3.0 out of 5 stars Design needs improvement, 11 Aug 2013
This review is from: Global Knife Blade Guard - Size 1 (Kitchen & Home)
I think these cases are a brilliant idea and they did efficiently protect our Global knives which we use constantly. However in my experience they don't last. I don't know whether mine are from an unlucky batch, but all three need replacing after only about a year of use. What happened is the plastic casing has shrunk over time ( no we don't wash them). This means the magnetic lining has slowly loosened and gradually detached away from the casing so you can't open and close them easily any more. It's a shame really because they were so good to start with and are horrible now with the adhesive exposed and sticky. One of the spines has broken and the plastic is warped. I am writing to the manufacturer today to let them know. I will update this post if I hear anything further. UPDATE 27th August 2013 I returned the guards to the head office in Cardiff and they promptly replaced them. However, out of three, two of these brand new never used guards are already separating in the same way: the plastic case separating from the magnetic strip. I suppose it's just one of those things: deterioration will be inevitable.
