I have been thinking for quite some time on how to display my collection. I never had been the one to go the traditional route, seeing that I'm not a traditional kind of guy. I love simple things, old things, and tend to break off of what is usually done. I decided to go simple and vintage, finding old items that told a story in themselves, rather then just shelves for my collection, I tend to have just as much fun finding ways to display my knives then getting the knives themselves. How do you display your collection, traditional or with a personal touch?

Right now I don't have anything to show. Years ago I built my own knife cabinets with glass fronts that hung on the walls. I sold them and now my knives sit in drawers and old jewel boxes. I will get some cabinets that I saw on the internet, I hope, by Summer.

I have seen some members do a really nice job with displays of knives. I am kind of with Craig, right now I have knives about anywhere, including boxes under the bed, on shelves, in drawers, in shop, in farm truck, in coats...One of these days, I am going to make some shelves. I will say I struggle to be innovative in my picture taking and thus the scene in which the knife is displayed so I can post it here on iKC.

A good spot to look through for ideas is here: http://www.iknifecollector.com/group/knifephotography

I keep tabs on that group because every once in a while I see an inspiration that gets me going back to picture taking.

Cool! Looks like a store!

Well Lee that sure is nice! Where in the world did you get that, whenever I go to sales I never see anything close to that!

A store that I would love to see. Lol
Same here, Steve. Never come across anything like that!

Paid a hundred bucks for the large display off of craigslist and the little one is a keenkutter display that I found in a junk store. It's almost full of keenkutter knives.
