I think I've only bought the 52100 Military this year. My last purchase before that was my Nilakka but I don't remember if that was late last year or early this year.

This year I've tried to make an effort to buy less knives. I'd say I'm failing at that right now but I'be still bought less than last year. And yes, right now with all the exclusives and sprints it's been hard not to buy.

If you look in my signature line you can see what I've bought this yeas so far, starting from the GB2 I think.
Most recently acquired: Paramilitary 2 Tanto, YoJUMBO, Swayback, Siren, DLC Yojimbo 2, Native Chief, Shaman S90V, Para 3 LW, Ikuchi, UKPK, Smock, SUBVERT, Amalgam, Para 3 CTS-XHP, Kapara, Paramilitary 2 M390
Grail Paramilitary 2 M390 X 2! ACHIEVED!!

I've been trying to be good, if I hadn't decided to get as many D2's as are available, I think I'd have been ok...as is I've cut last year in half...Early collecting is tough when you need, want, like, everything ..now things should slow down, now that I have most of what I want.

Battlestation, MT21, and MT22 is it for me so far. I have more knives than I could possibly ever need, so it's become easier and easier to resist more. But I'll probably get a MT24 and the Magnitude when they drop.

Holy smokes, that's a lot of Spydies in one year. :D I've been weaning myself back on Spydie purchases for a while now, but this year has seen several new additions (I forget the actual number). I also have a handful of Rhinos in-bound once they are in stock. ;)

Yeah...well...I had some catching up to do. :D There's no way I'll continue at this pace. There were just some models I had to try and few that I've bought just because. A couple were already gifted and some will be traded or sold.

Beloved wife thinks I'm manic! I explained to her that the American economy hadn't been as strong as ours of late and the fact that the Amareecans are indeed our friends and allies,it was only fair and reasonable we do what little we can to help. She reluctantly agreed and asked me to move several knives from the coffee table. :rolleyes:

Don't have a lot to spend on knives these days so I have to be selective and miss out on some. So far I've got the GB2, HAP 40 Dfly and Jade M4 PM2 :)

I'll hopefully add the KW 204p Millie at some stage and then I should be pretty content :)

Definitely doing better than years past, but still ahead of where I had planned. I had targeted 8 knives for the year, and I'm already past that number with 5 months to go...

DF2 HAP40
Roadie
Military 204P
DF2 G10/VG10
Military 52100
PM2 M4 BHQ
... plus 4 other non-Spydies (Kizer Gemini, Victorinox Pioneer X, Lionsteel SR2A, and a Bark River)

Hopefully I can hold-out on the Military in S110V for awhile since it's production. When the Rhino drops I'll be in on that, plus the new SlyszChef collaboration... 8 was probably an unrealistic goal, honestly, but I knew that I had to do better than last year (16).
