Thread: Knife Boxes

  1. #1

    Knife Boxes

    I never want to be featured on the television show "Hoarders." At the same time, I have never been able to part with the beautiful boxes that my knives come in. Most of them are are just cardboard, but I haven't been able to put them in the recycle bin. The Japanese lettering is beautiful and I might "need" the box someday, right? So fess up folks: Do you save the boxes your knives come in? Is there any rational, non-aesthetic reason for keeping them?

    You have to put them in something nice when you resell them

    First, welcome to the site. Second, yes many of us do keep the boxes. As alluded to, they are good for reselling your knives if you must. I even store some of my knives I bought in Japan in their boxes as keepsakes.

    No justification needed. I just like the boxes.

    I guess I keep them. I dunno...actually, a lot of my knives didn't come in boxes, but those that did, I have mostly kept around. I'm sure I've used some for knives that didn't come in a box as well; So, there's another reason to keep them - you might need to store a different knife in a box sometime down the road.

    Well, it seems unanimous! We all keep our boxes. Glad I'm in good company. :-)
