    ...I came today home and went downstairs and see the wife had rearranged some furniture. On my computer desk are 2 knives stacked up there :oops:. She comes downstairs and I commented on how much I liked it. As I was looking at the knives she say's "I found those under the recliners when I moved them" who knew :D Sometimes I fall asleep with them and they fall down the inside of the chair I guess LOL!

    Man... That's WAY better than finding a $5 or $20 bill... Or more often in my case, quarters!

    I’ll give you $1000 for your couch. It would be like Christmas in July all over again.

    I recently moved. And had to make sure none of my treasures were hidden in a few pieces of donated furniture. I got them all. I think.

    Once you have more than a Baker's Dozen of any model there probably needs to be some questions asked....... ;) :D Not that I know ANYONE who would have any such thing....

    I only discuss such important ASH1 matters with my Psychiatrist. I do have - “more than a few.”

    It's important that someone in the northern hemisphere has as many ASH1s as Andy has in the southern hemisphere, otherwise the planet might start spinning funny. Enough has gone wrong in 2020 already without also developing a wobble.

    Rest assured, friend. The earth will remain spinning firmly on its axis.

    Well, he has many picture's of them up around the interwebs, he's probably held some back though. I know this though, if he posted a pic of one, he for sure, still has it.

    I knew it weren't only me.... but knock on wood, no therapy yet!
    But can you imagine some of the stories that are going to be on Antiques Road Show after we're all gone? Going to be some great episodes.

    I found myself deeply regretting passing on the ST55 when they were offered. At least two years later I was piddling around in the knife/gun room and to my delight found that I had one, still in the mailing box. The nice thing about senility is that you find such nice new knives.

    I have the opposite problem. There are lots of things I know I bought, but I have no idea where I put them. It's really quite maddening.

    I believe my younger brother was about to faint when I told him I’ve paid “more than” $600 for a Busse. And was astounded as I don’t otherwise live an expensive lifestyle. He’s a great guy, but not a collector of anything. I am. In several other areas.

    And the money I don’t spend on newer cars, fancy-pants clothes, jewelry, children/grandchildren etc. goes into my blade passion. My best friend, also thankfully a Bussemun, understands completely. As we do here.

    That, as well as the fact that you get to make new friends every day, plus you can hide your own Easter eggs....

    And yes, I have found Busses and other knives I'd forgotten I owned when doing some rearranging or while looking for something else :oops:, although that certainly doesn't mean I own too many ;)
