Ron, the knife collection is over a period of about 30 years. This is only a good size sample of what I have in my collection. Now that I am a retired old coot I have slowed way down in adding to the collection. I did get one of the pearl & abalone inlay handled Schatt & Morgan whittlers ( 1 0f 100) that Queen put out by the new owners for my birthday. I will post a pix of it one of these days..
Thanks for the friendship not only here but in the real world. Vicki and i Enjoyed talking with you the other evening, hope to see more of you in town as it gets warmer my friend. Hey, great website too.

I am a Veteran who proudly served with the 101st Airborne Division. I carried a stag handled Puma White Hunter during my military service, making all of my parachute jumps with that knife strapped to my right leg.
After the military I bummed around the Country for a few years and also attended college on my GI Bill. I eventually landed a career working in the Horse Racing Industry here in Southern California, from which I am now retired.
There has always been some type of sharpened steel on my person for as long as I can remember; dating back to when I was a boy carrying a Barlow pattern in my right front pocket. It has only been in the last year or so that the Knife Bug has really bitten me, though.

"Of course, the winner bidder on that knife has had 28 bid retractions in just the past 6 months. There's a good chance that knife has been re-listed. Wayne, I'm sure you remember the conversations we used to have on Swiss Army Knights…"
