Cabinet shown in Oak with custom monogram engraving

RMK model 21 shown with pair of antique block planes still used often in the shop

   Our Single Door Display Cabinets are hand crafted with the same quailty as any of our Knife Displays. As with any Dorris Display, you get the danish oil finish which is wet sanded between each of the hand rubbed coats. A few coats of a wax finish is then applied by hand after the danish oil has dried. The wax is then buffed by hand to a nice sheen. This finish protects your display and also provides a look of elegance at the same time. This process is obviously more time consuming than a spray on "production" type finish, but we prefer to stay with the old fashioned hand rubbed procedure because it produces a "glass smooth" surface with all the magnificence you expect to find on a hand made piece. Shown below are varoius designs available for Single Door Models. Each style can be customized to suit your collection and  your specific needs.
     All Display Cabinets come with double strength glass in the doors for a thicker, more stable panel. Your choice of wood... Cherry, Oak, Maple, Mahogany, or Walnut. Contact us if you would like a wood type not mentioned, we will check on the availabilty for you.
   Standard Single Door Models are available in 4 knife models, increasing one knife at time, all the way up to a 16 knife model (depending on the size of your knives, the length of double guards or hilts, etc.).
     Standard models (our designs) are shown below. If you have a design or style in mind that is not shown below, feel free to contact us. We'll be happy to discuss a custom designed display to suit your needs.

    Door pulls available on the right or left side, your choice, depending on the location you have to hang your display. Keyed locks available as well as hand painted wildlife scenes on the door pulls, interior lighting, knife rests made from antler or wood, and your choice of velvet color. Click on "Options Available" in the navigation bar to learn more.

"Matched Set" - Two single door model cabinets built exactly opposite, the same size, to be hung together with a small space between the pair. Seeing the wall with the spacing in between the two cabinets really adds to the overall look and presentation of your collection... a great look, BEAUTIFUL!

This particular matched set is made from solid walnut, each measuring 28" x 18", with dark red velvet backs, optional Randall engraving, optional keyed locks, optional solid walnut knife rests, optional electric fluorescent interior lighting.



Below: "Ambidextrous" style knife rests for a little more versatility. Knives can point either left or right as you desire to show scrimshaw, etc. on a particular knife. Shown below on a cabinet made from solid mahogany.

 Our Deluxe Model Single Door

Shown with custom engraved door rails. This process is time consuming, done with the utmost precision, and the results are absolutely astounding! Custom engraving is also available for those of you wanting your name, initials, maker's name, etc. in place of the RMK design. Logos can be engraved as well, providing we have permission to use them. The "deluxe style" top rail can also be left plain, which also looks very nice with the wood's grain flowing across the face of the piece. A photo directly above is an example of this... the deluxe cabinet in walnut with no engraving, just beautiful grain on the larger surface area.

    A "matched set" is a pair of cabinets the same size and style with door pulls/hinges on the opposite sides. Cabinets with the door pulls on the inside next to each other, or outside away from each other both looks nice and is just personal preference. Hung so spaced slightly apart allowing a few inches of the wall to be seen between them creates a very nice look.
