Designing knife roll bags & material protection - opinion needed

    We're preparing to introduce knife roll bags, we found an amazing and really heavy cotton from Osaka with kamon symbols and The Great Wave. These would be cheaper than leather bags and obviously much lighter.
    We plan two models:
    Project 1. Created by our client, Italian chef, Davide - a foldable bag, doesn’t look very handy because there are no pockets, but only a string. However, Davide did it by himself because the ordinary knife bag with pockets did not accommodate his Deba knives’ collection etc. There is 25 cm of loose fabric on the side to cover the knives, so that they don’t touch each other.
    Project 2. Something very similar to the existing knife roll bas with pockets and a small space between them, slightly modified by us - so that a person can accommodate knives up to 30 cm length.
    And questions to you:
    1. Which model do you prefer and why? What would you change?

    It would need to have some protection, either on the knives themselves or sewed in.
    There are few ways to do it:
    1. Sew in aramid fabric which is super durable and knives can't cut through so easily
    2. Attach high quality foam (nicely decorated in kamon) so user can just cut though it, slip the knife in and put it in the pocket
    3. Attach balsa wood board and create a really simple DYI tutorial, so users can do their own saya in a few minutes.

    What solution do you think would be best?
    Thanks for your help!
