    Might try putting a bit of painters tape on the blade face just below the spine, down to the edge to protect against scratching any of the face unnecessarily.

    i meant to say perpendicular, not parallel (the knife should make a T with the pad). morning meetings on the day after New Years sucks out my brain power.

    If it is is a wa handled kife without a seriously visible machi, how do you plan to deal with the ugly transition up where the blade meets the handle?

    If you can't take the handle off, it's gonna be a little ugly but a little tape goes a long way.
