      Salut Alex. Je suis desolé parce que je suis tard.

      I made two similar rolls to organise my woodoworking chisels and spoke shaves, draw knives. I got a piece of leather and ended up hand stitching it and put rivets like on a pair of jeans. Like you, I like to be able to grab everything from my hand tool cabinet and bring it to my bench. It saves so much time having everything organised and at hand instead of going back and forth.

    Kevlar does not protect against stabs. That's why kevlar vests have sheets of titanium foil inside to be stab-proof. Strips from regular plastic would make more sense.

    I love your personality 😊 Excited and kiddish but in just the right amount so it's fun to watch and makes me happy 😁
    ps. I loooved that you translated the world's best mash for us btw! I made my first try and next time I gotta buy the right potatoes...hehe
    Ps2. I live in a what I consider a non-food country (Swiss), only potatoes, cheese (not even as good as Italian or French), and chocolate (not even as good as Belgian) so trust me your channel is really helping to up my cooking skills further! 😋😇 That's if I can even find the ingredience here😭😅

    My daughter is in her first semester of culinary school.
    The knife roll you used as inspiration is like the one she recieved for Christmas.
    If you could come visit her while you are in the USA. And visit her class.. that would make her year! Her chef also studied in France.

    You should look into designing a Saya for each knife. Prevents accidental cuts and the ever infuriating knife chips if you invest in a Japanese high carbon knife.

    Étant cuisinier et ayant eu plusieurs trousse à couteaux je peux dire que le premier truc qui cède dans une trousse à couteaux c'est l'endroit où il y a les pointes de couteaux donc ton renforcement au kevlar précisément à cet endroit fait de cette trousse une trousse qui résistera à l'épreuve du temps. Therefore i can only say very well done Sir.

    I suggest you protect your knife blades. Finding ideal sheaths can be problematic, especially for the Chinese Chef knife. So, here is what I recommend: Take scrap cardboard and fold it a couple times to make a sheath. Fold the end over (you may need to score it). Secure all of this with a generous wrapping of packaging tape. You can cut out notches to accommodate the bolster. Now you have an inexpensive sheath that can be disposed and remade as needed.

  • Matthias Letson-Maddux

    Chefs only carry the knives because only the knives are personal and expensive. We don't carry peelers and spatulas because they stay in the kitchen; either because they are cheap and semi disposable or because they are owned by the restaurant. Aside from the knives (and shears) we usually only have a wine key, because wine.

    Hi Alex.
    How do you put the knives in and out? I really don't want to sound stupid, but i don't get it, especially the 3 big knives on the left.
    They seem too big to slide them in and out and this is what irritates me so hard haha.
    But after all, I love it and i think i'm going to make one for myself. :)

    Keep up your work!

    I made the same thing for my bike tools, but I used a cut down reuseable shopping bag. Its amazing, because with the rolls I can pack my tools down into a small form factor, and take them in the car for every ride. If someones bike is creaking pre-ride, I can do anything up to a bottom bracket service or cassette change in the parking lot because I always have all my tools.

    Nice set up. I've been a catering chef for years, so I have my own EDC. And I always try to take it when I'll be cooking.
    My knife roll with my 6 most used knives, honing steel, a peeler, microplane, and mini offset spatula.
    Then I have an elastic grid organizer with my tongs, thermometer, fish spatula, scissors, and a few other things.
    Throw all that in my backpack with some towels, gloves, pens, markers, etc, and I'm ready to cook anywhere.
