I got my 7yr old boy his first pocket knife for christmas this year. I made this box to go with it…a nice safe place to keep his new knife. The box is alder with sapele back and wenge front and zebrawood pull. I finished it with multiple coats of gloss laqer spray. I cant wait to see the look on his face christmas morning. Happy holidays everybody and thanx for lookin.

I’m 50 and still have my first knife. My dad traded something to one of his friends for it. I love thinking about all the initials I left in the forest and all the squirrels I skinned. I had to wait on my son, now that having a pocket knife at school is a federal crime. But he got it, a schrade old timer and still carries it after about 12 years.

Thats a pretty nice little box. I am sure it will make the gift that much more special for your son.

Great work.

My son is 21 and he’s always got his pocket knife. His holiday gift this year is a pocket whittling/carving knife.

After my sons got their toten chips-a badge you earn in boy scouts that proves you know how to handle
a knife-I took them down to a local knife shop and got them the regular swiss army knife, which the
owner showed them how to sharpen to a razor edge. I had pretty much forgotten about this, but this
site brings back fond memories. Thank you for sharing.

That is a beautiful box. I also have a son who is seven years old and received his first pocket knife for Christmas. Your box gives me a good idea for his birthday next month.

Thank you for posting your project.

Merry Christmas!
