Default Switched from guns to knives

About 12 years ago a couple work friends took me to Angeles shooting range and I caught on to the hobby of buying, shooting, and taking shooting classes instantly.

At the time I was single and had a good job with some disposable income so I found myself buying all sorts of hand guns and long guns.

Then I joined this forum and that just fed my addiction !!

For around 8 years before I got married I had all sorts of guns and was always looking forward to my next gun purchase.

However, it has now been 2 years since I bought a gun, and while I still very much enjoy shooting, I sold off all my AR's and AK's but still kept a few long guns and a bunch of my handguns.

About 3 years ago I knew zero about knives. I did own a few Spydercos I bought at the local Turners and a Kershaw for EDC but that was it.

Now I'm single again and I have been bitten by the knife bug in a bad way.

My purchases just in the past 4-5 months have included-- 2 Microtech Socom Eites, Chris Reeves Large Sebenza, Reate Horizon D, 5 Spydercos, and around 5 other Microtechs including a couple Marfione Custom ones.

It has gotten to a point where, although I can afford it, I felt guilty spending so much $$ on knives so I have sold a few guns I owned in order to fund my new knife hobby.
All I do now when I get home from work is watch Youtube videos on knives-- For hours, learning everything I can.

I officially consider myself a collector now, as I do not plan on selling them and I have too many to ever use them all!!

And what am I doing now?- I'm online figuring out my next knife purchase.

...and you're still on the gun sites. Sounds to me you are still salvageable.

There is nothing that says one can't enjoy both knives and guns.

Of course there are those who's interests change with the wind. I can always spot them at the range with their brand new guns, top end support gear, and taticool clothes. After a year, they are gone. Those are the guys to search out for good deals.

You're single and you feel guilty about buying things you like...

You should repent for such silliness and buy my Randall #16 SP1 Fighter for sale in the CGN shopper, stop playing with flippers and start your fixed blade collection right



$600 for you shipped to your door...More pics in my signature below.

I never cared much for knives but I recently decided that carrying one is better than yelling "Help".
After trying a few I bought a Benchmade Vector 495. I wanted one that opened easily with one hand and this one does just that. It now goes with me every time I leave the house.

They are quite spendy, but Borka Blades are on my list. I’m not really into folders, I like custom fixed blades more. But the Borka Shylock and Stitch are nice.

Well, I did exaggerate just a bit when I said I sold ALL my AR's!

Still have some nice long guns I love to shoot.

Heh, when I was a kid, I collected knives and bayonets cuz my parents wouldn't let me have any firearms. When I turned 18, I started buying guns more than blades. But since dros fees got jacked up along with the ammo registration mess, I switched back to mainly collecting blades again. When I retire and leave CA, I'll resume buying guns again.

Knives are a lot easier to acquire. Much less restrictions. They have so many different variations and some of the build quality is amazing. I think they go hand in hand with firearms.

I feel ya dude. Same here. I still follow guns, but I much more into knives and other cutting implements...


Take a look at Lon Humphrey Custom Knives if you are into craftsmanship. He uses a good steel 52100 (Ball bearing steel - fine grain carbon steel), and each one is handmade.

If you are into folders there are too many to list.

Fixed blade - If you are into steels - Bark River Knives, CPK Knives are very good mid tech knives. Busse has a really good proprietary steel INFI. And there are a slew of very good bushcraft knife makers like LT Wright, White River, WC Knives, ect. There's nothing like picking up some cheap but very good quality Mora knives. Which are an incredible deal for the performance.

You'll move past the ESEEs, Cold Steels, and Becker BKs pretty fast if you haven't already. You might flirt with Tops if you like their sometimes weird designs. You'll try out and get bored with fighting knives reasonably fast.

You might get yourself a high quality Swedish Axe like maybe a Gränsfors Bruk small forest axe or something. Who knows you might even get into saws too.

Anyway, Enjoy!

Very interesting info. Thank you.
Yes I have a couple Esee Izulas and White River knives-- and you're right-- I did go through a self defense Karambit phase even where I got a Spyderco Karahawk and We Incisor-- but those turned out to be glorified box openers for me.
I do want to get into larger blades as you mentioned-- interesting stuff thanks. I will look into some of your suggestions.

I started collecting knives about 2 yrs ago. Have over 300 now. Range in cost between $20-$400. Ave price about $150.

Just bought a new gun a few months ago - a Benelli MP90S Olympic pistol that I got for a good price - but I've got over 12 pistols and over 12 long guns and that's enough. Still buying knives but being a little more selective now because I'm running out of room to store them and already have far more than I need.

I think that is common. You might come back to firearms though and it may even out. You are just consumed by another collecting hobby right now. I believe you CAN have too many guns or too many knives.

You can collect both, but I have been there where one hobby takes over. For me it was when I definitely had enough guns IN MY OPINION. Hey, if we weren't in CA with the damn roster and 1-in-30 days, I'd possibly be bankrupt.

I do what I am interested in and sometimes I lose interest in collecting what really amount to duplicate guns.

I'm anxiously awaiting the next Million Mag march, the end of the CA roster, and also Wednesday's Swamp Rat knife release. You can do both, but guns are better in most states, IMHO. Enjoy the knife collecting. It is better for you than crack.

Yeah, knives can go from $30 to $300+ before you realize it... and start rationalizing that they are still cheaper than a gun.

You should go order a Ratweiler:

I think I still have a couple old style Presidios and a pen... should have kept my Contego. Benchmade never had consistent good designs I was interested in.

So, true.

Most of my knife purchases have been between $100-250 but . . .

Just paid $420 plus tax to Knife Center for a Ti/CF Hom Basilisk R bali that I've wanted to buy for awhile. Just happened to see it. Not sure how they came by them but they've got a few for sale that have been "out of stock" everywhere else I've looked for the past year or so. Also paid $450 for a Spyderco Nirvana on EB but used the profit off of a Spyderco Paysan that I bought direct from Spyderco to fund the purchase. So, net cost to be was only about $250. Just liked the Nirvana better than the Paysan.

Those were the most expensive knives I've purchased outright but I traded about $600 in knives worth about $200 each for a Kershaw Tilt. So, that's actually the most "valuable" knife in my collection in terms of the $ I have in it.

BTW, $450 is about the break point between buying a gun vs a knife but the last gun I bought cost $700.

There's a lot to be said for collecting Knives, I love 'em.

Still have guns, but seem to be more interested in the knives now.

I love both as well. In fact I love all sorts of weapons. Bows, guns, knives, etc.

Really want to shoot a bow more often. It’s something you can do in a rural back yard that people are just cool with.

Can’t shoot your gun in a back yard in a rural neighborhood .

OP here-- Interesting. I've been thinking of getting a nice bow and taking some lessons so I can set up a range in my back yard. Can't shoot guns in my yard here in LA County but I can certainly use a bow. Could be fun to get into.

I collect old bayonets & fighting knives , pocket knives

these Turk bayonets are crude, the first two are for Turk mausers, the bottom one was used for a Turk FN FAL rifle , they only cost around $12 - $25 each , they remind me of jungle workshop made with rivets hammered together with steel handles , functional but very crude, similar to WW1 Ersatz bayonets.

I go back and forth between the two. Some good folders ro check out are curtiss, koenig, and holt bladeworks. Some good fixed blades are benchmade, fiddleback, Andersen forge, and gl drew knives. Chek out blade forums if you havent already. Lots of good info there

They make it so hard for us to get guns. And the selection becomes more and more limited every year. Why wouldn't you collect knives?
