    Any collectors left? Any new ones?

    A couple of mine would....most wouldn't. I think people know if they are collectors or not...and there are many varieties of collector. As an example, I abhor miniatures...but they are knives and people who collect them collect knives... Best Regards, STeven Garsson

    You might be a Collector if you fly 3/4's of the way around the world to walk the last 14 miles of the trip on a bright summer day in Montana to attend a knife show. Just sayin'. Best Regards, STeven Garsson

    Commissions or Speculation-built? Where are you on this continuum?

Then I got diverticulitis with a perforation, complications and surgery that had...
