Great thread - just as I was beginning to wonder if I have an addiction problem...
43 in total at the moment...
30 KKF quality J-knives excluding beaters and mass produced ones such as Shun, Miyabi and Zwilling.

Darkhardt Edge Slim XL & Asphyx LG for the keepers and work rotation....knife boxes in a suitcase for the ones I'll probably sell.
Mixed long single bevels, Sakai, Toyama, Sanjo, Shig and the mixed work wrap...still need a couple of wraps for my Western keepers.

After my next BST batch I'll be down to 7 from about 40. I'm going to start working at some end game pieces and hopefully end around a baker's dozen.

That feeling when the knife bags for your collection are worth more than most cooks whole kits.
Mostly just jealous though.

That is pretty awesome, I’m not bagging on you or Kramer, just riffing on how silly things can get with this stuff sometimes. Do you cut with it? Is it awesome? I absolutely would if I could afford it and I’m curious

Not the damascus one, but I used the straight steel all the time before I sold it in 2016. Loved that knife, I used it all the time for 4 years.
