The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I've been spending quite a bit of time on here and I noticed a lot of people have a direction to there collection.
My collection is all shapes and sizes. So I got to thinking what kind of knife to I want to collect. Just one brand or one style or maybe just one color or type of handle.
But first I need to sell off all the knives that I don't want. So I took a long hard look at my collection. For one reason or another I like all my knives. Once there in the case there mine. Not for sale. Once in a while I'll trade one for another or sell one to buy another better looking one. For the most part though I keep them and look at them pull them out and dust them and put a light coat of oil on the blades and a drop on the hinge. Once in a while I start thinking abut dropping one in my pocket. Usually I end up going out and buying another one just for that purpose. Taking one out and scratching it up and messing up that fine factory edge is just to hard to think about.
So I guess I'll just keep adding anything that catches my eye and adding to my collection. No rhyme or reason except that I love knives all knives from old rusty wooden handles to new bright and shiny ones. the main thing is I collect what I like.
I think most people just might feel just like I do about there collection.
