    Can’t get myself to sell even though I am trying. I think I would not regret any I chose to sell but just seems like too much hassle ;)

    Spyderco k390 Mule with custom micarta scales and kydex sheath I made. It was the sharpest cutting knife I had. I didn't get that much to justify selling it. I actually contacted the buyer to see if it was still around.

    Benchmade LFK. I got as a gift and sold it to pay bills, along with a few other knives. :oops:

    Nothing really. I've learned that if I didn't like something then enough to hold to it, I won't like it again.

    ..except for some old discontinued goodies from early days. :D

    Microtech Combat Troodon with a Bowie satin blade.

    No trade regrets because I got an awesome knife in trade..... BUT damn I miss that knife.

    Kershaw RAM and Echelon. Pretty fun little knives. Although, really, the journey of discovering what I do and do not like in a knife has taken years and would not have been feasible if I didn’t sell or trade to recoup the expenses. I feel like my current lineup is worth having let a few go that I probably should have held on to.

    An early 90s Polkowski and a Dozier Professional Guide's Knife made about the same time. Not because I miss the knives but because the buyer was a douche.

    Lots of stuff. Unfortunately it cost me twice because I ended up replacing it eventually. I've sold two dragonfly IIs and wish I had one now. :rolleyes:

    I regret selling probably half of the knives I have sold. I have also repurchased about a third of the models I have sold.....a few to resell and purchase yet again. I think I have owned a BM 940 3 or 4 times now
