    I have been lurking here for awhile as my interest in knives has started to take over my collecting of 1/32 and 1/43 slot cars. The site is just amazing. So much information that can be overwhelming at times. Anyway, hello once again and I look forward to learning from the site. I would post a few pics of my very small collection of knives to date, but I must have to have a certain number of posts prior to doing so.

    If you upload to imgur, Photobucket, etc, you can post pictures. I'm northwest of Chicago, so Wisconsin is my playground :D

    Welcome to the forums. Prepare to open your mind and empty your wallet!

    No.
    Upgrade to a basic membership or just use a image-sharing site like imgur to host them.

    I would say welcome, but you've been here for almost 10 years already.

    Wow, slot cars. My brother and I used to have quite a stable back in the ‘60s. Lost them all in a fire. He took up the sport again about 30 years ago, still builds and races them. I have moved on.

    I was given this knife for my 5 year at the police department. Spyderco made 10 of these up for us. I was going to sell it, but figured no one would want it with the engraving.

    hey newbie!
    a very decent collection you have there :)
    do have a great time here.
    having a knife hobby can be an engrossing
    and intense; dicey too when weighing out
    wants vs needs.
    signing up with this forums
    is a strp in the right direction ;-)
    hope you can stick it out
    till you're 80 ;-)

    Lol. If I make to 50 (10 years) I'll be thankful. 80 for me is a pipe dream.

    It is engrossing. Justifying spending money as your tastes grow, can be challenging. Especially if you're married. Thankfully, marriage was a short stint for me. ~$500 was my limit at one point. Most I ever was able to justify. Ended up selling that one anyway.

    Good luck on your journey. It's fun, but costly. I'm now awaiting an OTF, I've been getting in to autos.

    Hi BRKCOP, glad you are getting active in our party. As you are aware we have a bunch of great folks at Blade Forums, smart too! I like the knives you posted in your picture.

    Any snow in your neck of the woods? Do you do any hunting or fishing? Cheer for the Packers?

    What kind of knives are you interested in? I'm a Gayle Bradley Mod 1 fan myself for EDC. You can't go wrong with one of his knives, IMHO.
