Yes, I do. They take up so much space. :-(

I keep most of my knife boxes but all of my Spyderco, Benchmade, etc. Just in case I want to trade or sell one down the road (haven’t yet).

Stuff that I beat on and am never going to sell (Gerbers, Chinese Kershaws, Leatherman multitools, etc.), I don’t bother.

I think I still have boxes for maybe half of my knives. I don't really care about the boxes, they have no value to me. Unless a knife is new it doesn't seem to effect selling much. I don't usually sell anyway.

I keep the boxes as well.

Oddly, I felt slightly disappointed when I received my first Spyderco that came in a padded pouch :o. Not really disappointed but indifferent about it. I don't mind it now though, same thing just without the cardboard.

Yes, for possible future resale. I've never resold one, however, so idk why I do. They sure take up a lot of space!

For the most part I keep the boxes, though I've gotten rid of two. One mule box and my South Fork box. They're both big, but the SF box is friggin huge, had to go.

Otherwise I generally store mine in their boxes when not in use and also keep them for resale value. I don't sell much, but do let go of things occasionally to keep the hoard in check, mostly. :p

I only throw out boxes of user knives that show enough wear that if I did decide to sell, not having a box wouldn't affect the value
