To all iKC and NKCA Members- My decision to serve on the NKCA Board of Directors

Today I was approached to fulfill a vacancy on the board of directors for the National Knife Collectors Association for the balance of the term which runs through the end of 2011.  I agreed to allow my name to be submitted to other board members for confirmation.


I agreed to be considered for the NKCA board for several reasons:

  • I care about our hobby and about the NKCA.
  • I have a passion to help spread the word about how much fun our hobby is. In the…

The Future of Organized Knife Collector Associations

I've been struggling with trying to see what the future of our traditional knife clubs and associations looks like.


For years, our local clubs provided a social gathering for like-minded collectors. Then you also have the regional and national associations providing certain benefits to their members in exchange for dues. These benefits included, among other things, newsletters/magazines, organized knife shows, club knives and identity.


Now it seems these…

Disturbing news. Need your help if you joined iKC recently

I received some disturbing news today- from two different collectors who have attempted to join our community and, for some reason, weren't able to get through the process.


I'm working with both these collectors to get them to try again and document for me what is happening at the step they encounter a problem. One man reported it and I received a cc on his…

Sunday Drives and the iKC Community

One of the aspects I love about our community is the wide range of knife interests represented by our members. When you have time take a stroll through the member list and read each member's profile and their interests. It is easy to see collector niche's range from advertising knives to old bowies, tactical to high-end customs and I…

Case Collectors Reunion & Grand Collectors Auction was a blast!

iKC is home of a very diverse group of knife enthusiasts. All you have to do is set the photos to slide show and you will see. Because of our wide range of knife likes, not everyone here is a traditional pocketknife collector, per se, and yet, Case is one of the most popular knife companies in the world, so I thought I'd share a couple of things about my trip.

Yesterday I returned from my trip to Bradford, Pa. where I attended the W R Case Collector Reunion. It is…

The National Knife Collectors Association needs our support

When I first started collecting knives one of the first things I did was to join the National Knife Collectors Association (NKCA). While I've yet to purchase an annual club knife, I have attended various NKCA sponsored shows and meetings, including board meetings, out of support for this organization.

The NKCA is a good thing. It is headed up by folks who have a genuine interest in promoting our hobby of knife collecting.

I understand…

We know you are out there!

There is no doubt, iKC is different than any other knife place on the web. The members here feel like they are sitting down across from each other in a friendly place to talk and show our common interest- knives.

In fact, I love fellow iKC member Steve Wells quote- "What a fantastic way to meet collectors. It is like they are coming in your own house, and having a cup of coffee." To me that's iKC in a peach-seed. :)

But what you may not realize and the reason I've… Continue

iKC Member Appreciation

I must take a second to say, "Thank You" for becoming a part of the iKnifeCollector Community.

We're not quite two weeks old yet, and I am very pleased how our community has been received and supported. I knew it was going to be different for most collectors- a lot more interactive and even more personal, than anything else in the online knife world. Because of that I didn't quite know how it was going to go over.

Your feedback is very encouraging. Two messages… Continue
