    Is this the start of another hobby I cannot afford?

    I somehow have ended up wit this.... sort of became a side collection to a Military Rifles collection from some of the Accessories I needed for those. Found myself getting the Bayonets for those that had lugs and then a fighting knife for the periods and then a few useful knives I had. Then ended up with this very modest assortment of things....



    Starting outer ring from 12:00 and going clockwise and the to inner circle also clockwise...

    Fairbairn & Sykes Fighting Knife - J. Nowell and Sons, Sheffield England,
    V-42 Fighting Knife - Paul Chen, reproduction
    Fairbairn Applegate Desert Storm Fighting knife - Boker
    Scrapper 6 - Scrap Yard
    Utica Cutlery - M1 Garand Bayonet 1943-45 authentic,
    AK47 Bulgarian Bayonet
    M4 - M1 Carbine Bayonet -Conetta, probably Korean War or later vintage,
    Leatherman Core
    Gerber Pathco - Autopsy knife
    Kershaw Blackout
    SOG Tac Auto Tanto.

    I cannot afford another hobby... :(

    Be very very carfull, this becomes much more addictive then collecting guns.
    No you will not be able to afford it in time. Just ask me how I know.

    Ya know... this is unforgivable but I forgot to put the Glock knife in there!

    Guns?

    Well....















    Just to include a few... Most of these obtained in the last year and a half in fear of what is to come for the freedom of my Grand Children.

    I am married to guns but have an affair with knives. Check out Usual Suspect Network to see how sick knives can be. Spending $400 on a knife makes it easier to spend $800 on a gun. Try going to a knife show, they act the way people at gun shows should.

    WOW! All I can say is it's a good thing you aren't into vehicle mods! Another unaffordable hobby? Sheesh! Nice collections one and all! Say....ah, um, you don't reckon there's any possibility we might be related? Possibilities of me getting on your Christmas list? You could be on mine. How you like fruitcake? :)

    Uh... unfortunately I DO restore old Vespa Scooters. Have three of those currently in the shop now and I am also working on this old thing...



    Hence the "another hobby I cannot afford"....

    Beats collecting stamps any day and most of what i've seen should retain or even go up in value!

    Time for me to vote by the way. Almost have enough for a ak i've been looking at. Those bayonets may come in handy if he who must not be named wins!!!
