Thanks iKC Members!

I promise not to get sentimental in this post, so don't worry.....just hang with me though, OK?

We started gathering knife collectors now- what about 4 months ago? Now when I step back and just look at how far our community has come- I am amazed.

Like you, I have to work hard to keep ends meeting. Well, as part of my real job is traveling. That's the bad part (I really don't like to be away from my family), but the good part is what I was able to do today- and that is-… Continue

Need your help to support one of our members!

If you have ever been a slave of something, then you will feel for what one of our members is going through right now. I'm asking you to contact him to encourage him in his quit smoking effort.

To those who don't or haven't ever smoked, quitting smoking probably sounds like a no-brainer and no prob, but if you have quit or tried… Continue

Some people might think I'm Un-American because of how I can appreciate how Russia controlled it's people (touched on in my "You know what's wrong with Society blog).

Well I also love the Russian National Anthem (Red Star Army Chorus) used in this AK-47 video. Their National Anthem is more grandiose, moving, so awe inspiring!!! That's one thing about the good ole' U.S.A. my right to feel and think this… Continue

As promised, here’s a more detailed explanation of the Senate’s passage of Amendment 1447- the act removing the broadening of the Custom & Border Patrol’s definition of a Switchblade.

Instead of attempting to reword and characterize the action, please allow me to provide Doug Ritter’s detailed explanation. Doug is the founder and chairman of Knife Rights- an knife advocacy organization that has been at the forefront of this effort to prevent the proposed ban.…

Long time no see guys! Movie interest, Knife update and teaser!!

On a lighter note.....almost added to my other collection the other day

One of the fun things about iKC is our Groups. The interests represented by all the iKC Groups are all over the board.

Well, not long ago, Anthony (ChanceToFade) started a Group called Other Collections, for folks who have collections, in addition to knives.
