Knife collecting is fun.
I think we’d all agree to that, right? But do you know what is equally as much fun? It’s what I’m going to call- Sharing the joy.
Sure, we all love tracking down new, in my case new old, knives to buy and all that is a part of that, but if you want to experience a different level of fun, then help a new collector.
What got me off on this today? This did-
Good morning Scott. Thanks for your reply.
I am pretty much a novice with elephant toenails, but am very captivated by the big funky old time nostalgia look and size. Most of the knives I have collected so far are bowies and conventional slipjoints. I have not ventured into the ancient past yet.
Any advice for starters?
If you know me at all, this was all she wrote. Katy bar the door. Advice, oh my, where do I even begin.
When collectors seek advice the responsibility we have to guide them is tremendous. Think about it. And, I bet if you had to do a quick list of the top 5 recommendations you could do that as fast as you could write, right? I couldn’t type fast enough.
What I found as I offered my suggestions was I enjoyed sharing the joy- helping this collector explore the world of elephant toenails.
So, this collector wanting some advice is what promoted today’s post here.
