As hobbies go, the knife hobby is pretty affordable. My brother got into Lionel trains. He probably still is but his house burnt down and all the trains, guns, and everything else went up in smoke. I don't know if he got back into the Lionel train thing. I even bought him a few cars to add to his layout.I definitely agree that the knife hobby is definitely a very affordable one, especially the traditional side with loads of options under $60 and endless amounts of vintage users to be had for $20 or less, of course it can be pricy but still less expensive than a lot of other things
My brother got into RC cars a few years ago and that only lasted about a year as he soon realized that good or bad they're all expensive. Even at $200 the Traxxis cars he was buying were not that great and he could not afford to nor did he know how to overhaul them like the true hobbyists do.
My older brother has turned into a "bird watcher" and has made a great deal of effort over a fairly large area to look for and photograph birds. I envy his pictures. The ones I see are really good. Photography to me is a hobby, a serious one, but still a hobby.
