I love my 530, it was what started my Benchmade collection years ago. Shame I swore them off after their anti-gun antics came to light. Haven't bought one in over a year now.

Buy the ESEE 4, you won't regret it. I've had mine almost a decade and used and abused it. Thing is a beast. Can be a bit much for smaller tasks and the thickness can make it difficult to sharpen but it's a workhorse stud.

Thanks for the feedback on the ESEE. I had completely forgotten about the whole Benchmade anti-gun thing until you mentioned it. Luckily I don’t need anymore BM knives and have plenty of other options moving forward.

What do you folks use to store your fixed blades and folders? I am using backpacks and satchels. Is there a better product?

Q
I need to do better also. my folders are mostly in a drawer on my dresser cause I use one every day. my fixed blades are mostly in a Cabelas gear bag, except for those scattered about that are used for specific functions...

Q
I have a mix of cheaper knives and some better quality production knives. I picked up one of those cabinets on clearance for less than $100 and a cheap LED light kit. Now I need to add more things to it to fill it the rest of the way up. When I get a minute I'll add a photo.

I've got mine in a couple of these:

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-10...5587/302939645

I had a whole bunch of various gear items stored in a couple of Rubbermaid tubs. Unfortunately, that left a lot to be desired, for.a number of logistical reasons. So, since I had a ton of small items, in a number of different general categories, I started looking for a better storage solution.

I had the following criteria:

1.) Keep the items organized by category
2.) Common form factor
3.) Modularity
4.) Reasonable degree of internal customization
5.) Ease of access to contents
6.) Inexpensive
7.) Commercially available, off-the-shelf solution

After a bit of searching, and given the spatial constraints within which I had to work, I settled on those parts organizers. Depending on what I need to store, I use none, some, or all of the included trays.

I've got a (literal) stack of them now, filled with many of my various implements/accessories/toys/gadgets, and labeled accordingly.

A couple these are being used for your stated purpose...one of them is filled with a bunch of new-in-box folding knives, and another holds about a dozen or so fixed blades.

If I were going to be doing a lot of transporting, I might have chosen a different solution. (the way I'm using these, the contents of some of the cases might get disorganized when the cases are tossed around) However, for simple, sturdy shelf storage, that costs a little over ten bucks, and can be carried like a briefcase, it'd be hard to beat one of these.
