Mercer Knife Guards and Blocks

Mercer Knife Guards and Blocks

Place the blade of the knife on a flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed the visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never acceptable to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a cleared area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigid plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on a counter, offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall-mounted magnetic bar designed to hold knives firmly in place.

Overall User Rating: Mercer M33113P 8" x 2" Polypropylene Blade Guard ( 4.9 stars from 19 reviews )

    Bought for my Victorinox 8" chef knife. It's a perfect fit. I slide my knife into the guard and it stays put. No worries that it will slip off or if you grab it you will slice your hand. Best part is that it is quite reasonable.

    A great way to help save your knives. If you care for your knives like I do these are a must have. At this bargain price u can't go wrong!

    It is a sturdy construction of PVC that keeps my knife from sliding around and banging around my other tools my case. Does a great job of protecting my knife's edge and keeping it sharp after i've spent time sharpening it!

    I love everything Mercer makes and this is no exception, excellent value and well made. I bought 3 for each one of my mercer knives

    The Mercer M3311P 8" X 2' Poly Blade Guard is fantastic how well it works. I have two other sizes and they all work in the same fantastic fashion. Easy on and easy off, but do not slid off on there own. I will be ordering more of these with my next order with Websturant ( which is a great place to go for high quality, low cost kitchen tools and aids).


    I usually use BladeSafe clip on covers, but as far as guards go, this one is pretty decent. Much better than the old white mercer covers! Recommended.

    Solid price for a simple no-frills plastic blade guard--it clamps on securely, and does its job well. Save your fingers and your knife case, for just little cost

    I use these on the knives for workplace safety reasons. they fit nice and tight and they look good as well. for this price you cant go wrong.

    from Randys family restaurant Posted on

    I really like this blade guard; I used to have a clamshell type blade guard for my Victorinox 8" but it was kinda loose and didn't feel secure. This feels very tight and secure, it looks really nice and it takes up minimal space as well. 5 stars

    from Manchester Court Posted on

    I picked up two of these for the two knives I just ordered and they are great. They're nothing special, just basic knife guards, but for the price they are an excellent product and definitely worth getting even if you have a knife block.

    Perfect for protecting my Mercer Genisis knives. They fit snugly on the knives protecting them from being knocked together or dropped into the knife container (which causes the tips of the knives to break).

    from One Dish Cuisine Posted on

    A MUst Have so get it, keeps you from cutting yourself. I have seen quite of few cuts happen because of not having a guard on your knife, not good to see. be safe and get one

    Essential for traveling or storage in a small drawer. I like these covers for when I travel with my knives so the blades don't touch each other and damage.

    i love how cheep these edge guards are if you buy from amazon and buy a different brand there as much as 5X more money these fight tight to the blade and dont slip

    What a wonderful knife protector. I bought this cover for 7" cleaver and it fits fabulously. It's a great way to protect hands when going into the infamous (disorganized) utensil drawer! Thank you!

    Better than what i was expecting! I was expecting the thin flimsy plastic covers, but was surprised by the nice hefty pvc ones that grip nicely. These are a steal for the price and fit my 8" chefts, 7" santoku, and 8" slicer. If you find it too long you can trim them down with a saw.

    Here you can see how well the blade guards will cover the blades.

    Protects my beautiful knife. Without this I'm sure my blade with have some knicks and dings in it. But this guard has held up beautifully and doesn't fall of the knife.

    Considering the high cost of a good knife set, these protectors seem like a no brainer. This protector set comes at a great price and does a fine job!

    from The Pie Kitchen Posted on

    This is a great knife cover! It protects all sorts of knives from chef knives to serrated bread knives!! Great for using to travel with knives!!!
