In terms of the fabric used, both boast of a fabric thickness of 600D. And while Chef Sac is a polyester bag, Messermeister is made from nylon.
Nylon is generally more expensive and quite stronger than polyester but this beast of a fabric is just as resistant to stretching, shrinking, and abrasion as nylon.
Both feature a claspable strap that lets the user wear them as a shoulder bag if they desired. Messereister offers more color options with its 8 variations. Chef Sac has 5 Roll Bag variants.

While the Chef Sac utilizes individual straps to keep the blades in place, Messermeister uses a zippered full cover.
