    I think as I got older and started a family, most of my hobbies kinda got sidelined.... knives are great way for me to combine a hobby that I can be passionate about, with my work, and not have to invest extra time taken from my family.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    It appears I have more stones to play with than knives. If funds were no problem I'd want to try different makers and steels , but right now I am minimalist with several very good IMHO knives.

    A VITAMIX IS NOT A GADGET! -It's a piece of kitchen machinery! It's one of the only things in my kitchen that runs on electricity and has a permanent home on my very valuable counter space.

    I don't know how well I fit into a category either. I have an EP, but also some water stones and a Jnat.... I have some super PM stainless and some hand-forged carbon, I have some $50 knives hanging right next to some $1000+ knives. When I have shop-space of my own I will probably end up making handles and eventually blades. I also really love cooking and mastering new knife techniques / old techniques with new knives. I don't think that there's a box in this category list that I wouldn't check.

    + 1 to what Jack and Mac said. BUT, sometimes I feel like a knut. Sometimes I don't.

    Completely over the edge. In less than three months of participation in this group, I have bought two knives and several more stones, and have three custom knives on order. I am out of control. Help!

    If you reach the age of 60 without becoming a curmudgeon, you haven't been paying attention.

    Hey, I agree with you but back when I asked about best blenders, someone called me a blender snob. Just trying to be senstive. Oh well...

    @Keith: I'm sure there are many here who would be more than happy to help you! I'll get things started. What are you looking for in your next knife?

    After an initial phase of excitement and impulse-control problems I have calmed down in the past few years, recognizing that my abilities and my budget put a limit to this hobby. Still a very interested observer, more of function than of steels or the quest for ultra-sharpness, still a very mediocre sharpener (who doesn't enjoy sharpening all that much), but also (mostly) content with the middle class knives I have. Started making handles to make some of them look purtier but you guys keep ripping them out of my hands, so I still haven't rehandled all my knives, yet....
