Last week the pruning knife and pocket knife for Charles came in the mail. Charles liked both knives and I mentioned to Matt that he would almost like a collection of knives. Matt's brother also collects knives, but of a different sort. Seth likes knives that look dangerous, combat knives. Charles likes knives that are utilitarian, beautiful, and have a bit of history. His knife is a magnum by Boker. You can find the history on Boker here. It is a quality knife that can hold a fine edge, the bolsters are engraved, and the Damascus blade is ornate and uses a technique that was used for over a thousand years. Of course you can't have a collection with just one knife. He has his eye on a katana.
