Eyeglasses Pouch For Kitchen Knife Holder

I needed a safe and readily available storage spot for a kitchen knife with a 6 1/2-inch blade. All the slots on my wood knife block were full. I used a padded eyeglass pouch-type case/holder and glued it to the side of the knife block. It was a perfect fit on the knife block. The padding inside the pouch kept the sharp knife blade protected plus it did not take up that much space.

Do not glue the entire case/holder onto the block. Keep in mind to allow for expansion once the knife is inserted when gluing the eyeglass holder to the knife block. I used ordinary craft glue. I could also glue these type eyeglass cases/holders on the top and the other side of the block if I ever need more storage for more small kitchen knives.

These are the eyeglass cases/holders that most eye doctors give you when you purchase eyeglasses. For safety sake, make sure the knife blade is completely inside the eyeglass case. The case can be removed if you use ordinary craft glue that is not water-proof.

I also use these type eyeglass holders for other items. I have one in my purse to hold store receipts. I keep one in my car to hold pencils and paper. I use one that I glued to the side of our desk for holding a pen and 'scratch' paper for notes. You could also glue magnets on these to use on a refrigerator or other metal surfaces to hold various items.

There are many uses for these eyeglass cases/holders. You have to think 'outside the box' and you will be surprised at what other uses and ideas you will have for using these besides holding eyeglasses.

I recently obtained a rather large and colorful leather eyeglass case with no closure (my glasses were way too small for the case and would slip out easily) but I accepted it, not knowing how I would actually use it. Turned out to be a classy "cozy" and the perfect size for my LG phone... so the glasses lost out on this one!

I think it would work fine if it were kept out of sight in a drawer. These kind of remedies eventually make your home look tacky.
