I've been doing a lot of thinking about what it is exactly that draws me to knives so much that it is an obscession. I don't think there is an hour out of the day I don't think about or actually handle one of my knives. Is is the form or the function. I don't really do any heavy cutting with my knives other than an occasional box and most of the time my knives are in my closet or my pocket (except when I get a moment to get one out and flick it open. Other that the few times that the knife is actually cutting something, it is functionless. So again, why are we drawn to knives.
