I have sold and traded a few , lately. In fact, a few were knives I had most covetted before I actually owned them....Randall, MT, Sebenza etc. Some have been replaced with other knives...some paid bills.
Do I miss them ? No, not really. My interests have evolved and I hardly ever had those knives out to fondle any more...let alone, use.
There are still, knives I covet and will, I hope, acquire when my finances improve.

But, as I have often said ,I am not a "real" collector.....more an "accumulator". Novelty still plays a part in my selection of knives....when that wears off, I tend to drift back to knives I want to use.
And, I suppose, local knife laws narrow down my selection of "users".
Getting older may have helped (?) in the evolution of my tastes.
I still love knives.....but I no longer want them ALL. And the ones I want are not, necessarilly, the currently "fashionable " ones.
