The Messermeister 3" Garnishing Edge-Guard is an ideal fit for garnishing knives 3" in length or less. The exact dimensions are 3.25" long by 0.5" wide. Messermeister invented the hard plastic Edge-Guard and it is available in various widths and lengths. Edge-Guards by Messermeister have been recognized as not only the original edge protectors, but by far, the finest quality and the most functional. If your knives are not stored in a block or you carry them around in knife luggage, edge guards are a must for the knives you want to take care of. Not dishwasher safe.
