Knife Case

    Anyone use a case like this (minus the .45) to transport their knives? Seems to me it would be better than the soft cases in terms of protecting the knives and not getting cut up by the knives inside. Pros and cons?

    I would use that for knives, Ive often thought of hard case storage for taking lots of knives on a motorcycle, but I would get a foam kit and arrange slits vertically, would make the best use of the space if its deep enough. I was looking a Pelican cases, foam option galore with them.

    I had forgotten about Pelican. If you set up one of their "pick and pluck" (or whatever they call it) foam cases for 3-4 knives, they'd be calling you "the food assassin" when you opened it up at work.

    Bill, I used one similar back when I was doing the kitchen thing. I just got one of the aluminum tool cases from Home Depot and added foam. It worked great for a couple of knives.

    Boydt makes some pistol cases cheaper than Pelican that also work. All my knives out of rotation currently reside in one.

    The good thing about pelican is they are air tight. A couple of packs of silica in there, it would be good for long term storage as well, although I would wrap the blade in a cotton tea towel, just in case contact of the blade and foam cause some long term storage issues.
