I think I have a problem...
« on: August 14, 2017, 10:04:40 AM »
I already have more SAKs than I need or can use. I carry my Wenger SI daily and absolutely love it.

I have bought others to try but I always end up back with the SI.

I already have two Pioneers that I never use. But I just bought another off of eBay. I just couldn't help myself!!!  I blame it on the seller... he only asked $25!!!!!   How could I pass that up??

Top pic is my small collection. Missing from the picture are my SI and my Vic 111mm Centurion as they are both downstairs and I'm too lazy to go get them!  LOL

Other pics are of the blue Pioneer I just bought.  The guy ground off the key ring nub and got into the ALOX a bit, hence the low price...





I feel an intervention is needed....before my wife thrashes me!!!  Haha!!!

Oh I know my collection is small. But I never use anything but my Wenger SI, so I guess it's nuts to buy others that will just go into my knife box.

Haha

Nothing wrong with that  :cheers:

No point in having a knife box if there's no knives in it  :D

Still no intervention needed  :D

Oohh you don't have a problem mate... It's a perfectly normal number for a user/enthusiast, and next to nothing for a collector...  :whistle: :D

I'm a Sak user/enthusiast (non collector) and i have about 40 of them in total...  :ahhh
Lot's of duplicates (backup's) of the ones i use the most, no different colors or scales but just exact (classic red) duplicates...

The wife it pretty used to it by now. Between Sak's and playing 5 different instrument's (with a home studio filled with them).

Hey she already met me like this, you know... That helps... :D

This ^^

The problem is when you run out of space for your non collection.  I have 2 back ups of my favorite 85mm Tinker.  I also have a back up Swisschamp.  The others I've collected along the way were for "testing" purposes.  Maybe begin to trade the ones you know you wont use for SAKs you've been meaning to try?  I've also found that later down the road I have some back to SAKs I've tried and not connected with.  The bummer is when I've given a SAK aways and later go back to it but have forgotten I've given it away.

I just realised that I don't have a backup of my bladeless Woodsman, which is my main EDC SAK.  :ahhh :ahhh

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

Okay, look at me. Give me your attention.

You don't have a problem. Okay, so you go a little over  board by "normal" standards collecting SAK's. Look at this way; you're accumulating one of the most useful objects known to humanity, They will let you deal with everything from a mild auto problem to fixing home appliances. Second; they don't really cost a lot. For the price of a chain restaurant lunch for two, you get a SAK. That's a del in any book. Try collection firearms at many hundreds of dollars a pop! And it's certainly less harmful than compulsive gambling, doing drugs, or being an alcoholic.

So, if your wife objects, ask her to okay the price of that new trap shotgun for 4,000 dollars! Or the new Harley for the midlife crisis at 20,000!

She'll see the light.

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

I got carried away on purchases for a while, and have gotten a little behind in offloading the surplus. After I've done that, I'll probably still have about 15 to 20 users. I was hoping to get it down below 10, but that doesn't include the ones permanently living in first aid kits, other kits, and the kitchen drawer.

I can relate.  Everything is going to be okay. One of the great things about used SAKs is they usually hold their value, so you can awlways throw it back in the pond...  I'm currently getting rid of many...
