    For a long time I wanted a Ka-Bar combat fixed blade. I was watching a CajunBlaze video on one and in the comments someone said something along the lines of his
    SOG Seal Pup Elite being way better than the Kabar. Mainluly because it would cut his finger to the bone If he ran his finger across it :rolleyes: .

    In my knife newb ways, I was impressed by this, and the tactical marketing, so I bought one of those instead. Well it wasn't very sharp and I came here to learn how to sharpen it. It was all down hill from there.

    I don't think of myself as a collector. Just a user with many options haha. Buck 110 got me into this.

    It was a vintage Marbles stag handled Ideal that did it for me. I wish I still had it.

    Punks in movies with switchblades. Always thought it would be cool to have one; then stumbled onto this forum.

    I worked in the hunting and fishing dept. in a sporting goods store PT when I was just married. Loved going to work there. I liked the Buck 110 myself but opted for the Puma Game Warden instead. Still have it in a Buck case. Was not yet addicted but being around all those knives must have planted the seed.

    Haha, me too, love that knife. It was my first "real" knife. Still my work EDC.

    Like many others in this thread, I fancy myself as an enthusiast rather than a proper collector.

    SAK, about age 8. Lost it within a week. Been carrying a blade ever since then, though, around six decades now :)o).
