American-born Japanese. I personally do not know any other Asians who collect knives. Much less carry and use them. Except for my late father, who carried various pocketknives and an old Buck 110 at work. Then again, I know few non-Asians who are into knives, either. Those few who are aware of my interest in knives think it's weird. As if my reason for carrying is the chance to go all "Jason" on someone.
