i was inspired by another thread; i, too, have a blade addiction that i can't afford. thankfully, seeing pics of knives helps quench my thirst for new knives. so, i'll show you mine if you show me yours!
I don't have pictures of my knives and if I did they would probably block up this sight. I have about 1,000 knives, haven't counted them. Most are Military.
I have a small collection of Audra Draper knives (first woman to earn her Master Smith stamp) I have knives of hers that start with apprentice all the way to Master. I own her Master Smith test Bowie.
Collecting is a disease, a type of obsesive compulsive. When I see an antique military knife I just have to have it, even if I have 10 like it.
I was trying to put together a collection of Leveraction Winchester rifles, but the prices skyrocked. I have retreated to buying more knives.
Here are the ones of mine that have lanyards on them....I have a bunch of other....I'll have to get around to getting them all together for a 'family picture'......

I need to take some new pictures with more of my knives. Here's what I have handy.
This is a WWI bayonet that was cut down and carried as a fighting knife in WWII.
This one started as a WWI Turkish bayonet and was then cut down for use in WWII. After WWII it was sent to Israel and used in their war of independence.
This last one isn't mine. Alex Nossar made it and I think it's nicely done.
Bleeding-heart reporter: “Do you feel that violence begets violence?”
Jeff Cooper: “It is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure - and in some cases I have - that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more than he can enjoy."
Here's mine. This is only about a third of my collection that I've had a chance to photograph.
Nothing fancy, the one on the left is more of a collectors knife. The one on the right is a folding knife I carry daily.
I picked up this little Cutey Pie just a few minutes ago...
Buck Special 119
Noname chinese steel knife I bought at some shop for $5
My collection is still pretty small.
I'm sorry I don't have a camera, I plan on buying one in a few months it just isn't a priority right now.
I don't carry a blade...But the pictures here are very nice!!!
Which is clearer?
Buck Ghost Rider on top of a Surefire 6P LED Defender. Sturdy knife, doesn't hold an edge very well, but mine's seen a ton of abuse too. It's too bulky, though, and once I find a couple tiny screws and spaces I'll be going back to a Gerber Paraframe for a general-purpose pocket knife.
I don't know if this is a dumb question, but what is with what appears to be a zip tie on some of the thumb holes?
