    I missed one oh well there are 1,000 more on ebay.

    I have always liked knives but I think I am going to start really buying some now. Why not.

    Life long love affair. As a kid, I thought Tarzan was gay, then I sat back and contemplated a guy with nothing but a loincloth and a knife making it in a jungle. Carried one every day since then.

    Right now, I'm experiencing swelling in my external genetalia thinking about the Cold Steel Spartan due out in July.

    Just got my first Benchmade because all the guys rave about them here, wasn't disappointed. Scary sharp, solid knife.:cool:

    Tango,I know what you mean. I have always liked nice knives,especially handmade knives with unique/exotic wood or bone handles. I have bought 7-8 more in the last couple weeks,I think I need to go to a shrink-I can't stop buying them. My Brother in law and another friend got me into collecting knives and they have some amazing collections.

    I used to have several knives but now I do not have any any more. I figured I just do not need any. Indeed I rarely need a knife.

    Here you go this guy makes some super nice knives.

    McCroskey Custom Knives

    I have personally seen a set of his. They are so sharp you have to be careful putting them back in the leather sheath or you will slice right threw it.

    OMG i just got my Kershaw assisted opening knife. I think I am in love. it is so nice to have a knife that opens right now.

    The handle has plenty of grip but it is not so sharp as to tear your hand up if really using it.

    Just bot my Boker Magnum tonight. Here are a few pictures of the two. the Boker is a very nice knife it is heavy lots of metal in this puppy. Very nice wood on the handle, but it doesn't have a clip and weight is so much that it would pull your pants down on one side. The Kershaw is OMG scary sharp I already cut my thumb with it (No Blood). It is light is assisted open which this is my first one. I will never buy another non-assisted knife again. The Kershaw is not as fancy as the Boker but it is light weight scary sharp and feel much better in the hand. I am going to have to buy more Kershaw knives in the future.
