    Wooden Box for Blade w/ Hone

    I recently had a razor storage box with built in stone and strop stumble into my kitchen. Not sure how common these are for razors. To date I have never seen a box like this for a kitchen knife. I wonder if anyone has one? Now who -Keeps A Respectable Razor Impersonating kNife Going? Anybody? I am dying to see pics.

    That is a very interesting idea

    I love that box you have there. Gives me some additional ideas for future projects.

    And btw, I should have my hone/knife box early in the week. It is in the mail. And I have already talked with Tom Blevins a little bit about future designs, but I want to try mine out first. I am sure he would be super game to put together something like that one there.

    Not sure this one is even practical for kitchen size knives. But after seeing this - and finding out your project was in the works - I have been committing far too much brain activity to this. Especially considering I have absolutely no conceivable need for such an item.

    What I really need is another gyuto..... or more handle wood for a knife I don't own....

    I got my box in today, and here are some pics. What I wanted was a knife/storage box where I could store some knives and gear, and the cover would also act as a bench hone when flipped over. This way when I travel, I can just pack up the box with a knife or two and stropping kit.

    The dimensions of the box are such to fit the bench hone and metal-backed strops that Dave used to sell. I am also going to cut a felt strop to size, so it fits on the rest of the magnetic strip/cover. The box top handle also acts as a stand, so the lid can be used as a stand along strop

    Tom Blevins made the box, and it is of amazing quality. I am really happy with it, and I am going to play with it a bit and probably get another one made that is thinner and easier to travel with in my airline luggage. I've already talked with Tom about just embedding magnets into the cover so the metal-backed strop can be stored on the underside, and then put on top when needed.

    It might also be interesting to have a sliding style like the box chuckles posted. Just thinking at this point.

    That's f'n awesome K! I so want one. The work looks great. Nice contrast, but still very simple and elegant.
