You show me yours and I'll show you mine...

Oct 2, 1998
I want to see just how many knives you knuts own. In the six months that I've been collecting, I've amassed quite a colection of super-sharp things. I want to see the total number of folders, fixed blades, swords, and multi-tool you guys have. I'd also like you to name your favorites (that you presently own) in each category and tell how long you've been collecting.

I'll start off...

Folders (14) including:
EDI Genesis
Microtech SOCOM
Chris Reeve small Sebenza
REKAT Pioneer
Spyderco Wayne Goddard Jr.
BM 3500 Mel Pardue auto
BM Leopard Cub
various others...
BTW - I've also sold three others in order to acquire my first custom (Carson Model 4 on order).

Multi-tools - (4)
Leatherman WAVE
Leatherman Micra (two)

FB's and swords - none yet, but definately in my future plans...

So come on, 'fess up. Once you add 'em up, are you suprised at how many you actually have? I sure was.

Well Senator...

I used to have a lot of Spyderco & Benchmades but I sold everything but a Police (sentimental value) and got this:

SOCOM M/A Black Blade Plain
SOCOM D/A Black Blade Serra (in the mail)
Mini SOCOM (maybe one day)
Hawk in the factory to fix the blade
Commander with custom scales (smooth G-10)
Large Decorated Sebenza
Pat Crawford's Kasper
Kestrel (soon)
Bali-song 35s (for cracks & giggles)
And a custom collaboration between Reese & I for a fixed blade "hawk"

Joel Pirela
Graphic & Knife Designer

I own a spydie ladybug and a mini-SOCOM M/A.

Aren't I sad? Well fear not, I've got a calypso jr. and a ladybug2 in the mail, and by this time next year I expect to be bankrupt and pushing around a shopping cart full of knives. Watch for me!

It was a very expensive year !!! Lets see how my accountant can write this off.

I would need a seperate web site for that. Anyway you can see a few of my knives which I will be posting in the individual for sale forum later tonight.

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

OK, this looks like fun:

2 AlMar QuicksilverV 5.5" linerlocks. The one knife I'm least likely to be without, I own two because they're long out of production. VERY rare I wear both.

Cold Steel Vaquero Grande with personal mods. I have a homebrew "shoulder holster" rig for it.

Mad Dog WSP1, a rare ATAK variant (forward serrations).

Harald Moeller "Viper II" thrower. Bought both to learn to throw and to closely examine Harald's work prior to having The Outsider show up. VERY good work, BTW.

The Outsider - my design, Moeller built, Scott Evans sheathwork. See previous posts for pics. Carried VERY often, literally my "dream knife".

Mutant grafted together Muskrat folder made out of two CRKT Apaches. Carried if I face a 4" blade limit.

Gerber Multipliers (old, non-lock) with hex drive.

Mad Dog Axe. A one-off "woodsman" type unrelated to the Hawk/Raven. Kevin held it up at Knifignugen, said "first $50 takes it" and I figured a Mad Dog *anything* was worth that.

19th century Engineer's shortsword, 16" blade, strong and in combat capable condition. Sheath has matching regimental marks, may be Dutch.

Sword blade ground by Alan Folts, not yet mounted. Trying to finish it this month...should make a splendid "use and abuse" piece.

OLD Japanese sword blade, theft recovery just weeks ago after a year gone, I've got *very* special plans for the former roomie thief. Pre-dates 1864, I'm trying to get a more solid appraisal. I may sell it, I was told it was early 20th century production and I wasn't shopping for a "wallhanger antique".

And that's it, and I'm not currently shopping except eventually I'll upgrade tools. Probably the Spydie...

Well I had to sit down and count!
In all the catagories combined I have eighty-two pieces . Choosing a favorite is almost impossible ! Here are a few that are at the top of the list;
Emerson Commander
Emerson Raven
Spyderco Civilian
Gerber Paul knife
Microtech M/A SOCOM
BM 3500
Spyderco Cricket ( great money clip)
Kissing Crane Stilletto (KC 45) - because it gets tons of comments !
Well I could go on but they can't all be favorites , or could they ?
Here's mine:

Large Sebenza
MAD DOG Panther (at the hard chromer's)

not to many,but here it is:
thats about it for now,but probably
going to buy something at the custom
show in n.y. in march, something in a
tanto blade.

Well, here are the ones worth mentioning:

BM 330 Gent
BM Leopard Cub
Boye Basic III
Spyderco Calypso Jr.
Spyderco Mini-Dyad
Victorinox Tinker
William Henry Carbon Fiber Lancet
William Henry Spearpoint with bone scales (my latest aquisition and a VERY nice knife, I have to say)

I thought I was starting to collect too many knives, but it's nothing compared to some of the others here! It gives me a rationalization to go out and buy more!

I really feel inadequate here, posting such a *small* list

BM Leopard Cub with a purple handle (this was bought to cut the umbilical cord of my second son)
EDI Genesis
Mini-SOCOM (soon to be)
