, misuse or injury caused by the extremely sharp edges he produces.")
