I started trying to keep them, but with over 200, they do take up some space, plus I've never yet sold or traded a Spyderco (I have gifted some).
When I die my daughters will have the chore of disposing of them. They don't know enough about the different varieties to be able to match a knife with a box though, and they may decide to keep some rather than sell them. I have given them each several Spyderco's, so at least they recognize the name brand.
I have very few truly "new-in-box" knives except duplicates I bought "just in case" something happened to the first, because I do carry and use just about all of them.
I also consider them for after I die. A lot of work with 200 knives, but you could put little piece of paper in the box with a "do not sell for less than" number in there. If you were really nerdy (a lot of us are
) you could take a picture and put it in the empty box as well. Then again, wouldn't you love to be the guy that finds another knife nut's collection after he dies and give a fair amount but still get some nice pieces for a good price?
