NEW YORK-U.K.-based Bisbell is bringing its MagMates and Bisbell Pro lines of blade guards and knife racks to North America.


The company plans to pursue gourmet housewares stores (both independents and chains), department stores and catalogs, then possibly other channels, said spokeswoman Dominique Dobson. The company, which has been designing and producing flexible magnetic storage solutions since 1971, has shown the lines at regional gift shows in the United States this summer and plans to exhibit at the International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago next year, according to Dobson.


The full MagMates line, characterized by bold colors and modernist shapes, consists of three width sizes of blade guards: small, medium and large (length is adjustable by the user); wall-mounted knife pods that hold two knives each, available in blue, orange, pink, green, black and white; and 11.8-inch knife racks in the same colors as the knife pods.
