Yep, I agree -- I think you're on solid ground here, @Ron Who!

Is anyone else here amazed to find that almost twenty percent of the participants in the poll own more than 600 SAKs (status August 2023)?

I just cannot get my head around the idea of owning that many SAKs. I must therefore assume that I have absolutely no idea about what being a collector is really about, about what goes on in a true collector's mind. 🤔

To any of the >600 out there who might read this: if any of you feels capable to explain the phenomenon, I for one would really appreciate it.

Cheers,

Simon

I’m confused - the poll at the top says 4.1% for more than 600 knives…. :dunno:

 :bnghd: I am so sorry, I misread my own poll  :facepalm: Thought this was the number of total forum members who participated in the poll. But you are right, if course. Well, that put things into perspective (somewhat). I reckon the main takeaway here is that I am a twit  :dwts:

Simon,

don't want to twit you, but you're most propably no twit, considering your elaborate threads here  ;)

I'd rather suspect your glucose levels might be a bit low. Go and have yourself some lunch.  :whistle:
Best regards and stay safe,

Wolfgang

Many thanks for the comforting words, guys!  :cheers: Maybe it's because I am on vacation at the moment, my brain is just too relaxed.  :ahhh

I don't have 600, but I can see how it would happen.  You start with a knife you like, but you like others, so you buy more.  Then there's Alox, and variations, and more and more...

I have mostly Vics, but God help me, I've become enamored of Wengers.

Edward Abbey once asked, "How can I be true to one woman without being untrue to all the rest of them?"   :facepalm:

Technically I own 14, but since half of them are on the chopping block, I'm going to call it 7.

2 serrated Spartans
1 Evolution Wood 14
1 Evolution S14
1 German Army One Hand Trekker
1 Ambassador
1 LL Bean Classic

Impressive Colt1911! You could crash the global SAK market if you try to sell them all at once.

What's your favourite item?
