A Great Gift

My wife and I will be celebrating our 11 year wedding anniversary next week. The 11th year is traditionaly the "steel" year, meaning you give your partner a gift made out of steel.

When I got home last night my wife gave me my gift.

She has great taste and had no idea I have wanted this knife since I was a teenager.

It is a great addition to my modest collection.

I have never bought myself a knife most of mine have been gifts and have a memory behind them.

My friend got the Ruana used at a pawn shop and gave it to me the day before he was killed in a logging accident.

The brass Kershaw was a christmas gift from a former boss.

The Gerber (my EDC) was given to me by the same friend who passed away as a Christmas present about 18 years ago.

I found the Double bladed Old Timer on a fishing trip with my grandpa when I was 12 years old.

I know my collection is rather small and not all super high end knifes, but they all get used and mean a lot to me so I thought I would share with you guys.

Knives are indeed very personal items. It is wonderful that your collection has such meaning to you.

Congrats on your anniversary!
