    Edge Protectors

    Hey all,
    I was just wondering if anyone out there knows where to get disposable edge protectors in volume. Needed for sharpening service when returning the knive to owner.

    THANK YOU,
    PZ

    Hmm wonder if some cheap flexible tubing would work. The stuff like at home depot in the sink area. Im pretty sure you could pick up some 1/2' or somethign fairly cheap.

    I just use a piece of cardboard folded in half and taped onto the blade.

    Pabloz, a while ago I made a few dozen for a knife maker in my area out of thin Kydex. It doesn't take dong, its easy and if you have a good source, its inexpensive if you have the time to spend on it.

    Bishopmaker & Michael,

    I'll give it a try. That could also be reusable.

    Tinh,
    THANKS.....thats sort of what I'm doing now but when doing 40-50 blades a day that extra couple of minutes to cut, fold & tape takes it's toll. I was hoping to find some pre-folded or even better some sleeves that were pre-made so I have to do is cut it and tape. I also use the foam core mount board that I get as scrap from framing shops. I'm just trying to find something FASTER.

    You might check an office supply house.

    Holy crap! Yeah. I wouldn't want to have to cut that may out either.
