Lady and Gent foosters: Show us your "cutlery"

I know there's been a thread like this before, but we need one that's more "lasting".

I've always been a fan of knives, unfortunitely I don't have enough!!! I actually would like to collect them.

Right now, I only have two knives worthy of note.

A gerber, spring assisted valloton.



and I just ordered a Boker Magnum Tanto blade.



I'm looking to eventually get a boker EBK fixed blade.



So, post up what you own, or wish to get?

I've got a Boy Scout folding knife that I found in my front yard about 30 years ago.

Tanto's are lame.

Also, it would be better to post the types of knives I don't own.

I'll just list the stuff off that I have, I don't know where my camera's USB adapter is at the moment.

A Boker Applegate Fairbairn serrated standard length dagger, a Gerber Covert, a Tops Bowie, a collection of pre chinese Schrade Clip Hangers, a Camillus Grandpa, an old Italian Godfather, a Cold Steel voyager with the 6" blade, a short katana type thing I made with a used school paper cutter blade, an SAK and a Swiss card, a Leatherman Charge, several bayonets, and several pen knives that my now dead grandparents owned that I cherish as a means to remember them by.

I agree that they are lame, but they are quite durable, and they are good at preventing a rib cage from stopping a knife thrust. They have their uses. But, for general use, I like clip points.

For a second there, I got excited thinking this was Swiss chard.

i'll add a picture when i get home, but my "everyday" knife is a 15 year old Spyderco Rescue. it's a discontinued model - it's got a fairly long blade, unlike the stubby crap they're selling today. nylon handle, stainless serrated sheepsfoot blade. use it for most anything, really.

not too good at straight, even cutting, though. but i usually use razors for that.

Yeah, the PSTII should win some kind of design award. One more blade would be nice.
