Other than keeping it in a sealed sleeve/wrapper, what would be the best thing? Assume I would constantly take it in and out as.
I think it's a matter of opinion - you will probably get many collectors to chime in here. But I'm honestly starting to think it's best to leave them bare so nothing rubs or scratches them and to just handle them carefully.

Leaving them bare… Urgh I dunno it just feels so…. Bare? Lol. Especially putting them in a bookshelf I'm scared it will definitely scratch

I've scratched a few of mine just opening them. They will get damaged from shelf ware just leave them sealed until you get something to put them in

These three posts show great examples of the fully covered sleeves. That's the best protection you can get. SteelbookCentral is UK based I believe so that might be your best bet

Jude72 gives some more options here for different types of packagings

Yeah after some reading SC may be the way to go, despite some users having bad customer service from em and saying that Blu-Steels perhaps may be better quality; BS shipping is just too much for me.

Now to decide between SC1 and SCF2 if I want fully enclosed, or SC2 and SC3. I was under the impression fully enclosed steelbooks sealed all sides and it made it impossible to take in and out when you wanted, which obviously isn't the case.

What are the differences between SC1/SCF2 and SC2/SC3

Yeah, the fully enclosed still have a flap that you can open and retrieve them when you want to. I think the difference between them is basically the thickness. Some will fit naked steels better where sealed steels wouldn't go in. Others fit sealed steels better where naked steels would have too much room to move around. Those posts should show the differences. I don't have any direct dealing with SC Sleeves

Ah right thanks

Now to get over my fear of a scratch being causes by sliding the SB in and out of the sleeves

I'm assuming SCF2's will fit HDzeta's that have the books within the slips?
