I have a 8"x610' roll of Edge
I just store it inside the brown wrapper it comes in and then inside the box for a bit of extra protection.
I use a cheaper Dahle roller cutter and don't use gloves. If you can deal with gloves it's probably a good idea although I have had no discernible problems handling the cut sheets bare handed.
I haven't had to deal with any curl yet but it gets worse as you get closer to the center of the roll.
