I was thinking how tough it would  be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be. 


I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow  the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do not guarantee that I will do anything to cure myself.

How many ways are there to hide this addiction? A secret stash out in the barn or in the outhouse? Or is it a longing look when others aren't watching?

Craig, I would think that it's required, if you want to remain stable. LOL

I'm an enabler hanging around with enablers. Do I have that right?

Jan, I think there's a book in the making. "How I Became An Enabler Through Spiritual Awakening" The story of a woman who heard a voice, climbed a mountain, and returned, bearing a laptop with a message from above,                              "Ye shall all collect knives."

With comments from her flock of followers.

Along the lines of Craigs obession.

I have found I have a complex compulsion with a burning desire to fullfil my dreams of a wonderful knife collection. OK, some may say that is a problem

Step two is to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore sanity...started hanging around with Knife Makers

Step Three is continue to take personal inventory and when wrong promptly correct it....cant have the wrong tang stamp with that Case knife in your inventory list

Step Four Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, I bought a knife site to carry this message to other addicts, and now we all collect knives

Somewhere I think a wrong turn LOL

Scatch that...these steps only make you enjoy being an enabler

IMO--  fun knife collecting is when im the most responsible about it. 

i think a way to help CURB anyones buying is 2 things. if your asking for help...LOL...

first ask yourself "does buying knives ever put me in a jam".. i dont mean a 5$ jam... i mean have you actually put of paying a bill to grab a knife,,im not judging..i have been their....LOLOLOL!

a knife "i have to have..and for years" hits ebay the same week a small 75$ cable bill i can shuve off for 2 weks to get knife..SURE!..- THIS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE KNIFE COLLECTING and can make collecting IMO-not fun.

another thing that may help is DECIDING??... what pattersn,ciolors,makers,countires,states,vintage,tac,little of everything...   BUT DO YOURSELF A FAVOR IF YOU HAVENT ALREADY... LOG YOUR KNIFE COLLECTION ALONG WITH PRICES..   also like i have aid in the past... are you collecting... or making a massive pile of blades?,... their is a huge difference.

Hmmm.......how about the feel of a good sharp edge cutting through a material? I love that feel. I love the look and feel of the handle and materials. I love the weight and heft of the metal in my hand. I love having a useful tool with me everywhere. I love everything about knives. 

Thank you Clay, I just realized I'm not addicted......I'm obsessed!
