Good Morning All,

Just tapping into the collective wisdom, I've treated myself to a midi size ammo can primarily for the purpose of collecting the scouts knives before a hike and handing them back out once we get to camp.

What I don't want to do is get any of them scratched in transit so I want to put in some layers of soft foam, does anyone know of a good source of foam that will do the trick?

And if anyone has any nuggets of wisdom with regards to scouts and knives I'm all ears.

Kind regards,

Google convoluted foam, that’s the stuff in camera boxes etc. Just basic foam rubber would do though and would hold the knives firmly in place.

Could try this, it comes already cut on the side, just cut to length required, put the knife in and hold it with a elastic band, re-usable too. Comes in different lengths and sizes, very handy to shield other valuables too.
