About Me
My name's Andrew, I'm 18 years old, and live in the Central Valley.
I've been collecting knives for approximately the last 7 years. On the other hand I've had my magic hobby for the last 10 years.
I received my very first pocket knife (of which I can remember) when I was in 1st grade (6 years old). It was black with an image of a Grizzly Bear on the front and the size is easily comparable to that of a Victorinox Classic. To this day, I still have this knife working and in good condition.
I still buy/collect knives. I have an estimated 60-70 knives in my collection, of those about one-third are of superior quality. I buy and use them whether they're considered crappy or not. As long as the knife is suitable for my needs, then it's a keeper.

Hey Andrew- hope all is well. Did you see the Blade Show vid over at Cutlery News Journal's YT Channel? If not check it out when you can. Think you'll like it. I did it after the show.

Hey Andrew,
Welcome to the community. It is always good to have someone who enjoys the same knives. Check out the Tactical Collectors Club and similar discussions. I subscribed to your Youtube channel. Enjoy.
