    I have quite a few blades. All of different sizes and shapes. They are hard to store with any rhyme or reason. I just store them on the top shelf of a safe that I made a custom interior for. I store the ones that I "could" use normally, in a place that I can get to them rather easily. The others,like the one pictured above,is stored in the "deep cover" of another safe.

    The blades are all kept wiped down with Break Free CLP. Some of the blades that have sentimental value, I have to really consider what I put on them as not to change the finish,color,or normally accumulated markings to the blade itself,bolsters,hilt, or handle. If you own any blades that are the expensive,higher quality blades,you can actually reduce the value,trying to keep it.....uhhh....pretty. (same as a firearm)

    I am not an "expert" in this....just do what I can. --- pruhdlr

    With that said I am looking for a great Bowie knife to carry in the woods. My SOG Flash 2 is a great pocket knife. But looking for something more to hunt with. Any suggestions.

    What kind of price range?

    High Carbon Steel to allow striking a fero rod.
    Full tank construction.
    Minimum= 4 1/2" blade length.
    Nice to have a loop on the sheath for a fero rod.

    At $1450.00 I'd say that's a beaut !!!! Fossil Walrus Ivory is way cool. Almost too Purdy to use. LOL And, I think I'd have a different means of striking a fero rod.

    I like both of my Outdoor Edge knives. Don't know if they still make 'em or not.... based off that little pistol grip for the bone saw. I like the chest spreader. Nice kit.

    The handles on them are really nice, I thought the spreader would be really cheap but it's sturdy. I'll find out how sturdy if I go deer hunting this fall in ga. I have used the filet knife for cleaning fish and even through bones to take the head off it stays really sharp. I haven't had to sharpen it really but the sharpener with it works really well

    Me? I've got knives everywhere. I've got 'em in various packs that have hunting gear in, I have 'em layin' around the house, I have 'em in a shoe box under my bed... they're everywhere. The leather sheaths, I try to keep them oiled up, that helps keep the moisture at bay. It also helps to keep the leather supple and better protects the leather from salt staining from sweat. Stainless blades, I just make sure they're clean and wiped down before stowing them. The HC steel blades, I try to keep them oiled a little more religiously.

    I suppose a feller COULD make himself a wood/glass display case for such things, line it with some felt, or silk... what ever floats yer boat. Or, they could go into an ammo can. LOL

    LOL I unnerstan'.

    Many moons ago, prior to my father retiring, he had moved back to Kotzebue, AK where he was born/raised. One year, I bought him a knife for his birthday. Later in the year, I noticed he didn't have his knife... so, I bought him one for his NEXT birthday. This pattern went on for about half a dozen years. He was always tickled with getting a new knife... but, one year, he was almost a little down when he opened his "new knife". I asked him... what's the matter? Don't like it? NO, I love it (was his reply)... but, I keep losing them, breaking them... and I feel bad about that. So... I asked him, do you think of me each time you use it? "Absolutely !!" Does it gets used daily? "You KNOW it !" Then? What's the problem? I KNOW what to get you for your birthday, and that it won't just be a dust collector... but, something you'll reach for on a daily basis. "OHHH... well then... (big smile)". That took care of that dilemma.

    I was just thinking about storage. Like a tool roll or something. I don't want to dis-p[lay them because then people will want to put their meat hooks on them.

    Cool story by the way.

    Any thing to do with my Dad who just turned 83. I would want to show off. His time is short so I appreciate him more very day. Mom passed this a July.
