I know I should be keeping knife boxes for resale value, but honestly I just don't care to. But, some of these boxes are very elaborate, and I actually feel a little guilty. Am I the only one tossing these things in the trash?
Had em, but alas, there is a toddler path of destruction. Basically, I have accepted that there was a metaphysical housefire when my kids were born, and all my stuff is just awaiting it's doom. I'll replace it all in 20 years, lol.
I keep mine, handy when shipping things back and forth. Keeping track of what's what is more complicated. At some point I've started taking pix of box+ knife for the reviews and that helps to ID some of them, but others...
I generally keep all of my boxes...for everything. I have 2 closets I keep them in, floor to ceiling. I purge them every couple of years to get rid of things with no resale value (and out of warranty), things I have gotten rid of, etc.
have every one ive ever owned. more functional than anything. some knives for some kitchens, some knives for others. if a knife is sitting on the bench, it gets sharpened, cleaned, waxed and put back in the box with a rubber band on it. should its services be required again.... out it comes.
