    You're "liking" a post, not about knives, in a thread not about knives, in General Knife Discussion? :D

    I used to do funko pops but that got crazy so I stopped.

    I love all types of gear, like flashlights, watches

    I also love vintage toys, like 80s and 90s.

    I also collect antique pocket watches (late1700's t0 early 20th C) all in GRC even the 1700's ones, also Apollo 11 memborabilia (original period, not recent copies; except for the US Mint Apollo coin). And anything else that strikes my fancy or interest. Flashlights - small powerful LED AA or AAA type (Fenix / Inova), just getting into older flashlights.

    What else do I collect? Bills!!! It would be nice if my knife collection accumulated as fast as my bill collection.

    Tools, modern hot wheels ,wheat pennies, airguns.

    The tools much like knives I really just accumulate them buying more than I need, especially 1/4" drive.
    The wheat pennies I just keep everyone I find no matter what, and the modern hot wheels it's mostly classic American muscle and hot rods but also just anything wacky and fun fantasy castings I think are cool.
    My dad started when I was little and I've continued till now that I'm running low on wall space.

    Other than knives and guns? Sheaths and holsters. I throw away all cardboard boxes. Not worth the time or space.

    My other money pits.....I mean hobbies are gaming laptops and bass guitars/musical equipment. You thought spending 500 bucks on a single knife was bad, try spending 3,500 on a laptop that only gives you like 15% faster performance over your old one. And the fx pedals....so....many....pedals

    Dayumm Scooter that's an epic wall of awesomeness! I didn't know your collection was that deep.

    I too collect boxes in a similar fashion, just not as many.

    Knives have taken over as the largest money pit.
    In the past, I was and I guess still am a Colt revolver collector. I like 22 rifles quite a bit and have a number of them. Hunting and Fishing used to be big, but has died down considerably the last two years. Want to get back into fishing again.
    Gardening and landscaping around the house.
    Gadgets, I like tools and gadgets.
    Outdoor Photography.

    Some might say I collect Carhartt pocket tea shirts as I have a lot of them. Wear them all the time.... my "uniform".

    I have a decent whisky collection going. Which goes nicely with collecting objects with sharp edges...

    Seems like a good place to mention my large safe collection, my wife’s love of large viscous dogs and my high tech security system.
