How do you store your SAK's ?
« on: August 02, 2019, 01:24:44 PM »
From the beginning I start collecting SAK's I stored them in plastic boxes. It was not perfect because the all touched each other and I did not like that (gerleatherberman made a remark on that the first day I joined the forum and I  :iagree: with him). I found the perfect solution for my Leathermans after I saw Chako's collection ( https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,82209.0.html ) and now I found the perfect storage for my SAK's to.
I already sorted out my big SAK's and the rest will follow.  :woohoo: :hatsoff:

I have a cheapo copy of one of the Gerstner style tool chests. A few drawers have pocket knives and tools in, and the others have watches, cufflinks, razors, pens, pencils and compasses, torches, music stuff, camera stuff, miscellaneous cables, and all the other general life stuff that needs somewhere to live.

Very nice collection and storage solution, Ivo. 

@AimlessWanderer, I have the same thing.  My cabinet is a Gerstner, but it's from their "International" line, which is just their code for "not made in Ohio."  It's still pretty well made, and it's perfect for storing SAKs, but it cost about 1/10th what a US-made Gerstner cost.  Mine's about full; I should get another to add on to the top of it some time.

Mine is branded U.S. Pro Tools, but we've probably got essentially the same thing  :tu:

Nice collection, and storage solution.

Here is a 10 year old thread showing my trials and tribulations on finding my perfect storage solution. It shows my initial attempts...settling on a nice tool cabinet and chest...getting another...and that is where this thread ended. I had to buy another longer cabinet and a smaller tool chest afterwards. I am about where I do not want to upgrade or expand my storage solutions anymore. I figure 3 cabinets and chests are my max for allowable space.

I store most of mine in 2x5 foam pouches:

Keeps the loose knives in storage from damaging each other. I write the dates and model info on the outside.

Nice collection Ivo!

I use a couple of IKEA BESTÅ cabinets with glass doors and glass shelves. But I've actually run out of room :ahhh

Somehow, I think that's a common problem around here.  :ahhh

All IKEA in my office too. Misc. LACK on the walls for open display and most of the box storage. And I think BILLY? units with glass shelving and downlights.

If you have room for that it is the perfect solution , but you need to add more shelves to it :iagree:

 :iagree: Exactly. They never come with enough!  But at least they're available with IKEA products. Just about impossible with any other brand.

Ivo, I recently bought the SAME EXACT cabinet for storing my SAKs and other pocket knives. Got mine at Leroy Merlin...
I guess great minds think alike, LOL!

My second storage box for my SAKs is ready:

- Some camo saks
- ALOXes
- HUNTSMAN

Now I can paint the third box  :hatsoff:
I need a lot more boxes to store them all.
