Hi All,

I have been searching high and low for an attache style case for my knives when they aren't in the roll.

Something along the lines of....

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001664940/ref ... S3CGJG2299

Does anyone know where these style cases exist for a reasonable amount. I'm blown away by the cost some sellers are charging for what seems like a simple box. I would prefer not to get the Victorinox one that is actually, affordable just based on aesthetics. Would it probably be cheapest to build my own?

Also, I am aware of the Messermeister suitcase option.

Thanks as always for any leads.

What is your longest knife?

Home depo and harbor freight sell a hard "breif case" for tools.. they are easily customized and only about 20.00. Fit up to 270 ish suji

Careful shopping on eBay can score you a Zero Halliburton case for a reasonable price. Put in new foam and you can customize it to your kit.

Use a toolchest. Many options out there. I have 5+ to store all mine. The big ones.

Pretty much the sentiment here is don't search for knife cases. Think outside the box a bit.

A search for "padded case" brings up quite a few options on Amazon. A normal tool box might also be an option if you already have sayas/blade guards for your knife bag. Heck, diced foam is pretty cheap as well and you can turn just about anything into a knife case that won't let them rattle around.

If you aren't going to be toting it around then an actual tool chest (even a big roll around if you have enough knives) like 4-K mentioned would be awesome. I'm thinking the big ones like some of these: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_ ... tool+chest

I would imagine you could fit a few knives in some of those. Maybe some grippy drawer liners (the no-slip mesh stuff) in the bottom to keep them from sliding around and you're in business. ;)

Thanks guys. You have echo my own thoughts on this problem, I know of the camera cases at harbor freight.Thank you for the suggestions. I will probably start a build project for this.

Looks like a custom build, the aluminum cases at Harbor Freight would be fine, but they are so ugly haha. I wouldn't be able to leave that out where my fiance could see it or it would end up stashed somewhere I will never find it.

I think I will use cedar wood for the case itself. There are plastic knife holders to be had on Amazon. I will get around to this sooner or later. Im pricing raw materials now.

Musical instrument cases are another option. They often have locking keys.

I like to leave stones in the open air as much as possible. Something inclosed, as long as it doesn't get to hot, is OK I suppose. My go to stones are almost always in water or wrapped in damp rags.
