No, I only kept 3 boxes.
They need to much space.

And if I need one I know where I get them including a bonus knife :D

I keep them. Back-ups I leave in the box in storage. Users, well, it's fun looking at the old boxes and comparing the price I paid to the current price. I also like going over the edge-u-cation leaflets.

I've sold a lot of Spydercos and I've never been in a situation where having a box would increase the sale value even just a dollar.

Always keep mine. Have a 40 gallon rubber tote full and just spilled over into a second one.

Actually I've got a bigger box collection than I do a knife collection. But I've had help over the years too. I've got Spyderco boxes all the way back to the "black & white" labeled boxes from the early to mid 90s. My original RENEGADE & BLACKHAWK models both came in those types of boxes.

I've got tons of the Gray Spyderco boxes from the early to mid 2000 decade. It gives me a good feeling when I know what came in those boxes from the factory. Long live the Great Spyder Factory :cool:

I usually keep them. I did a cleanse once and I think i threw out a spare M390 mule. Not happy about that.

Yes. If it came in a box, I save the box.

If I buy a knife to use it goes in the drawer and the box gets trashed. Safe Queens get to rest safely in their boxes. Ed B

I keep the boxes of all of my knives for resell purposes. This is true of anything really. Anything with value that has a box I will keep. I just threw away a bunch of parts boxes for a rifle because I realized I would never take the effort to take them off my rifle.

I keep them because I like them. But I don't have an extensive collection so space isn't an issue yet.

I like the boxes so much that I keep them in boxes, but I am still trying to get my wife to understand why I have so many boxes.

Actually some of the boxes from the past maybe going back 15 years plus might even have some collector value to those who own the knives but for whatever reason either lost the original box or never got one when they acquired the knife. I just had a guy not too long ago wonder if I still had a box for the older Renegade model ( pre-2000).

Some of the boxes from the 2000 to 2004 era I'm sure are coveted.

I started keeping them after I got my second or third spydie. Sad I had already thrown out the first box
