    small knife storage

    hey guys,
    i just found a small case made to store flash drives and memory cards at the dollar store.
    then i realized it would be great to store my small knives in.


    it's fairly sturdy and has enough room to hold six little knives and a pocket that i keep my angle guide in.
    the remaining pocket is reserved for my ladybug hawkbill that i ordered yesterday. it should arrive in a few days.
    for the money, i think it's an acceptable way to keep my small knives from bouncing around in the larger pistol case that i keep my other spydeco's stored in.
    thanks for looking!

    Pretty cool, Don. For a buck it seems hard to beat! Looks like it would fit easily in a cargo pocket too.

    Thanks for sharing the idea.

    Thumbs up Nice storage devices and packs are very essential

    That's a nice case for those knives "SG" I was lucky a few years ago and landed a lot of cases, backpacks and fanny packs made by Victorinox. All of their items in that arena are very high quality. I never liked fanny packs much at all until I got those models made by Victorinox. The Victorinox fanny packs are not only comfortable but they have great storage slots and hideaway places to store and keep your valuable items. Every time I go hiking or to knife/gun shows I load up one of my Victorinox fanny packs and it's just handy as it can be.

    Their back packs and other storage/carrying packs are very high quality and really take a lot of hard use.

    I think proper storage devices like Maxpedition, Victorinox and others of that caliber are a very worthwhile investment for many reasons.
    Long Live the SPYDEREDGE Spyderco Hawkbills RULE!!

    Nice case. It's funny, when I am shopping, I am always looking at any
    kind of storage device and trying t o figure out what I can use it for.
    I seem to never use the "correct" case for what it was intended.
    I carry a Glock in a camera case, a small NAA 22 mag derringer in
    a cell phone case, loose ammo in a sock etc.

    The last thing I bought was a plastic fishing case that I loaded up
    with my dremel and all of the dremel tools. The plastic fishing storage
    areas work great to sort common tools together.

    hey bal,
    it's funny that you mentioned the fishing lure cases.
    i just bought a few myself, not exactly knowing what i was going to use them for.
    one i ended up using for paracord accessories; beads, buttons and bracelet clasps.
    another i used to store all the photon lights and button cell lights that i usually have attached to the little knives i have stored in the soft case. with the lights attached, the case was bulky and wouldn't close easily.
    i used a double sided one to store all the guitar picks i've accumulated over the last 35 years.
    i think i'm going to pick a few more up and see what else i can organize.
    later,

    I'm exactly the same way. Like Don, I've got a lure container with all my paracord stuff (gate clips, split rings, beads, etc.)

    I've also converted a set of art supplies storage boxes ($1.99 on sale!) into handy-dandy storage cases for my WEPS stones/strops and accessories.

    hey rwb,
    the goddard is a sweet knife, even though it is ps.
    the one i have is the reissue, not the original. the first release had green micarta scales,.
    i got it a while back on special and for a great price.
    i saw one years ago at a flea market vendor, but kept passing on it.
    then, when i finally decided to buy it, it was gone.
    that haunted me for years, and when i saw it on special, i jumped on it immediately!

    hey rwb,
    here's a pic of the baby goddard open.



    just keep in mind how small this knife is. slightly smaller than a ladybug.
    here's a comparison pic.

    hey guys,
    i received my ladybug salt hawkbill last week.
    it's a great little cutter.
    i've carried it at work for the last week, and it cuts cardboard like a champ.
    i added it to my small knife case, and it fit's right in with it's little buddies.




    thanks for looking.
