If you don’t want someone else to pack your items and you have a lot of tools or kitchen knives to pack, you will need to be careful. Make sure you have appropriate packing supplies. Use bubble bags, stretch wraps, packing tape, and bundles. You will be needing a lot of these supplies. You can group your knives and sharp items by size and by sharpness. Bundle them and then use a lot of bubble bags to wrap the entire item until it is completely covered. Then you should secure it with the packing tape.

It is also suggested for packing knives that you tape them first and then wrap them into several layers of bubble bag. And repeat this for each of them.
