Mercer > Cangshan/Dexter/Mundial/Everpride
Reviewed in the United States on March 10, 2018
These are dramatically different and much better than Cangshan/Dexter/Mundial/Everpride knife guards. The latter weakly grips your knives and easily slide all off. Having owned Cangshan, Dexter, Mundial, and Everpride guards before there is nothing different between them. They are all generic. Yes, Mercer guards are slightly more expensive but that premium is well worth it. As for the felt lining, your knives don't care much about that and Mercer guards have a very similar feel putting the knife into the guard. Highly recommended.
For those with Misen knives, the chef's knife, serrated (bread) knife, and paring knife all fit well into these guards.
