    If you had 20 BNIB Benchmade knives, and about 15 other high quality knives for EDC, would you sell off the BNIB to fund a few Busse blades? Or just hang on to them and keep buying Busse knives, but at a slower pace?

    Good question. I think I probably sell off he " lower end" ( what ever your consider that to be) knives ....consolidate the funds and buy something new that in your mind is an upgrade.

    I would keep the best of BM as I think you must enjoy em ... If you didn't you wouldn't have that many.

    Personally, I think I would sell off the folders if I could do it without taking a major loss. That's a lot of safe queens!

    Folders are great for discrete EDC ...... Keep the best, sell the rest. Nothing like a fixed blade. Just can't be seen in public with one, in many parts.

    I've already been through this (a few times). Some Busse always pops up that I just have to have and I end up selling off almost all of my folders. After I get my Infi fix I start buying back some edc folders and viola another Busse pops back up for sale. It seems to be never ending but that's ok as I seem to enjoy it.

    FWIW, I've gotten my folders down to only what I will carry in rotation.
    I dumped everything but:
    Al Mar SERE2000, CRK Umnumzaan, Strider SMF Lego & SMF CC, Hinder XM-18, Three Sisters Forge SuperBeast, and a pair of Microtech Socom Delta Zombie Tech.

    I had dozens of others of varying quality, some BM's, Buck's, ZT's, ColdSteel, SOG, Spyderco, etc.
    I just never put them in my pocket and when I really looked at them, my true feelings about this pile of knives was "Meh..." so away they went.

    Bought more Busse's and 'Kin, never looked back!!! :D

    OINK! :pig:

    I'm a little under the weather right now, but in a few days I may go through them all and leave my favorite 10, selling the least favorite 10.

    Exactly the same with me. I'm always buying and selling to fund other needs, from fixed blades to folders and my gun needs. It s a never-ending circle for me that I greatly enjoy.
