Maybe this has been done before but I thought it would be neat to show some pictures of old knife boxes. I have a few and would like to see what others might have. Starting the topic will also give me an excuse to finally that pictures of them. My first is an old company from Elmira NY, home town of Carrier Cutlery.

Mike, You have some nice old boxes, and other paper and letters too ! Cool to see the ' autographs ' of famous early cutlers. ::ds::

Many of the old cutlery boxes have great graphics. Here are my only two, plain, but I think I'm prouder of them than I am of most of my knives.

Nice idea for a thread Mike! Great graphics on that Miller box RC!!
Here is my lonesome box, which goes with the knife and envelope below it. Being a marginally organized person, I decided against collecting the paraphernalia and paper. I can't always find the knife I'm looking for!!
Might have been a mistake, seeing how beautiful the boxes can be, and how much they've gone up in value (maybe even outstripping knives!)!

Just took pics of my boxes so I will be adding more in the next few days. Charlie I really like that La Belle. I had one once but sold it since it was not a NY company, sometimes I do dumb things. Anyway here are few more. I really like the button boxes as they make good displays.

WOW!!! Those Nagle Re-Blade boxes are unreal! Do you have one of those knives? I've seen pictures of them but never saw one in the flesh(or steel).

I don't have any pocket knife boxes(except some newer ones)but do have a few for kitchen cutlery and such.Here's a few:

A set of Aero-Flo plastic fruit knives
A Le Knife made out of duPont plastic.
A set of Rowoco knives from France with aluminum handles and brass rivets.
A "Safety Pea Knife" from an old joke company.
The last is a real old set of Wm.Rodgers table knives.The box art(which is why I bought the set;I am a sign artist by trade)is absolutely beautiful.

I guess not many people collect boxes!! I think they tell a story about the era's that the knives were made in and also they just look neat, especially with a knife from the same company. Here are a few more. The Casr Brothers is not a new box from the Case Classic's but an original. Still looking for a nice Case Brothers knife to go with it.

Beautiful boxes Mike! The Carrier and Case boxes somehow portray more pride in the products than modern stuff!

Here are a few more, I'll keep going till I have posted them all. I have about 5 or 6 different Cattaraugus boxes. The brown one is the only one I have ever seen. I think it is a newer box maybe the 40's or 50's.
