Another simple and relatively inexpensive tool drew me in on social media this month – a magnet in the place of a knife sheath submitted by Kat Johnson, the Produce Manager at Fields Edge Farm in Floyd, Virginia.

In Kat’s post she wrote, “Ever since Victorinox stopped making the removable inserts in their sheaths it’s been impossible to keep the sheath clean or anywhere close to sanitary, this eliminates that problem, but keeps your harvest knife right by your side during harvest.” That was pretty much the same reason I gave up the lettuce knife and the truth is that even though you can run the Morakniv sheath through the dishwasher, it still gets a bit gunked up.
