How do you store / display knives and EDC items?

Anyone else have this "problem" where they wake up to grab all their things for the day and think...
I've been using a WOLF watch box to store some of the knives that I carry most alongside my EDC items.
I don't own 10 watches, but I do own more than 10 knives. Dump trays are okay, but I like having individual spots for knives and watches. I've seen watch boxes and knife cases, but I've never seen one that combines both - have you? Hoping to see some photos of how other folks are keeping their various EDC essentials organized.

This is my solution, i searched for ages for the one of these old tool boxes an finally got lucky!
Heavy used look is fine with me, just gave it new felt on the insides.
Good thing is, with the open front lid which lies down when opened i also have a little place for my true daily carry to snag it in the morning.
And one drawer still free to fill... 😁

I dont display. My EDC tools are scuffed, scratched and worn. No need to display. All of my fixed blades are in a bin out of the way, most of my folders are clipped to a bin for easy access.
I placed floating shelves in my closet so when I get dressed in the morning, I have all my most used watches, knives, etc. there for the choosing.
Antique wooden machinists toolbox : flipdown front panel with felt lining, felt in all drawers, drawers are of diff depths, and a large top tray area....They make new ones the same way now too.
Organized? Looks like you have a better start on it than I do. I have my least used knives in a pelican case and the rest God knows where.
I learned after surviving a nighttime house fire, that you had better have your EDC loaded in the next days pants and hanging within easy reach before you go to bed.
I will never forget that.... Always be prepared...seconds count
I understand completely what you mean. The box I use is already filled...

I welded this up with some diamond plate & misc stuff I had laying around. I'm going to polish it to either a chrome like finish or possibly s satin finish...

If I were to make sell these, I would sell them for $10 & still make a profit....it’s shipping that would blow it. Size/weight.
Who needs a dining room table? :P



Those pictures are missing about 2 or 3 new folders and at least 3 Moras. Sadly the collection lives in a drawer unless something is being used. I need to figure out a way to display the nicer stuff at least.
My knives have a small box full of toilet roll cores that hold them upright.

Ballin on a budget, that's some good thinking right there! Pics?

Dude, impressive frugality!
I have a decorative wire basket that sits on my nightstand that holds my EDCs. Phone, Keys, Wallet, Knives, chains, rings, other shiny things.

I guess its about form and function. I am setting up my apartment (studio) to have an easy "stand in one place to get ready" design, so having the drop basket helps.

Mmmmkay.
I built a little rectangular wood caddy that I keep by my sink for my EDC. Simlar to the DaLuca Caddy that was/is on Massdrop recently. I had the wood, and one of my boys wanted to do a "project". It's approx. 10" wide by 14" long. Fits the side of my sink/counter nicely. holds plenty, even a gun if I'm just changing pants etc. (goes in the safe if not going back on,, I've got kiddies, no firearms lying around!).
As for knives, I've got another idea, for a fun "project", for a hanging storage, display "board".
If I get around to making it, who knows, maybe I'll build a bunch and and sell them here to you all!!!
Sometimes I just leave it laying around the house!
Occasionally it gets a little messy...
But where's the fun in hiding it all away?
I say: go with the flow!
know what I mean?

My 6XXs have been in limbo-land for three months--hope they haven't spoiled!
Not true! But it did take half the day to clean up the mess ;- )
