    Default Where do you store your knives?

    I do not have many knives by they are becoming more? So my horror I took out my Dunn hunting knife and saw some rust on the cutting edge. This made me wonder where do you store /keep your knives?

    Is it feasibleto have a display case made or just a neat drawer?

    If stored in a leather sheath the chances of rust increases.

    Wipe the blade with a lightly oiled cloth, and store in a piece of cotton cloth.

    Default Re: Where do you store your knives?

    One at 02h30 on my belt, one left inside front pocket, a cheapy in the door panel of my bakkie, 2 in my hunting box, 2 in my wingshooting box, one in my range bag, a kukri in between my shirts and a couple on the dining room table or piano.
    The rest goes into a wooden box that was my grandfather's gun cleaning box, so it is well impregnated with gun oil.

    It would seem that I've been fairly fortunate with rust, the only one affected thus far, was the Opinel.

    An Opinel without rust hasn't worked yet

    I just leave them lying around in my man cave.
    (but take them out of their sheaths)

    Ever cut an apple with an Opinel? Blade changes colour as you cut.
    The original Steel Opinels.

    My Opinel steel has been on every single hunt ive taken. And done its fair share of work.

    Once bough a Stainless one as well. But just not the same as the original steel.
