Elegant Storage and Display Chest for the Discriminating Knife Collector. I have had a number of inquiries about making chests for knife collectors so I decided to give it a try. Since I do not collect knives I just went around the house and found a number of things with blades to use in the photos to give an idea of how it would look when in use. This is an average size and style of chest that I re-furbish. I also do consignment and custom made pieces so please contact me if you have questions about this.

Was re-fitted with an innovative custom-built storage and display system that was designed to safely accommodate at least 27 knives. 12 in the main compartment and 15 in the drawer. The internal structure was invented by a woodworking artisan for this specific purpose. SPECIFICATIONS FOR CHEST #418. Stain Color: Red Mahogany.

The chest arrived today. It is beautiful, a work of art! It is beyond my expectations! You, sir, are not only a craftsman, but a master craftsman of the old, old school. There are very few people like you. This belongs in a museum and when I pass, it will be willed to a museum as an outstanding example of master restoration. Your name as the craftsman will be permanent mounted in the chest. I will proudly display it and when it goes on display, in a month or so when I have time to take my pens out of storage, I will send you a photo. Use me as a reference in any way that you want. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul! Good morning Larry Just to say that the pen storage chest arrived yesterday and is absolutely excellent. You must have put many hours of effort into bringing it to this condition and your craftsmanship is well rewarded. It will just about cover my immediate need but I may well have to contact you in the future if the collection hopefully! Many thanks and kind regards. I’ll be following your auctions in the future, as I need a few more cases, and hopefully you’ll be listing some that hold more pens. Theses are really terrific. And some excerpts from other feedback. Craftsmanship: second to none. A pleasure to do business with. Incredible workmanship at a terrific price. Fabulous, very precise, excellent. Fabulous quality, well priced. Just what the doctor ordered. I have a fairly large collection of fountain pens and needed a way to store, protect and display them. I looked at the products that were available and found that in most cases they were cheaply built and/or very expensive. Most of my pens are vintage or antique so I looked for a way to make a storage vessel that was in the age group of my collection. I found I could refurbish silverware storage chests and jewelry boxes that would fit more than 20, 30, 50 and sometimes over one hundred pens at a fraction of the cost of some of the nicer commercial products. Every case is refurbished by hand and incorporates a custom built storage system that I invented. Auctiva Free Image Hosting. Show off your items with Auctiva’s Listing Templates.
