    Well, not technically the whole collection. I managed to miss a box with 25 folders in it, but it took an hour to set up and about as long to put everything away so they'll have to wait till next time.

    I also set the picture up on my bed and had to hold the camera to the ceiling to get far enough away to include them all. It took me about 10 minutes of small adjustments to get just this picture so its as close as I'm worried about. Next time I'll just start out on the floor to ensure I can back up enough to include them all. The picture isn't all that impressive, but it took up about 5 ft. wide by just over 4ft. tall.

    I can't recommend it if you've got a very large collection, but if you've ever taken a group shot, I'd like to see it :)

    I believe you're talking about the Benchmade Monarch Gamesman Skinner - Model 505. It's circa 1993 production. Black zytel handles with Kraton rubber inserts in a Lockback.


    Certainly not all at once, but I may try my hand at giving away a few. To this point I mostly just give them away to folks I know who need them. Gave away 11 last year and 8 so far this year. :)

    I don't know that I'll ever go away from buying Benchmade and some Spyderco's that intrigue me, but I've recently started throwing a few Customs into the mix. If you look closely, you'll see a Kirby Lambert Incinerator as well as a Three Sisters Forge Beast and then a TSF Super Beast in the last couple months. The Super Beast had impeccable timing; Jim let me know mine was ready on my birthday (Aug 8). Can't argue with that :) Oh, and I've got a Daniel Frazee Curve Friction folder coming in the next week as well. Hope my overtime holds out ;)

    I've never once carried more than a single knife at a time. I guess I like having options. I work Monday through Friday and a couple weekends a month. Work policy says 3" blades and under so my EDC choices are fairly limited.

    I thought about labeling them all, but I can't share a picture that would be big enough to read the text I think? Maybe I'll try it next weekend; working this.

    Cool idea! If I have some time Ide like to do the same with my collection, although not as large as yours and the majority of mine would be Spyderco's. AWESOME collection though, a few pieces in there caught my eye :)
