Have not taken a good picture of my full collection in a long time. Might as well make one of these.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the knives. Oh also, what do you think I'm missing?? Not really into single bevel.

Thanks! The handles and sayas really are half the enjoyment for me.
Same for me. I don't need sayas per se but I just enjoy them and usually try to get them with my knives. For my knife roll or drawer at work I enjoy Shihan's cork edge guards.
Usually also get my custom knives with wood from my collection.

For sure. Most of my knives as you can see don't have sayas because they are expensive and take up space. I keep 6-7 I'm using at a time in a henckels magnetic bamboo board, and the rest in a drawer, but I'm trying to get a much bigger one made custom so I can hold at least 10-12 on display.

I found that I tend to use knives which don't have a saya way more than those which do. Seems to be convenience based rather than the value of the knife.

Yeah I feel you. My Mt Fuji ikeda has seen zero use. Not because I don't want to, but because it's in the drawer and my togashi blue 1 is on my knife board.

It's a good and a bad thing. I have a ton and it's a shame that some don't see a lot of use...but it's nice that the use is spread out between them all so they stay nicer for longer...longer times between touch ups and refinishing.
