    I would add:

    +5 if your collection causes relationship problems
    +10 if you have ordered a custom while intoxicated
    +15 if you have reached the point that giving away knives seems like a good idea

    +5 for every knife or knife related product you purchased for a friend or loved one.

    Well from the first rehandle pts. I would say we are all very well behind the craftsmen here, even if you have the best collection.

    +5 for any Japanese knife you've actually bought in Japan.
    +10 for any knife whose maker you've met in person
    NO automatic points for customised handles (often they make knives look cheesy)
    NO points for patinas, unless particularly beautiful
    +5 if you've scrubbed and polished away like a Japanese and kept any hint of patina or blemishes off your blade

    Mr. Dinky! The one one about buying while intoxicated almost made me shoot soda through my nose!! that was hilarious! Its funny......... because it is true... .



    I knew there would be some awesome ideas coming out of this thread! Im surprised no one has mentioned stuff like...

    + 5 if you have crossed he equator with your knife gear... in one hand and a duck press in another...
    + 10 If you have Crio-tempered your Yanagiba in Antartica!
    - 8 If you are on some person of interest watch list for constantly importing suspicious pointy things
    + 4 I you are automatically added to every passaround!
    + 200 if you can dance the Mamushka like Gomez Adams while holding a Blue #2 Watanabe Kiritsuke in your mouth like a pirate!
    + 5 if you are on your last Custom's Maker Christmas card list (+6 if you get a call!)..
    +3 You have ever had a serious knife binge next day hangover!

    Aahh, you know about the shoemaker's family going barefoot...

    + 10 if you had your knife block or magnet custom made
    + 10 for every knife with a Fish handle
    - 5 for every knife you had forgotten about that you find while adding up points

    I would say -5 for every knife with rust spots, but that would kick me right out of the competition...

    +1 although I have a couple that haven't seen the inside of a kitchen

    +5 if you've actually named all your knives.
    +10 if you keep your top 2 seperated so they won't get jealous.

    +5 if you have designated pass-arounds for your friends and family
    +10 if you have a knife for your better half to use (so they don't touch the collection)
    +15 if you have a knife for each kid, and those knives have as much patina as your go to knife
    +20 if your kids sharpen their own knives
    Approach life and cooking with reckless abandon
