I like to collect knives. My reason is just for something to do and I like them. I like them because they represent the most basic tool of mankind. It feels as though the two things that started all mankind is a knife and fire. What better combo than a survival knife with flint? Anyways. I don’t want just a mass collection of knifes; I like to collect unique functioning knives. There’s the liner-locker, back-lock, button release, butterfly, switchblade (argh.. illegal..), bowie, throwing, multi-tool, etc. etc. etc. There’s plenty of variations and I’d like to have one of each kind. I’m only an amateur, so there isn’t a heck of a lot in my collection. However, I feel it’s a good start..
Note the bottom right multi-tool. This multi-tool I have had since I was 11 years old. My friends gave it the name “Stab-atha” in high school. I’ll keep it as long as I can, even though it’s already lost it’s cover that was glued onto it. As for my favourite knives; the swiss army and fulcrum knife. Now I just want some better survival blades and fixed knives.. not to mention a better way of storing them!
