    My Small Start


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This is my collection so far. Being 14 I do not have much money, so my collection isn't the greatest. Any recommendations for my next knife to add to the collection? Enjoy.

    My Leatherman Juice S2 and 2005 Case Texas Toothpick


    My fixed blades. From top to bottom: 1943 Robeson Shuredge Mark 2, SOG Seal Pup Elite, A blade my dad bought with an ebony handle he made, and a Gerber Guardian.

    Nice start. The Sog Seal Pup Elite was the knife that started it all for me. Now I am in this terrible addiction .
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    Looks like you are off to a good start. I think you should add a couple more folders to the collection. The Spyderco Tenacious is a pretty popular budget-friendly folder and the Buck Vantage series are some excellent US made knives for the money.

    You have some very nice knives. Yes, I would add a folder or two. I'm rather fond of Spyderco.

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I've had my eyes on the Kershaw Chive or a customized griptillian. Yes or no to either of those?

    Both are excellent knives. The Griptilian is significantly larger than the Chive though and is manual rather than assisted. The normal answer here would be: "get both!"
    If you want to pick just one, I'd say get whichever you think you would find more "useful" or fitting for what you want/need. If you want a very small, affordable EDC blade, get the Chive. If you want a bit better steel and prefer a larger blade, get the Griptilian. I think you will enjoy either one.

    I think you should continue with the orange theme.

    Spyderco has a couple orange knives, and Benchmade has some orange knives, including full size and mini griptilians. The Triage also comes with orange handles.

    Kershaw's Packrat comes in orange folding and orange fixed.

    Very nice start!! A stupid Robeson slippie started me when I was a kid. I think you should trade me for the Robeson fixed. How bout a Manix 2?!?

    Lookin' good!
    I have both a Kershaw Chive AND a Griptilian.
    They are both really good, and you would be just fine with either.
    It's hard to pick one I like them both so much.
    In fact, my Griptilian is orange.

    Dude! I didn't have that good of a collection at 14, wow.
    If I was you - knowing what I know now- id start getting classic folders that you can carry. Like a Spyderco endura, Para Military, or benchmade griptilian.

    When you graduate high school, you can start collecting in the $300 - $1200 range. That's when the real sickness sets in.
