    I am considering to go for a pelicase 1500 with nalpak 44 knives foam inserted my knife storage

    I like the idea of using foam + case.
    It is easy to tidy and the knives are safe

    However, compared to a roll or a drawer, I think it may be bulky...
    does anyone has experience, feedbacks or alternatives ?

    what do you think of this solution?

    It will be bulky, and may be overkill unless you are going to travel with it. I used smaller Pelican cases a lot for moto touring, to keep stuff like cigars and the cell phone dry during river crossings.

    Toss 'em in a drawer. Use a display case. Throw them in a closet.

    Bulky. Expensive. Unnecessary. Not (usually) useful.

    Pelican cases are great! Best alternative to a gun safe

    I have a Plano case with the 55 slot Nalpak insert and it works nicely. I had to modify it to fit correctly and also accommodate a row of pick and pull foam for slipjoints.

    I have the Harbor freight one too, it's a great price. I wouldn't trust it to be as robust as a Pelican case, but in this case I don't need it to be. I got it right before I moved, and it worked perfectly for transporting my collection. It has holes that fit a standard padlock too.

    I use the Apache from Harbor Freight for transporting my throwing knives to competitions - easily carries triplets of my no-spin knives, my 2 sets of IKTHOF bowies, my 2 sets Mountain Man bowies, and Kabar Thunderhorse throwers. The knives slide in between the foam cubes without any of them needing to be removed.
