The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Recently purchased a 1974 Smith & Wesson Collector Series knife, Based on the Blackie Collins designed model 6030 Survival knife with beautiful embellishments and limited in number. These Blackie Collins knives are my favorite. When I saw this Collector Series knife, I had to bite the bullet to buy it.
