most interesting! Boy you have a lot of knives! Make cool pics though! WB :)

Thank you.

I do not view myself as a knife collector but more of a multi-tool collector. I got into it as a sort of homage to my father, who left me with about 15 multi-tools. I figured I may as well start to collect them as I already had a starter collection going on. The Swiss Army Knives are an offshoot of that collection (they are multi-tools after all). In fact, I find their history very fascinating. When I started that, I had no clue at just how many models and variations existed out there.

To get an idea, you can take a look at this website. You can spend a lifetime collecting this stuff if one had a mind to it. Check out the knife list which breaks them down my size, and than model number. You can click on each entry for more info.

Very impressive! I have carried a Swiss Army knife since I was a kid. Most useful tools around.

I wouldn't want to have to stumble around your place during a power outage.

I don't have them all over the place. I had to buy a storage solution to keep them safe.

For instance, here is the Leatherman collection that takes up two drawers in the upper chest.

Impressive collection of multi-tools, and great job with the artistic photos of them all. I have the Leatherman Juice CS4, which I absolutely love, and I have the tiny stainless steel Swiss Army knive that's with me everywhere I go.

Wow Chako, my husband an my youngest son will be green with envy when I show them these pics.

That is quite an impressive collection. :)

I showed them the pics and they were amazed. My husband wants to know if you sharpen them?

As a collector, I don't use them. I try to get them in new condition and keep the factory edge on them if possible.

Chako, do you have a favourite that you carry with you? My father-in-law is never without his swiss army knife. He whips it out whenever someone is trying to open something or whatever....lol.

Due to work restrictions, I only carry a Leatherman Knifeless Fuse. I had to special order it in from the States.
