We need to get this guy to join iKC.  Does anyone on iKC have this many knives?

From the story it was pretty obvious that at least some of his knives were cheap ones.

Yeah, I heard about this  Daniel Koster posted the story on his Facebook feed a couple days back. So, the story, & the guy, have caught the attention of at least one serious maker.

I haven't seen any photos of the guy's collection, except the colorful blurs behind the dojo-owner/knife collector.

2 things though: First, 2,200 hardly seems record-breaking. Second, I bet we COULD get close top that with a couple hundred dollars & a few Frost Cutlery sets from Cutlery Corner -- but that doesn't mean we SHOULD.

Wow! I thought I had a big collection until seeing this!

That is true. I have nearly a thousand but many are just not up to par with other's and i would not want to consider them as real 'collector quality'.
Quantity certainly doesn't make a collection.

Like Dale says, whether you have only a few, that you're proud of, or hundreds, makes no difference.

Over the years I've gone from an accumulation to a collection. There's a big difference. Still have most of my old accumulation but they aren't included in what I would call my collection.
