About Me
Amateur collector, love kershaws and ZTs for the variety of designs and reasonable prices, but also very quickly leqrnimg about higher end knives worthy of collecting. My kershaw collection may not be full of high dollar knives, but it's cool to me.

oh man when are you on I love to talk to you I think your the only guy who understands me!!!! I have collected 1 1/2 years only.  Im after the high grade steel ones that are discontinued I'm trying to get the speed bump so bad!!!! Just yesterday I got a kershaw zing that was another one that haunted me. except for the grey speed bump I think I'm done with the sandvik in this collection I cant think of anymore to get in that steel if you got a speed bump to spare or know someone who's got one let me know. either way I'm happy to chat about my addiction! your about me section sounds like mine!!! i'm concentrating on kershaw for now so far I have 26 knives all new in box. cant wait to hear from you!
