    If you ask my wife, she will say too many, and then go on a hysterical rant about my having too many knives, and then go on a hysterical rant telling me to stop buying knives, and then scream at me to do something with all my knives , and then go in the living room and pout while me and my little guy sharpen our knives.

    Same here, but I have twin girls. She doesn't understand...yet. Even when I sell a knife to buy another I get the business.

    Knives? This is a knife forum?

    Does a spork with a sharp edge count?

    Okay, Okay ... I'm not sure how many I really have ... All I know I find myself buying higher and higher end knives and not parting with any of the quality, lower end knives in my "collection" .. although I don't think of myself as a collector.

    I have scaled down my collection over the past couple of years. I guess I have about twenty-five, maybe thirty knives if you do not count blades for the kitchen.

    Recently, I changed my thinking about how I purchase knives. In the past, if I found a knife that I liked, I would buy it with no thought to need or purpose. Now, I have groups that I place the knives into. Dress, light, medium, and heavy duty, fixed blade, etc. My goal is to have one knife of each basic blade style in every group, however, I am finding that I don't want or need every blade style. For example, clip point knives, I only have three. Two folders and a fixed blade. My light duty clip point can cover as a dress knife and the fixed blade will fill the heavy duty class just fine.

    Anybody else use a system like this? Has it worked for you?

    Fifty or sixty folders, and fifteen or so fixed blades. I need to downsize some, honestly.
