The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel

These are some questions I think, we all ask ourselves, in private. I know some have large collections, some have small and some have everything in between. No matter the size or the value, are you happy with that collection? I know we have all bought a knife here or there, that was a…Continue
Let me preface this by saying I am a typical 60 year old law abiding citizen-In my 20's I worked as a bartender, then in retail management until my retirement- However, I have had people try to kill me with a car ,boulders, knives, hatchets, etc. in what would seem to be a normal life-Not to mention, that Danny Rollings, the Florida serial killer who killed U of Florida coeds was captured in my yard !!

Was a great knife show today as usual. Lots of knives, vendors, and people. Saw and talked with 3 of our members: Jim Thompson, Ken M., and Roger Cunningham. Gina Smith was there to but I couldn't find her. Did not see Adam Archer, he may come tomorrow. Also did not see Charles Reed.
I went down every isle and looked at lots of knives and even bought some.
Which knife do you spend the most money for, a single knife, a fixed blade or a folder.
