I have copied their idea of storing these types of tools in a glass with some (uncooked) rice. Keeps the tines safe, cleans off any grinds with every insertion, and stores the tool handle-side up:

I don't know if using a Kwak cork and 3D printer pins constitutes some sort of IP theft but I have a hard time believing that the handle and pin attachment on the Levercraft is really worth an extra $40. I like the feel of the cork. It's grippy and warm. And I sanded it flat on top so it is quite stable standing upside down, which is how it normally sits when I'm not using it. If I were to buy one from Levercraft I'd want the cork handle option, assuming they offered it. Even better if it came with a large bottle of Belgian ale.
