Anyone here collect knives? I'm just now getting into it and I bought a Boker Kalashnikov AK-74 and a Smith & Wesson Black Ops. I'm really excited to get them and am already looking to get more. Any suggestions?

I love collecting knives (I started back during my early years in scouts). My personal favorite brand is Benchmade. The blades are incredibly sharp and hold an edge, but the best part about them is that they have no forward or side-to-side play at all.

Though they're a little expensive, they are completely worth it. Very well made, great customer service, and sturdy.

Another favorite of mine are the Buck 110s. These are also great at having no blade play. Mine has a cow bone handle, perfect for the rustic-look.

I don't collect but I do like to have a good quality knife with me. My first real knife was a Kershaw Shallot. Honestly I wish I still had it but I gave it to my friend. It's assisted open so keep that in mind.
The one I have right now is a Kershaw R.A.M. without the serrations. It's a good quality knife with an interesting (but hard to get used to) locking mechanism.

I looked into the Benchmades but figured I'd start out with something a bit cheaper.

I really like the look of a lot of Kershaws and actually considered getting the R.A.M.

I'm just fine with my 2 Victorinox Swiss made knifes (and legal over here). Good at hand for daily jobs (unscrewing battery hatches of toys, opening envelopes).
I don't think I need an army knife to cut a fish open in the wild. Or stab someone.

No need here for a whole knife toolkit that you can't put in your pocket as said.

I don't collect, but I do have a decent knife. The CRKT M16-10 EDC
This one stays in my pocket at all times, and I've carried it for about 3 years now. The locking mechanism is a little awkward the first time, but that blade certainly isn't going to fold up on you during use. The blade keeps pretty darn well, but I've currently got a flat spot I need to take care of sometime.

I was getting into knives quite a bit before I started saving for university. Right now I have;

HK 14440 Ally
SOG Micron II
Spyderco Kiwi 3
Spyderco Cricket (with full serrations)
Spyderco Centofante 3
Spyderco Ladybug 3 Salt


As you can see, I really like Spyderco knives. :lol:

My EDC knife is usally the Spyderco Cricket when I'm at work, because it's small and legal for concealed carry here in California. Although, I usually carry the Spyderco Centofante when I'm out because I like having a larger knife on me.

Hi knife collectors,

How about starting to collect puzzle knives? These are regular knives, where the puzzle is how to open (or close) the knife. A puzzle friend of mine has many. They are a bit scary to play, as they can be razor sharp and I do not how much force o apply and in which direction. I tend to stay out of the way when someone else tries to solve a puzzle knife.

You know what's even scarier? An Oskar's Treasure Chest which conceals a spring-loaded blade that pops out when opened? :shock:



Just kidding, of course...
