New culinary student looking for a knife bag...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I'm a student at The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, majoring in baking/pastry arts. I recently received my equipment. I have all the equipment possible. But they gave us a dinky tool box, that barely fits everything. It's also one un-organized mess. By the way, I'm kinda OCD about being organized.

My question is, which knife bag should I get? I went to Kitchen Kapers and saw that Wusthof makes a Knife Suitcase for 100 bucks...it's fairly nice, and has significantly larger volume than the tool box.


Does anyone have any other recommendations?

CH? I'm not sure what that is....but The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College is in Philadelphia.


I bought a Husky tool box...because it's a lot bigger then the current tool box the school gave us students to use.

I guess I had assumed you were the same student in this thread since you are attending the same school and joined Chef Talk the same day I suggested that poster come here. In either even best of luck with school! ;)

OH! CH stands for ChowHound....! Yeah, IllPastries was me...I didn't realize what you meant by that.

BTW, I bought that Wusthof bag, hated it, returned it, and bought a Husky Toolbox from Home Depot for 12 bucks.

I purchased a Craftsman toolbox at Kmart last spring for my summer job. It worked great and held all my tools except knives. For knives I used an old canvas knife roll. I didn't need the knife roll once I was at work since I stored them on a magnetized knife bar. I used the toolbox to store separate my personal tools from those owned by the camp.

Here's a link to a picture of the toolbox.

I'm glad you got squared away. My box is very similar to what seabeecook is using.
Best of luck with school!

I go to TRS also but I'm in culinary. When I first went there I got tired of my tool box the first day I took it home. There's a place called Fante's Kitchen and it's on 1006 S. 9th street. They have knife bags that fit everything in your toolbox in it. Take your school id to get 10% off. The knife bag is like $70.
