The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I have collected knives, not seriously, for many years, but now I would like to create a collection that can be added to on a regular basis and that has some semblance of meaning to me. I am thinking about concentrating on Trappers and Barlow as they appear to me to be what I like in a knife. Does this make sense or is it better to just buy what you like when you see it? It seems to me that if I concentrate on a particular type of knife I am not tied down to a particular brand. My preference so far is Case, Rough Rider, and Boker. That pretty much covers the world. I would like to hear your thoughts on this matter and have you help me explore this huge subject.
Wow! Lars, that is a great little collection and the box itself is collectible to me. Sometimes picking up something like that and making just a few part of your collection and selling of the rest helps you afford to grow the collection.
