    Some of us have more knives than we can EDC at any given time. How do you store the ones not on your person?

    I got this machinist's chest (Home Depot)

    I've been looking at something like this for a long time now. Just not sure I want to spend that much. I'm contemplating building something of my own.

    This chest was about $100 plus shipping from Ebay,, the 'real' ones in whole wood is 10 to 20 times as much

    Too many unless I had a few chests. I use large plastic storage bins labeled Folders, Fixed and Auto. Each has their own sheath and a label on the outside of the folders and autos describing the knife so I can grab one.

    At the beginning of my collection I had these two showcases:

    They became too small at some point, so I built myself a bigger showcase:

    That too became too small sometime. Then I built many small drawers for a simple shelf module:

    Here I tried to present some of these drawers nicely:

    I like the idea of those machinists' tool boxes also. Yours looks like you need more than one for your collection! :). Although maybe if you weren't also storing the boxes in the chest it would help? Just sayin'...;)

    L'chaim!

    Looks to me like your knife hobby has in fact enabled a second hobby: cabinet making! More power and kudos to you!

    L'chaim!

    I use the sort of plastic boxes with movable dividers sold for storing fishing tackle. You can also find similar in the hardware section of many 'big box' hardware stores. The nice thing about the ones sold for fishing tackle is that (or it is claimed that!) these are affording some protection against rust/corrosion... assuming it to be true (I haven't tested them for this as I'd buy the boxes anyway! :) ), I can see how salt water fishing tackle like some knife blades, should be protected from rust! These boxes are not very expensive at Walmart and they work for me.

    L'chaim!

    A wicker basket thingy I got on a Black Friday years ago. It’s totally falling apart but I can’t part with it just yet.

    I sewed a few of these from heavy cotton. Protects the knives well and is easily transported. Not good for displaying. [​IMG]
