Sure wish there was a guide for posting pics that worked
I always struggled to post with the small icons on the top tool bar. Then I tried the upload a file blue tab. It’s way easier.you can choose to upload from your library. Just make sure to choose a smaller size or it’ll usually say too big of a file.Sure wish there was a guide for posting pics that worked
My method of choice. I recently got a new iPhone. It lets me choose the photo size before uploading directly to BF. No more emailing needed. But the email method served me well for years.You guys are all gold members I would take advantage of the upload feature here on the forums.
If you struggle with the size limits try and use your phone to reduce the image sizes. I do it through Photoshop but an easy way is to crop the picture on your phone then email it to yourself. It's been a while since I did email on an Android but on the iPhone it will ask you what size to send. Choose one of the smaller sizes and it should be within the limits of the forum.
Here's a screenshot I just took.

You just ruined the rest of Christmas... Right after Dave did...Truth be told, as a sheath maker I wish I had a setup like Dave's. They have to be easier to find than what I'm doing
This is a system I've been using for about 5-6 years but every 3-4 blades I buy I need to revamp a drawer here and there. I figure I can expand it to hold another 30-40 knives but then will need to look into something bigger. I can fit AK-47 or smaller diagonally in a drawer but currently don't have room for the F-16 so it's riding a wall magnet at the moment
Right now I have something like 300 fixed blades stored in it, but anywhere from 15-20 out at any given time for sheath making or carry, so they shift around as I work through what's needed out vs stored. If I needed to get all of my fixed blades in here at this point I'd be screwed
Folders are a different system and this is after all the Busse forum

The top section is stacked with Poly down spout. I have a design in mind to split these with a horizontal divider when the time comes. Mostly longer knives are stored up top. The 1" deep drawers have knives just laying on their sides like any tool in a toolbox.

For the deeper drawers I bought Trex composite deck 2x4 wraps and cut them into U shapes which allows the knives to stand partly on edge and maximizes the vertical space in the drawer.

Finally on the deepest "tool drawer" I cut two sizes of PVC and stuck as many in there upright as I could. I lined the bottom of the drawer with very dense 3/4" rubber to protect the tips. This is great storage but only really works for knives in the 6-8" range. Too small and they drop out of sight in the PVC and are hard to find, which is a design flaw.

Hope this helps give someone ideas
Epic photo David. Years of effort and investment. Amazing collection!
Great thread! I have Busse's all over the house but most of mine are stored in a Pelican case.
