How many knives?

I got into a discussion with my wife concerning her calling my Ka-Bar a "dagger". She countered with "just how many knives do you have?" For the life of me I don't know. I know I have at least 30. How about guys and gals? Let's list how many knives we have.
1-Cold Steel
1-Ka-bar
1-Cold Steel SRK
1-Glock bayonet
5-Swiss Army
1-SMKW Damascus pocket knife.
That's all I have time for right now. This list is far from complete.

Do you run a shop?

Personally, I have 10. Mostly folders, with a couple survival-type fixed blades and field-dressing knife. I never got into collecting.

I have a Buck 119, a Gerber multitool, and a couple of folders. The rest are dull metal sticks.

Around 5-10. BTW, just my personal interpretation but I thought for it to be a dagger it had to have a double edge. Although on second thought, some kabars do have them.

I think a dagger has to have a pointy, symetrical tip. Rounded tips that are asymetrical like a Kabar or a Buck 119 would disqualify from "dagger" status. But this definition here does not include anything about symmetry, only mentions the pointed blade.

I don't know and I really don't care how many I have. But, I do know that I have bought more than 10 so far this year.

Guys, I'm into knives too. Got probably several hundred ranging from a genuine Civil War bayonet to a Cold Steel Ti-Lite, to a beautiful custom, hand-made knife my father made for my grandfather in 1943 (he was a machine shop tool maker), but it ain't firearms, tactics, or training related.

As much as I'd enjoy this thread myself, we need to stay on topic.

Sorry folks; closed.
