    I'm a big Cold Steel fan, so my collection is pretty predictable. I've got a 3-inch Voyager, an X2 6-inch serrated Voyager, a black Scimitar folder, a double-edge Triple Action, a Master Tanto, a Black Bear Classic, an R1 Military Classic, a Black Sable :)D), a clip-point Arc-Angel, an Ultimate Hunter, a 5-inch tanto-point Twistmaster, a San Mai Trailmaster, and some other odds and ends---still lookin for the Shinobu though. :( I've also got a Spyderco Lil' Temperance, an S30V Military, a Chinook II, and a Buck 110 from Cabela's with the CPM S30V blade heat treated by Paul Bos. I think this is pretty decent for a 14-year-old Boy Scout. What are the center pieces of your collection?

    Benchmade 3550, black, partial seration
    Benchmade 9050, black, partial seration
    2 Kershaw "Military" boot knives
    Kershaw Leek, black, partial seration
    and a Ka-Bar tanto

    these are all great knives, I would reccomend them to anyone, the Ka-Bar, however, is not what I need in a knife. I can't carry it around, as with my other knives I do carry 3 at any given time. I didn't like the Kershaw boot knives sheath setups they came with. The plastic sheaths had loops on the point end, which rubbed my ankles the wrong way. The nylon webbing was crap, so I threw it all away. I had a local leather shop make me a pair of rigs that I can use IWB, OWB, ankle w/ support, or simply iside the boot. Good knives, and with any Benchmade, you can not go wrong. Kershaws are great for the money. Sorry, but these are the only knives I have any real experience with.

    Buck 110
    Spyderco Dragonfly
    Spyderco Manix
    Opinel No8
    Opinel No8 Gardening Model
    Victorinox Classic (5 or so)
    Victorinox Rambler
    Victorinox Escort
    Victorinox Bantam
    Victorinox Nylon Solo
    Wenger Handmyan x2
    Colt C17 Skinner
    Frosts Mora 760mg
    Ontario SP2 Marine Combat

    SAKs are by far my favorite types of knives. They carry well, they're hardly ever an issue with cops or sheeple, they have thin flatground blades which is my favorite type of blade geometry and the tools extend their scope of use far past a typical folding pocket knife.

    The 110 and Manix are my larger folders. Both are excellent knives. I like the blade on the Manix better and the ergos are amazing, but overall the 110 just has a great, classic feel with plenty of heft to compare with the Manix.

    Opinels are another of my favorite knives. I'd like to get more to customize. I really like the feel of the wooden handles and their blades are similar to SAKs, which is to my liking.

    The fixed blades don't see much action. The Mora comes with me when I go to the woods sometimes, but usually I do fine with a SAK or Opinel. The Ontario prettymuch got regulated to sharpening experiments. It's bigger than anything I ever need to carry and pretty damn tactical looking to boot, bad combination. The Colt, for a knife that'd be looked down upon here is a pleasure to use. It's got wonderful ergonomics and nice wood handles, but the blade is a bit thicker than it should be. The jimping on the spine is so pronounced that it can double as a saw. Sounds like it should tear up the thumb, but it's not uncomfotable surprisingly. Takes a keen edge and the 440 holds up fine. Not bad for 30$ at normal price, though I got it discounted 25%.

    I'm at work so I don't have model numbers but from memory:

    10 or 11 Benchmades (I prefer the big Axis locks) fixed and folding
    1 Hideaway Straight
    20+ Cold Steel fixed & folding
    8 or 9 Spydercos
    around 10 CRKT
    2 Byrds
    4 KaBars (2 old school, 2 of the great new big ones)
    2 SOG
    4 Bucks
    2 Strider Bucks
    3 Teknas
    2 Case
    3 Colts
    2 authentic Japanese pre WWII Katanas (war trophies from my grandpop)
    Gil Hibben throwers
    Assorted junkers and snoozers.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot. My favorites by far are the Benchmades and the Strider Bucks. I just got my Hideaway and I love it. I really want a some real Stiders, Emersons, MODs and Microtechs- Extrema Ratio and TOPS too. There are several custom makers out there that I really want stuff from but I just don't have the money. I'm hopelessly addicted to Cold Steel everything and refuse to go to their website any more.

    Basically I'm a huge dork.
