For the past several years I have made many, many (probably over 100) knife display cases. Most are similar in construction and hold varying numbers and styles of knives. The 1st shows one to hold hunting style 8 to 10” long. They work like a shadow box with a mirror for the back panel which allows you to see both sides of your prize items ( my parents gave me this knife about 65 years back). Next oak case shows how you lift the front acrylic sliding panel to load the case. The shelves and supports are also acrylic. Third (walnut) shows a bit different style loaded with some of the wooden folding knives (over 800 now) I make. #4 (maple & cherry) shows a two sided case as you can see by the dual lift handles. Next shows a side view of a regular width case. The configurations are endless as shown by last pic of a cedar case for some type display which I cannot remember. Thanks for looking. Comments and PMs if you care to.

I’d like to comment but magnificant doesn’t seem to be sufficient

Awesome display case. The mirror is a great idea and a cool sliding panel. Nice work.

Very nice design and great looking build—probably one of the nicer display cases for knives that I’ve seen. My dad was a big knife collector, so I’ve seen a few displays in my life—he would have like your design.
