    The cardboard cover for my 270mm mac pro gyuto is pretty beat up and im looking for an aftermarket cover. For most my other knives, i use plastic covers from chefknivestogo, but they aren't wide enough to clamp onto the spine near the bolster and the knife is too thin for it to clamp securely on the gyuto without reaching the spine. Any suggestions?

    I'm a big fan of felt lined covers. I had even a stainless knife in a plastic cover rust on me. It was dry, but those.things retain moisture even from the air cause they don't breathe.

    Korin has felt lined edge.guards for a good price if you combine shipping with other stuff. Theres a 10% industry discount too. Its cheaper than what I found on amazon.

    I just see plastic covers that mention felt nowhere and wooden sayas that they strongly recommend you taking your knife to the store to ensure a proper fit for.

    Yep the plastic ones. They are felt lined. The amazon link had a better description.

    It's comparable to the wusthof ones but less than half the price
