    I don’t speak whatever language the title is in, and assume this is true for most here. Please translate to English.

    Not quite sure if the real life character, Henry Hill, portrayed in that movie is who we, as knife fans, want to be associated with.

    We have enough image problem already, in my opinion.

    You screwed it up...
    You led with the idea of "too many knives", then went with "enough knives".
    I've admitted, to myself & others, that I have enough knives. That's a situation that is easy to recognize, and there's not really a joke there. Too many knives? I don't have that; and I'm not sure I ever could (in part because I am able to admit that I have enough).

    Actually, I have many more than I can justify. It is to the point that I am beginning to have problems choosing a folder in the morning.

    enough knives is probably 1 fixed, 1 sak and 1 folder. Mayve even just 1 knife is enough based on who you ask.

    I'd imagine, too many is hard to quantify as well, because if you have 1 and 1 knife is enough, than 2 is too many for all standards and practices. Knife enthusiats ar enot standard nor do they practice sense in a general commonly way, thus the term "too many" must take on a different paradigm all its own, shedding itself of the false dichotomy of the NORMIE knife owners.

    Under the enthusiats paradigm, 1 can never be enough, because that would make you a normie, and thus the wheel of knife life turns

    I came just to disagree with the title, but then the OP made it work!

    I can honestly say that I own too many knives. But who cares? I don't.

    Too many? Absolutely....but I’m planning on living another 30+ years, so....I’m gonna keep buyin em as long as I can afford em lol
    The real question is... in 10-15 years or so will S35VN, Elmax, M390 etc be considered “bottom of the barrel” like 8cr and 420 is now...? Hmmm
    I hope not lol

    That is THE question of course. Too many for me is more than I can conceivably use on a weekly basis except for special purpose blades that see occasional use. Ask me if I care?

    Nah - he just creates a burden for whoever has to clean up when he's gone.

    Too many knives ? I don't know.
    I do know that I have a hard time deciding what to carry sometimes and I just got another I don't know what to do with at the moment.

    For me too many is having many that I don't carry/use because I don't like them. Can never have enough good knives.

    Two questions.
    1. Can you count them? If so not enough.
    2. How many are enough? At least one more.
