    Seriously. I need to save myself from....myself. I have 2 WE knives, 2 Spydercos and 2 Cold Steels on the way via order and pre-order.

    I tried to get out of the house and fish, but everybody else has the same idea. The usual fishing spots look like the local walmart. LOL! So, my money is going to knives and guns. LOL!

    Anybody else stacking knives during this odd time?

    5 or 6 and two sets of scales. I'm up to 40 or 50 knives.
    I need to stop OR sell some and buy some more.

    One Case Copperlock is all, but there are a few Cheburkovs and a weird Maserin that have caught my eye lately....

    Still working here as well(electrician). But, the usual spots that we blow money are either closed or curbside. So, I've got LOTS of time to talk myself into purchases. LOL!

    Oh man! Box elder burl is my obsession. I have several guns with grips in box elder burl but no knives. That HAS to change.

    Yeah, its bad when I just sit around and look at knives all day... Then I start cutting up every piece of wood I can find, until my wife starts calling me "beaver boy".

    Just to spite her I bought 3 more knives.

    One LT Wright Illuminous 5
    Two Bark River Bravo Alphas

    I bought something to keep me entertained, though I don’t think you can call it a knife.


    I definitely didn’t need a Katana, but I’m having a blast slicing through every weed and cardboard box I’ve come across. I should give Cold Steel it’s props too, it came straight, sharp, and very useable out of the box. I’ve even been trying to learn how to swing it properly.

    Let's see...

    A Small Sebenza PJ, Lunar Landing Large Sebenza, a Hinderer XM-18 which I traded for a pair of big ol' Spyderco's and scales.. A piddly Gerber, a Spyderco Techno (that one is for someone else, though), Spyderco Mule, a couple PM2 sprints, a SOG fixed blade, an Ultratech, a Bugout...

    Yeah that's bad. I'm planning on selling stuff now though lol.
