    And Santa brought me these - I guess I had been nice (there is actually watch content in the pic if you are hawk-eyed)

    So you can't wear any watches if you are a collector? ;)

    New to the forum and saw this great topic. I've carried a pocket knife since I was a few years old, and I'm sure many of you remember when you could carry a knife in school, and no one panicked. I'll try to get some photos, but my knives these days tend to be Benchmade and Spyderco. They make some great knives, and the s30v steel is outstanding.

    My first love (and collection) was from pocket knives! Here are a few of my favorites from my collection. Nowadays, my knife collecting has slowed. I'm quite happy with my collection as it stands. The watch bug has bitten me HARD and I prefer saving (and subsequently spending) resources on timepieces as opposed to pocket knives.

    Well I tell you what mate... you'd be really pissed off in the UK. We don't even allow the police to walk around with guns. We give them a stick, a 'crackly' radio, handcuffs and then kick their 5 foot 3inch arses out onto the street wearing a hat that looks like a robot's tit::confused2::

    I uh...really like knives. Here's some, not all, that I've received this month. These have been sitting on my side table as I haven't moved them to their home in a glass case yet since I'm still getting to know them.

    I carry both a modern Flipper and traditional knife daily. My edc Flipper this week was a Shirogorov Hati in elmax.

    I'm not a collector more of a accumulator type. I have hunting knifes from randall,marbles, pocket knifes from various makers. Most of the time I carry a pen knife or if I want something bigger I like this zt with the wave feature. The knifes that have served me very well is a swiss army knife with a lot of bells and whistles and the old case pen knife
