People's interests don't always last. I got here one short year ago, and in that time I've bought and sold a few "expensive" knives (although that's relative) and owned about ten knives. I've since sold off all but three. I remember seeing a member on the Exchange selling a batch of knives, and he called it, "A Moment of Clarity Sale." I laughed at that because it also occurred to me that I had some real money tied up in knives that I wasn't using. I realize it's a hobby, and hobbies don't have to make "sense." Undeniably, there's something compelling about a well-designed knife, and new people come into the hobby all the time, but I believe people leave the hobby just as regularly, as practicality and money play a role in continuation. I still admire them - just unsure whether I'm going to buy any more of them.
