How do you store your growing collection?

    My collection is starting to take off, and I was just curious as to how most of my brother Devils store their beloved collections. I've been using 8" Robbins custom cases to protect each of my balis, and wish they made them in 7" so the knives would fit a bit more snug. Someone recently suggested Bill's custom cases, but aside from being terribly hard to find them in stock, it's difficult to justify the price for these, specially for a growing collection. I've been considering the Condor Arsenal or Maxpedition Dodecapod and was wondering if anyone who has used either one of these seemingly capable cases can share their thoughts...

    Sweet! Mine just arrived today, and like all Condor products, it provides the best value of price and quality. Sufficient surface area for attaching patches too. My only gripe is that storing my longer-handled knives in the pockets doesn't allow me to close the flap all the way, although this isn't enough of a deal breaker. Wonder if the Maxpedition is worth the extra coin when my balis get closer to a dozen...

    Keep them coming, guys!

    I put them in a tool cabinet with silica gel.
    I recommend it especially if you have a small Devils at home. You can lock out.
    Buy the biggest one so your collection grows faster.

    I alternate between a wicker basket in the kitchen and a wood bool/valet on top of my dresser.

    Going to need to add though since the drawers are now pretty much at capacity.

    Separate zippered padded cases, some in original boxes .I have a question for guys with pelican cases, is the foam bad at scratching items? I am wanting to get a 1300 to haul around my collection when I am away from home for work, which is a good part of the year.
