Chef Knife Sheath

We’re going on a weekend trip to the beach and we always bring our own cooking utensils because we never like the utensils at the AirBnB’s. Before the GF, I always made a makeshift cardboard knife sheath. Inevitably, it would always get lost or damaged and I had to make another one so that I could safely transport it. Not this time.

Steps:
-Took a picture of the knife
-Imported picture into Fusion 360
-Calibrated image to knife dimensions
-Traced profile of knife
-Exported SVG using Shaper plug-in

There’s 3 layers to the knife two outer sheaths and a center layer to create a space for the knife. I added a notch at the top of the sheath so that I could hook a rubber band to keep the knife from sliding out.

Great job, I plan on making timber “sayas” in a similar way when my GF eventually arrives. I’m in Australia and the wait just got extended again. Still hanging in for it.

Cool! Is that acrylic? Would be great in leather as well.

It is acrylic. I had not considered leather.

polypropylene would be a good choice also, will not dull the blades. Great Design and clever latch.

Score a hit in the “well done” category. Good job.
