Types of Chef Knife Bags
There are several different types of chef knife bags on the market nowadays, the most popular being the knife roll bag. This bag is small and compact and perfect for beginners, who need to carry only a select number of knives.
Knife cases and carriers are larger in size and enable you to carry the standard set of knives, as well as any specialty knives you want to bring along. Often, they are designed much like a luggage case with a zipper that includes compartments with slots that are flipped like a book.
For those who are always on the go and need to carry much or all their essential kitchen utensils with them, there are even some professional chef backpacks on the market designed to hold all the knives you can carry, as well as any utensils you’ll need.
