    I'm a moving house on Friday, in the process of trying to pack up my kitchen I realise we have a lot of knives. No idea why we have so many. Anyway I'm not sure how to pack them I don't want to just stick them loose in a box in case while putting in or taking out of the box someone gets cut. I had thought to wrap them in plastic bags but won't they just cut the bag open? The ones in the block I had intended to leave in the block but I can't fit in my box. So any ingenious ideas for safely packing sharp knives?

    What about rolled in a few sheets of newspaper? Then taped shut

    Cover the edges and points with multiple layers of tape, or bundle them together and wrap them up with tape so they can be removed safely as a bunch.

    And write a warning on the box they're in too so you don't forget

    Tape, that's a really good idea, why didn't I think of that. Also anyone know where I can buy bubble wrap cheaply? I don't need a huge amount just enough to wrap my pictures in.

    People on eBay are selling them cheap.

    Might be worth a pop into a B&Q or something, see if you can scrounge any lying around

    Have you got any cardboard? Easiest way is to wrap a bit of cardboard round the blades of each of them.

    If that's too much hassle, put them in a plastic tub all together.

    I have a knife sleeve so I'd use that.
    But wrapping in newspaper should work fine, as long as the blades aren't getting all smashed up and blunted it doesn't really matter.
