Ignore the bad vibes, Sneider - I know I’m not alone in loving seeing your collection photos - truly remarkable! I can’t get enough, and certainly always end learning something new. Thanks to you, I now have a green baker’s knife - never knew they existed, and now I’ve been lucky enough to find one!  :tu:

I know many big collectors are secretive...but that could never apply to me. I derive much enjoyment in sharing photos as in collecting. I feel a collection should be shared with others...and I have never put much stock in any negative feelings encountered. I know some think I brag alot...and they are more than welcome in their thoughts.

I say post if you like and be smurfed any nay sayers...but that is just me.  :climber:

I start and get curious about what you have in the wooden drawers

Here is a old thread about my first drawer shelf.

Maybe I missed it, but I’ve never seen anyone react negatively to collection pictures.  No reason to be ashamed, whether you have 3 knives or 30,000 knives, whether in glass display cases, plastic totes, or cardboard boxes.  Let your collection flag fly!

Most of my knives reside in old machinists tool chests, but I do display some knives in my office in these frames/cases.  Treating them as “art” justifies purchases. ;)

I love seeing them - so much to admire, and things to see you never knew existed!

 :iagree:  I'm sorry to hear you've both experienced negativity about showcasing your collections.  I love seeing everyone's pictures so KEEP posting please.

I wholeheartedly agree. My own little accumulation of SAKs is very modest when compared to those of many here, but this does not diminish the enjoyment I get from seeing photos of their marvelous collections.

If nothing else, it makes me feel a little less crazy.  ;)

Here is my SAK part of my collection. I do not know how many SAKs I have but the last time I counted, I had over 1000. I probably should get into a count...but that takes time and effort.

Here is how I store my collection. I have 2 largish cabinet and chest sets, and a longer cabinet with a chest on top of that one. The chest on top of the longer unit contains the majority of my Leatherman collection which is not posted here.

Here are the 2 units in my bedroom.
IMG_1578SMALL by Chako, on Flickr

When I was forced to look for a more efficient storage system, I found the first unit with as many shallow drawers as I could find. I bought the second unit a couple of years later and had a hard time sourcing the same unit but I managed it.  :woohoo:
IMG_2264A by Chako, on Flickr

Here is the longer unit located on the other side of my bedroom. By the time I needed more expansion, Sears stopped carrying these shallow drawer units. I was forced to find who the OEM was and to see if they had something similar. International was the OEM and yes, they still carried the same family line...albeit in slightly different colours.
IMG_2263A by Chako, on Flickr

Here you can see the chest on the longer unit base. This is where I house most of my Leathermans along with just enough room for the Leatherman display on what's left of the longer units realestate.
IMG_9062A by Chako, on Flickr

Now most of my SAK collection are located in 1 of the 2 cabinet and chest sets, with some stored in the longer cabinet.

Here is the top of the SAK storage chest. This is a mixed storage area with a little bit of everything. I do store a pair of Victorinox eating sets up here along with my catalogues and dealer materials.
IMG_8851A by Chako, on Flickr

Down one level...in the deepest drawer are my Battle Series Victorinox knives in their wooden display boxes along with  both series of Zodiac Classics. On the left is my main card multi-tool repository where I also keep some of my Victorinox SwissCards.
IMG_8852A by Chako, on Flickr

One level lower, the first drawer of Wenger knives.
IMG_8854A by Chako, on Flickr

The next level down also contains more Wengers.
IMG_8855A by Chako, on Flickr

Going one level down again, is a slightly deeper drawer that contains a mix of items. There is a big Victorinox metal store display knife which I just found out I am missing its base to stand it up. I also have the last Wenger special set they produced before being consumed by Victorinox called the United Woods Series. I also have a few more Wenger knives in their metallic display boxes. This is where I also store my Victorinox Victory Classic made from some of that famous ships timbers.
IMG_8856A by Chako, on Flickr

Now starting on the bottom chest, the drawer on the right contains a few special SAKs focused on Swiss military units along with badge caps, and other militaria related to those knives. The first two drawers are much like the left drawer, mostly survival gear, hobo knives, and other non SAK knives.
IMG_8857A by Chako, on Flickr

Going down one level, the first Victorinox drawer.
IMG_8858A by Chako, on Flickr

Next level down, more Victorinox goodness.
IMG_8859A by Chako, on Flickr

Even more Victorinox stuff. I try to organize my collection via Size and thickness if possible.
IMG_8860A by Chako, on Flickr

Next level down is where most of my Alox knifes rest. Note I also have a countertop display taken from a hardware store. I got this with all the knives included. I think it dates to the late 70s or early 80s.
IMG_8861A by Chako, on Flickr

The next 3 drawers in the cabinet are deeper drawers. I found these perfect to store a lot of SAKs in boxes that I didn't want to separate. This includes both Wenger and Victorinox. These are older photos, but I have also a few Swiza knives here also in storage.
IMG_8863A by Chako, on Flickr

The slightly less deep middle bottom drawer is where I store SAK books, SAK repair kits, and other SAK related miscellanea. Also store in here are a good number of Victorinox kits, especially those glove compartment sets made for the American market.
IMG_8865A by Chako, on Flickr

The last bottom drawer is another deep filled to the brim with boxed knives from both Wenger and Victorinox.
IMG_8866A by Chako, on Flickr

Now looking at that longer unit on the other side of the bedroom, I have a few SAK items stored there as well.

In this miscellaneous storage drawer, are a couple of Chinese New Year collector knives.
IMG_8867A by Chako, on Flickr

Another drawer holds a set of Beijing Olympic Victorinox Knives in their medal containers.
IMG_8868A by Chako, on Flickr

The last SAK storage drawer contains a few Chinese Victorinox knife sets.
IMG_8869A by Chako, on Flickr

So there you have it. My SAK section of my collection. Lets hope to see other collections please, be they small or large.  :hatsoff:

Terrible pic of my collection as of today. I counted 364 knives with zero duplicates. I can do the "a different SAK a day for one year" challenge :ahhh
But there may be a few more scattered around the house.



I do buy & sell some stuff from time to time but I think I've been at 350-400 SAKs for a while now. I sold 23 SAKs in the past few weeks. The IKEA cabinets cannot hold a lot more knives, it's a bit crowded as it is.
