I'm giving a knife as a wedding gift to a chef friend who is getting married Saturday afternoon. Of course, I never thought of the wrapping or the box for this very nice western gyuto, and a cardboard jewelry case with a paper wrapper just doesn't seem sufficient for such a nice knife. It's really close to time, so ordering one is probably out of the question, and to be honest my budget is near it's limit. I'm looking for your best recommendation on a presentation box, or alternative, suitable for a wedding gift. Ideas?

do you have a costplus world market or a pier one nearby? They always have nice boxes or you can find a marshall's, TJMaxx, or ross go to the housewares section and find a nice designer wine box to put the knife in.

if not wine boxes they may have wine bags, they are almost the size of knife bags, depending on how long the knife.

Well, now that we have the box issue settled, what's the gift knife? ;)

Yup, my first custom knife purchase isn't even for me! Although I have to admit it's gonna be hard to let it go. To help with that, I'm not going to actually USE it before handing it over, but maybe I can borrow it later... :)

What a beauty; great gift!

Hope you can track down a suitable box for it...

I don't think you need to worry to much about the box! You could hand that over wrapped in a dead skunk and your buddy will be stoked! Good luck though.

Thanks everyone. I wound up going with cardboard JP Penney's box with gold and silver paper inside and gold and silver wrapping and ribbon out. I did splurge for a real blade-guard. Not as high end as I was hoping, but quite nice, entirely suitable for a wedding gift. On our way now!

Where is the reception and what color is the wrapping paper again? :angel2:

Have fun at the wedding and don't stay out to late!

The gift will be remembered long after the box is decomposed!
