The Hardcore Knife Collector's Display Methods

Jul 25, 2008
Collecting knives is one of the most exciting and fulfilling hobbies when it comes to collecting knives at all. There are several manufactured knife companies that have been around for a very long time and many of their products are very valuable today. If you are planning on a start in knife collecting; locating these knife companies and exploring their product line is the way to go.

Collectible knives appreciate in value consistently over the years. It isn't like investing in gold or the stock market, but you can gain some increased value by purchasing a few and hanging on to them for awhile. However, the biggest payoff for me and many folks is to just display them and show them off. You can have a great time doing this while your knives appreciate.

How do I present them and show them off to my visitors? There are many methods to go about displaying your collectible knives and make an impression. I have a couple of favorite methods that I use but I have to be honest with you. There is not a possible technique that would allow me to display every knife I that I own. I simply do not have the wall space nor would I want to go that far with it. I have a rotation structure that is straightforward. When I want an adjustment in the decor of my area, I alternate the knives around and send the old displayed knives into storage for a short time.

My favorite scheme is a simple military medals style shadow box made of varnished wood. The shadow box makes a distinguished knives display and can even be customized to hold a small light to brighten up the exhibit. These shadow boxes are comparatively inexpensive and can be located in some of your large hobby shops or even at the all-purpose department store for five or ten bucks.

I simply position the shadow boxes the length of each wall in two rows to present my collectible knives. I have one complete wall of Buck knives and the additional walls are for the other manufactured knife brands that I accumulate.

Another very good way to arrange yours knives for display is a coffee table box with a glass top. Line the inside with some felt and a few lamps and you have a beautiful display that takes up no additional room than the area the table was already in. This may be a bit pricier than the shadow box method but sure looks nice once it is completed.

That's about all there is to it. Simply show those knives off and be proud of them. That's what knife collecting is all about.
