No, that's not my whole collection!
Some of the ones at home are kept in their original boxes, some are in blocks, some are kept in rolls that I don't ever carry, etc etc. The Hattoris & Shuns have pretty nice boxes, as do the Tojiros.
Eventually I want to get a few Mag-Blok magnetic storage bars; they're beautiful hardwood strips with magnets in the back. You hang 'em up and stick your knives on them like so:
I have a few different cases/rolls that I use. In all honesty my current job doesn't really require 1/2 the knives I normally take, but I always think what if I want one and don't have it along?
I got a large tool box full of knives and small gadgets, including a Chinese cleaver very identical to the one pictured above!
I like that one the best, because I use it for slicing, dicing and chopping fresh veggies for stir fries, soups, stews and such!
