How long have you collected knives?
Favorite Kind of Knives
Kershaw, G&G Hawk, CRKT, Spyderco, & Benchmade (From Favorite To Least, Left To Right)
I have a huge collection. I also sell Knives along with Antiques and Collectibles. Im in the process of opening up a used knife shop online once I finally pull the trigger and figure out how tomgo about creating a web page these days! I have plenty of inventory and the majority of my sales at the moment are through eBay, Face Book, 5 MILE, and the OFFER UP app.
I collect unique knives with unique locking mechanisms which has drawn me to collect a lot of CRKT models. At first it was Kershaw for me. I began to admire Ken Onion and started collecting his Onion series until I realized that the 1660 Leek was my favorite. I soon began to collect as many versions of the Leek that I could get my hands on and soon realized how many different variations there truly are lol! Although I did slow down a bit, they remain my favorite collectible knife and I still buy them when I come across the ones that I dont have. I have over 100 different versions of the Kershaw leek in my collection today! As my collection grew I began to collect a lot more discontinued Kershaw models than anythin else. I spkn realized that in order to collect exactly what im most passionate about that I would have to give up on other Knife brands that i started collecting in my earlier knife collecting days. I knew I wouldnt be able to afford to keep such an amazing collection going and add to it if I continued collecting every single name I liked! So i try my hardest to keep it to about 4 or 5 of them today! My collection has grown tremendously this past year. I began looking more into customs tpby my favorite makers and designers. I wish I had more info on how to aquire some of the customs ive seen, but Its hard and very expensive! I soon began to admire Grant and Gavin Hawk since I found out a lot of info about them through their collaboration with a few of my favorites such as Kershaw and CRKT. Not to mention my passion for unique locks and mechanisms! Them two areabsolute genious!
