"I believe that it is stories like this that start us collecting. I mean
collecting is not just about amassing things, its that the things spark
some hidden memory, both good and bad, that we tie to the items.
And watching "Christmas…"
"Years ago when we asked my father what he wanted for christmas he told
us "all I want for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun". Well he did not know
that Daisy had just come out with the Red Ryder comm. rifle. So on xmas
"I may have mentioned this before, but my favorite knife is the Queen #9A.
My first memories of seeing a knife was when my father purchased a new
Queen 3 blade stockman with the amber or yellow handles and I thought
it was a beauty. I…"
"I have to admit, I have a disease, it does not matter if it has bone, or plastic, or stag, or exotic wood, or
gems, or no handles at all. I love them all. A knife is not just a tool it is a testament to mans engineering
"The stag on that knife is awful pretty and the quality of the Rough Rider series of knives has always been at the top
for knives in their price range. They may even equal knives in the price range above them. "
"Thanks for the compliments and I too buy Rough Riders because of the materials they use for handles and the patterns
that they make. The one you show is a beauty and one I don't beleive I have. Here is a picture of a couple."

Favorite Kind of Knives
54 year old IT Tech, though I was schooled as a Draftsman and worked for over half my career as one, living in central Ms on the Ms River.
Married to the same woman for 35 years with 2 grown boys.
My collection is various in nature, when I see a knife that I like the looks of I usually buy it. Most of my purchases are production not custom.
It seems that I sometimes I just can't help myself and go and purchase a gun, usually a handgun, more than likely over .40 in caliber. I also have a small collection of 1/18 scale diecast cars, mostly 60's and 70's muscle and somehow a M48 & M4 tank and a M3 Half-Track.
