    Thanks,
    I'll probably get a chest eventually, but like creating my own solutions when I can.

    My storage is rather simple, just a couple of drawers in my desk. The left drawer holds my 3-1/2" knives, my right drawer holds my "hard use" knives, and the basket holds all my watch pocket knives. I also have my '19 Guardian knife and my most prized GEC locked in the safe for safe keeping.

    Hard to beat a US made Gerstner's. I ordered a small one at Blade some years back for about a third of what one costs today.

    My dad gave me this tackle box several years ago for christmas. I keep a lot of knives in it, but nothing real fancy. Not any bones in here except the fixed blade that's showing, which is gone now.

    My best knives are kept in sack ups 18 pouch rolls. I have nine of those, eight of which are full. I have a ten pouch sack ups that holds big knives like full size lockbacks and folding hunters. I also have three small cedar chests. I will show those when I get a chance to take some photos.

    Another Gerstner fan here. I purchased this chest at a flea market during a vacation trip to Massachusetts, from the son of a retired machinist. It now houses much of my Victorinox collection.

    This cedar chest is all user schrades, old pre delrin/swinden knives.

    IMG_3428.JPG

    This one has some big stockmans and a few cattle knives with room for future things.

    IMG_3429.JPG

    This one is old imperials, all have the 1936-52 stamp and there's one old hammer brand. Mostly scouts and cattle knives.

    A different kind of chest with mostly pre delrin/swinden schrades and a few other knives. All small guys.

    The amount of knives I have is ridiculous.

    I could open up a museum, "Come and see the loony bin that is the knife accumulator's abode, and his collection of excess, for your perusal and gawking pleasure". $10 per tour. Then with that money... :eek::D

    Well that was an easy sell. Maybe I should have made it $25. :D

    I bought a number of Harbor Freight plastic tray boxes. Translucent crappy plastic, removable inserts suitable for fishing stuff, small parts, fasteners, and KNIVES. This made my folding knife collection possible, along with my databasing method for finding the dang things again when I want to. Celluloid-handled knives are different. Cigar boxes with cocked lids, blades all opened, cool dark room. Fixed blades are everywhere, but often in padded 4 pistol storage cases.

    This is my current situation. Made some extra hooks for this Victorinox rotating display. Moderns are on the other side. These are the knives in my current rotation sans the A. Wright in my pocket, and the smooth green bone Rough Rider canoe that serves as my pajama/sweat pants knife. This setup is becoming insufficient. I have so many knives that I'd like to add to the rotation, but they instead sit in 4-50rd ammo cans, and I don't always want to dig through them. I'll be working on a better way to access and display.

    Did it come with the key? You can still get some of the keys from Gerstner.
