    My wife will only allow one hobby at a time, and......

    I just scooped up a new car and ditched the big SUV, so I haven't been lurking much lately. Maybe after I get a Stillen intake and catback, I'll get a hankering for a knife again! LOL

    Can anyone else here afford another hobby besides knives???

    My new HD has become a very large money pit. It did pull 100lbs. of torque on the dyno after a few goodies,worth every penny.

    I limit myself to one hobby at a time. Did you get a Nissan and if so which one?

    My hobbies are all about making things. I still keep hearing "you don't need another hobby"! Unless it makes something that she wants!

    knives, food, and cameras kill my bank account... knives are actually the least expensive of my hobbies

    Motorcycles, Land Cruiser, music, movies. Knives are relatively new on the list.

    I develop new hobbies every couple of years or so, my family is used to it. My wallet never really recovers.

    Yah, I used to be hugely into paintball. I had half a dozen high end markers, and all the fixin's to go with it.... then I had a second kid....and a third. Needless to say, my gear sat for several seasons, almost untouched. Eventually, I sold it all off on ebay, except for my one favorite woods-ball marker (Tippman A-5, fully customized).

    But, I think, being a chef and restaurateur, I will always have a passion for knives...they may just have to take a back seat from time to time.
