    I think I may have another monkey on my back. I have carried a Wilson Combat/Hoque starlight drop point for several years now and it is an excellent knife imo. Everything was fine ! Then I suddenly got the urge to pick up another folder. I got a Benchmade griptillion. Love it, so I got a Benchmade Barrage. Love it. Now I ordered my first Spyderco. This doesn't seem so bad but I have bought the last three in IMG_3549[1].JPG IMG_3553[1].JPG IMG_3554[1].JPG IMG_3557[1].JPG IMG_3558[1].JPG IMG_3559[1].JPG the last month. I'm I getting a problem ? Gotta go, looking at a Micretech OTF for Christmas !

    Not for me, not to the same degree as 1911s, at least. (Thanks God!) I have some decent quality folders, and a few interesting fixed blades but I carry the same two all the time.

    I just bought a Zero Tolerance flipper for my brother in law for Christmas. I'm not sure I'm gonna give it to him! Yep, they're addictive.

    Though Benchmade isn't my favorite brand I do like a few of their knives. You should buy the AFO in the classifieds if it is still there.

    YES! I have bought and sold countless knives over the years for no real good reason than something caught my eye. I have some that have stayed through the years but its much easier/cheaper to buy a knife than a gun so this addiction is constant. I actually have an Emerson Super CQC 8 BT waiting in my mailbox at home right now!

    Addictive? Are knives addictive?!!! Are you freakin kidding me Of COURSE knives are addictive :cry:
    I can’t help myself and it’s worse than firearms for me right now!!
    I ran out of room in the safe for guns so I thought yeah I’ll pick me up a couple nice knives they’re cheaper and take up way less room!! Right!! Aghhhhhh:cry:

    I hate you guys soooo much right now.
    Pena Rhino just arrived Monday or Tuesday I can’t remember the days blur together! You would think that would work and hold me over for a bit......Oh hell no! I had to buy the Adamas out of the classifieds and now that won’t be here until Monday according to tracking number. I don’t know if I’ll make it until then without another purchase! I’m looking at a Demko now!:cry::cry::cry::cry:

    NO, not to me. It is a tool to gut stuff and if a $20 knife will do the job so be it. I just need a SHARP blade to remove things. I like kitchen knives more than anything for cutting up meat and intruders as the blades are usually longer, razor sharp and just fun to cut up "things".

    LGS has lots of gun inventory to browse, sadly he has a nice knife inventory as well. Visited last weekend to check out guns and this little ZT jumped in my pocket. Guns, knives, tools and wheeled vehicles, all boy toys, pick your poison.:)
