Types Of Chef-Grade Knife Rolls
Brickwalls and Barricades offers 3 types of knife storage:
- small leather knife rolls which you can put in your drawer for at home storage
- large leather and canvas knife bags for transporting your knives and other chef tools where ever you go.
- leather blade guards to protect the blades of you knives while in your drawer or even inside of your knife bag. This will not only protect the knives, but also you knife roll. Our selection of leather bladeguards you can find here
- Leather: Leather knife rolls are typically more expensive than canvas, but they're also more durable. Leather is a natural material that is resistant to wear and tear, and it will age well over time. A perfect example of the ultimate black leather knife roll is our classic knife roll with 12 sloths which you can find here
- Canvas: Canvas knife rolls are less expensive than leather, but they're not as durable. Canvas is a synthetic material that can be damaged more easily, so it's important to be careful with it. Our best canvas knife roll with leather straps can be found here in khaki green, and here in brown.
Why Choose Leather?
If you're looking for a knife roll that is both durable and stylish, leather is the way to go. Leather knife rolls are made from natural materials, so they're resistant to wear and tear. They're also easy to care for - simply wipe them down with a damp cloth when they get dirty. Leather knife rolls will age well over time, so they're a great investment. Brickwalls and barricades is the leading supplier of premium quality leather knife rolls, so you are right where you need to be ;)
How to Choose the Right Knife Roll
When you're choosing a knife roll, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- The number of knives you need to store. If you only have a few knives, you may not need a large knife roll. But if you have a lot of knives, you'll need a roll that has enough slots to accommodate them all.
- The size of your knives. Some knife rolls have slots that are only big enough to hold smaller knives, while others have slots that can accommodate larger knives. Make sure to choose a roll that will fit all of your knives.
- The type of knives you have. If you have a lot of expensive and/or delicate knives, you'll want to choose a roll that offers protection against damage. Leather and canvas are both good materials for this.
- The materials you prefer. Do you prefer leather or canvas? Both materials have their own benefits, so it's up to you to decide which one is right for you.
- Your budget. Knife rolls can range in price from around $20 to $200. But a leather knife roll will typically cost more than a canvas one. So, if you're looking for quality, the leather may be the way to go.
How to Care for Your Knife Roll
Once you've chosen the perfect knife roll, it's important to care for it properly. Here are a few tips:
- Wipe down your roll with a damp cloth regularly. This will help to keep it clean and free of dirt and debris. Even if you don't use your roll often, it's still a good idea to wipe it down every so often.
- If your roll is made of leather, condition it regularly. This will help to keep the leather soft and supple.
- Store your roll in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing it in direct sunlight or in a humid environment.
- If you're not using your roll, keep it stored in a safe place. This will help to protect it from damage.
Chef-grade knife rolls are a great way to store and transport your knives. They're durable, stylish, and easy to care for. So, if you're looking for the perfect way to keep your knives organized, a knife roll is the way to go.
