This is pretty much the way I feel about buying knives. I have a couple of dozen knives eligible for my current 6 knife edc rotation. These range in price from 60.00 to 200.00. My limited editions or more expensive knives I m saving for a special occasion!! Like my William Henry given to me by my wife on a very special occasion. I carried that at my daughter s wedding. I haven t carried it since. I like to look at my high priced or limited edition/discontinued knives, but I don t want to put them to work and risk damaging them. Does this make me a collector? I dont consider myself that. I just like knives.
