    I picked up the Canadian Tire version of a Pelican case the other day. It uses the same pick and pluck foam, has the same construction and features of a Pelican, including being waterproof and dustproof, at only $89 CAD on sale. It's 16 3/4" X 14 3/8" X 6 1/4" inside.
    I got the idea from pictures on Bladeforums.

    Big fan of pelican cases. I have a lot of them.

    Luck is the by-product of preparation and opportunity colliding. Stay Lucky!

    Nice. I'm sure it will help protect them. I've got all mine stacked on top of each other, I'm sure mine are getting beat up.

    yup, I went this route years ago, and managed to fit the entire collection in it at one point.

    The group out grew the case in short order and now houses only most of my folders. Fixed blades are mostly in a second pelican case now.

    They sell a $20 case at Sams that is not terrible for the price.

    They are no Pelican for sure but then no Pelican is $20 either!

    I am being Flooded right now in Mo. and have a 7'x10' cargo trailer pretty much full of loaded Pelican cases on high ground waiting to go back home.
    Lots of Storm and SKB cases too!

    i've been wanting to make one of these similar to the taurus first 24 case. i'd like to put in a semi-auto pistol w/light, extra mags, paddle holster, multitool, folding knife, fixed-blade knife (in a sheath), flashlight, extra batteries for lights, knife sharpener, fire steel and striker, some paracord, and emergency (space) blanket.

    it'd basically be like a mini bug-out kit, but nothing too in-depth. just something for that just-in-case moment, should it ever arise. basically something easy to grab and go, along with my bag, if ever needed. so all the stuff inside would never be used unless absolutely necessary.

    I have one that's stuffed full of tools and recovery equipment (straps, winch-line extensions, snatch-block, shackles, Hi-Lift climber, drilling hammer, wrenches). Mine weighs 107 pounds. I strap it into the cargo area of my vehicle.

    The seal on the edge is the fragile area. You don't have a problem if you're not overloading it. But if you pinch something in the seal area, it can smash the plastic surrounding the o-ring and compromise the seal. I'm not talking about a wrench (you'd have to be pretty careless not to notice that), but just the edge of a nylon or canvas bag for example).

    wow! 107 lbs!!! that ain't light, lol.

    something like that isn't just a "grab and go" sort of thing. more like a "make sure you have a good grip on it; get a good stance; and make sure to lift with your knees", lol.
