    I know it’s been asked before but where are y’all getting your boxes from? I’ve seen some nice wooden boxes but can’t seem to source any. I can make them but would like to find somewhere that has a variety of sizes. Slide top would be nice. Maybe cigar boxes? Jewelry boxes?

    Edit: I need them mainly for kitchen knives ranging from 10-14” long and 2” tall.

    Those blades won't fit in a cigar box. There have been discussion on sources for boxes other than wood, mainly cardboard, or tubes IIRC.

    Mark, at It's a Burl sells wood for this as "Saya Box" sets. (these are california redwood, and curly maple at 12.5" long, and about 1/4" or thicker.)

    Other than making them I couldn't source any either, so I ended up buying cardboard boxes and kaizen foam. Not the prettiest but it works and keeps the knife from banging around and gives a storage use also.
