She could be right ....

I was just hangin' out watching some college football and I thought, "hey, I could sharpen my knife while I'm sitting here." So I gathered up a double handful of my EDC, work knives, a couple from my emergency kit, and a couple from the display case. Broke out the sharpening gear and had at it.

My wife walks in and looks at my pile of pointy steel things and shakes her head and says, "I think maybe you have a problem"... I think she's right....I need a bigger knife case!

Indeed, you have a serious problem. How could you possibly allow that many knives to become dull and in need of sharpening? That's like saying you need to clean a dozen guns. Just like cleaning a dirty gun, when a knife becomes dull, sharpen it immediately. Respect the steel!

Good morning Kimber Klan!

Nice collection!
Here is a small sample of my knives. I have many more just in boxes not displayed.

Truthfully only a couple really needed touching up. But's it's always nice to get a out few of your favorites. Check them, oil or protectant of choice, as needed. I have a knife of some sort on me all the time. Some nice ones in my pocket for EDC others for when I'm doing yard or car work. Their all are used differently and require different levels of care and sharpening. Some cost under $20.00 a couple a little over $100.00 but that's that fun thing about knives ...lot's of cool choices for using or collecting ...

I'll totally sharp now. The Kizers came sharp, and the Ruger/CRKT fought me for every inch, but they're toasty now, too.

I have one coming UPS (which could make me a liar), but except for a little used Shun chef knife, I think I could pass inspection.

Three of my favorite folders!

Favorites because I purchased the Buck for $2.50 and the other two were a dollar each. I sent the two case knives into Case and of course sent the Buck to Buck Knives in Idaho. Both repaired and polished the knives and sent them back to me. I paid the shipping one direction. Not bad for $4.50 + shipping. Sorry about the poor picture quality.

You can't beat a deal like that with a stick.
