Anybody know where I can find these in either Toronto or NYC?

in NYC, I've checked JB Prince, Bowery Kitchens and Broadway Panhandler. They don't have em.

In Toronto, i've checked Nella, Dinetz, Tap Phong, nope!

        yup, but I prefer to pick it up somewhere in person, either in Toronto or NYC. I will resort to online ordering if both of these options are exhausted.

              Check restaurant supply places. Dexter makes some and at San Diego Restaurant Supply they are about this cheap.


              They are felt lined and the plastic is very soft on edges at half the cost of "name" brands like Wusthof or Messermeister.

                If you're looking for knives sheath, go to St. Lawrence Market, top floor. I bought my knives sheath there. 12" for 15 bucks, 4" for 9 bucks and if you're a culinary student, they give you 10% off. They have magnetic cover, plastic cover and wustshof blade cover.

                  I just went w/ plastic slip guards that can be found at most professional kitchen supply stores around the city. If you're looking for the best, there is no exception, go w/ sayas from Tosho.

                  I have a Konosuke saya for one of my knives, fits decent. No pre-fab saya will come close to a custom though.

              DIY? Magnetic sheets are a craft store staple. That's all I see in a product that looks like a HS Junior Achievement project.

                It looks like they are exclusively through Victorinox. So, in theory any RH Victorinox dealer could order these for you, assuming there is one close to you: http://www.swissarmy.com/us/content/s...
