What type of Knife Person Are You?

So, what type of knife person are you? Are you a collector? If so, which type? Oh, you don’t actually collect knives, instead you just have a several different knives that are your EDC (Every-Day Carry) knives? You are a collector and just haven’t realized it yet.

I ran across a good overview of the different types of knife people and wanted to share it with you. 

Basically, the author outlines 6 different knife “collector” types.

  • The History Collector
  • The Antique Collector
  • The Custom Knife Collector
  • The Mechanism & Steel Blade Collector
  • The Personal Use Collector
  • The Basic User

It was written by Dr. K. Click HERE to check it out.

I have to admit, while I was at one time a Custom Collector and still find them extremely appealing (meaning I have a weakness for cool knives), I am solidly a combo of The History and Antique Collector at this point.

If you are curious as to the knives I spend my time hunting, I invite you to ElephantToenails.com

So, have you identified the type of “collector” you are? Dr. K points out- “if you discover what your knife interests are early, it can save you a lot of money being spent on a knife that later on you wish you could sell….”
