Large Spyderpacs for me. Regardless of the brand, all my folders go into large Spyderpacs. Fixed blades, just a large desk drawer.
I wanted to get some kind of glass display case for the items that i know i will never carry. i just haven't found anything that really appeals to me.

I settled on large Spyderpac as well. After (too) much evaluation, I found that the Spyderpac offers the best combination of capacity, protection, accessibility and price. Additionally, it hangs on the back of my closet door, out of reach from my little kids.

I love this idea. Wife would murder me though.

I have a shelf in an old bookcase dedicated to mine. I cut out some squares of cardboard, painted them black and use them as a makeshift "stand"

Watch them like a hawk

Postby JD Spydo » Mon Mar 11, 2013 11:09 am

I have a footlocker I keep my "sacred cows" in :D But the rest of my main user arsenal I keep in some soft Spyderco zipper pouches and some in a rollup velcro storage case.

I usually know where all my Spyders are at any given time. I do keep some of my most sacred Spyderco and other collectibles in a storage case in my storage unit.

The main thing I've learned is to keep them protected from the elements. There are many storage cases out there on the market and it really depends on what would work best for you individually.

Keep in mind that Spyders and other high quality knives are very much envied and few people are willing to pay the price to have one so therefore they are high on the list of items that are commonly stolen. Do keep that in mind at all times. Because sometimes it's your friends you need to keep a close eye on :( :mad: >> as I discovered the hard way with my late departed G-10 Harpy. I still get angry over that one :mad:

So watch them like a HAWK if you want to keep them.
Long Live the SPYDEREDGE Spyderco Hawkbills RULE!!

Not bad, I like this better than the red ones. Is this one stainless
steel or M4. It would take a while to get a good patina on the M4
though, and a lot of apples. You could shoot apples at one with a
potato gun I guess.

Heck you could evn store your HD in there as well.

Take this Spyderco...Ha ha thanks, I just don't need to get down on my knees though because it is set up at waist height. lol Yeah it was some little plastic book shelf deal that I took the Dremil to and then covered in blue felt.

Just curious what the sixth knife from the left, bottom shelf is? Looks like a shorter Manix 2.

You are correct, it is a Manix 2 it's getting close to being finished but I still have a few things left to do before I posted it. Or I guess I could take a pick of the work in progress but I really wanted the finished product.
