    Does anyone save the box their knives come in? I have two recent purchases (119 and 110) that came in the box. I put the boxes on a shelf in my basement, but don't really see a need to save them. Both knives are meant as "working" knives, and neither one is a custom design. I could understand saving the box for a special release (e.g., 75th anniv.) or a custom knife, but not for your run of the mill popular model.

    I'm OCD and tend to keep so many boxes plus if you resale them and have those boxes it might help with the amount you can receive for the knife.

    A lot of opinions here.......but if you're young enough.......

    One thing to keep in mind is that some older boxes and papers, etc., are now worth as much or more than the knife that came in them.

    Thus if you have room to store them and keep them in great condition.......doing so could make you some money many years down the road.

    I bought a stack of old Winchester, S&W and Ruger boxes a few years ago for, I think it was four dollars and sold them off individually on e-Bay for a grand total of five to six hundred dollars.

    I’ve been saving the boxes but after a shelf full I’m wondering why. :D

    i unfold the boxes and store them flat in my sock drawer. they dont take up much space. i leave the receipt and paperwork in the box.

    American made knives and tools are special to me so I do keep the packaging for some reason.
    It is a good place to keep the receipt and paperwork for sure.
    Maybe I should make a collage and frame it o_O

    I keep ALL my knife boxes, not just Buck ones. So I now have a great collection of small boxes that I store in large boxes. Have boxes for knives I no longer have or gifted away too :D

    I save mine. I never gave it much thought at first, but it just went that way.

    Not only do I save boxes, I make boxes for the knives that didn't come with boxes. :D

    I save the boxes but keep them stored in a bin that is up in the attic to save room in the house.
