    I was looking for a particular knife to open a package that came this morning. as i was looking for it i realised i had loads of other knives within reach.
    So i was wondering.....without taking your butt of the chair you are sitting in, how many knives can you pick up.
    You can stretch, but not get up. If you are standing, you can reach but not take a step.

    I'm shocked and a little embarrassed to say i can reach 49. :)

    I have a problem...lol

    I'm glad you said 49 because I was thinking 15 was a lot. :)

    Of course my Fondling Table is right here.

    Nice pop quiz!

    For me, two - A small fixed blade (FF Esquire) and a small folder (GEC 62).

    I always carry one locking knife and a SAK bantam on me
    If have have my keys, I also have a SAK rambler

    that is it.... unless I am in the kitchen or if I have my knives box at hand

    So for me it is 2-3 in most case

    Well, my computer is in my office and my knives are in my bedroom so it will be a low number for me.

    3. SAK and LM Charge MT on me. Spyderco Centofante 4 in my desk. It's my letter opener.

    Without getting out the chair 7 knives, 1 spyderco double stuff, 1 dia-fold coarse/fine, and a loupe. Compared to 49 I feel like a rookie.

    At least 29 at my desk. There may be a few buried in the pile that are unaccounted for in a quick survey. Plus 12 machetes I can reach withoit getting out of my chair.
