    I do... have for awhile. It's a bit daunting to think about down-sizing, but I really need to...
    I won't bore you with a complete list, but here are the headings and counts.

    Single-blade locking folders: 136

    Traditional slip-joints: 50

    Multi-tools: 12

    Fixed blades: 60

    Machetes/short swords: 10

    Hatchets/axes: 16

    Projects (restorations, new handles, kit knives): 33

    My spreadsheet shows 260. I know there are a few misc. knives and dups I haven't cataloged. I consider it my civic duty to keep such things out of the landfills or the hands of criminals.

    "You don't need another knife"
    "But look, you don't understand, Nick4305 has 15 hundred...."

    I realized the other day I admitted to having 5 PM2s, and got a funny look from everyone around me

    Don't let them bother you. Here's most of my Police Model collection.

    I'm good... it'd just make my rotation harder to organize :showoff:
    Seriously though, I have quite a few knives, but no idea how many. I probably need to sell off many of the ones I don't use (of which there are many) to fund new acquisitions.

    I hear ya
    I have too many and don't rotate some in but I keep thinking I'll expand the rotation
    Every time I go somewhere I think about what to take besides my normal two knives
    Sorta of a ride along. Lol
    I must have hoarding tendencies cause I can't part with any knives .
    Happy hunting bud!

    If I only carried three at a time it would take me years to rotate through all of mine, and that's if I changed them out every day.

    Now that's cool
    How many do you have? What types do you collect?
    I like wood handles and micarta and well anything
    I mostly like fixed knives but always carry a spyderco manix and some sort of leatherman

    I collect Police Models, Militaries and Mules. Everything else I just accumulate. Current count is coming up on three hundred Spydercos and over a thousand others. I say current, but it has been years since I took that count. I don't think I can even lift my knife storage chest anymore.
