    Hello all. I have been collecting knives for a few months, mainly of the Spyderco variety. So far I have a Delica, Caly3.5, Chaparral, and a Perrin PPT. Looking forward to learning heaps from more experienced collectors.

      Welcome. Those knives are steel, not iron.

              Welcome to the forum. How do you like the PPT? I think it's a very under rated knife. I really like mine, great blade shape and a really comfortable handle. Is your Delica FFG or Sabre ground?

                  I really like the PPT. Its in my pocket right now. You notice the weight after caring a delica but the handle is really comfy and the gimping on top of the blade means you can choke up on it a lot. The Delica has a combo edge and was my 1st spyderco. I'm not that keen on that blade now, no good for peeling apples

                      Yeah the PPT certainly is heavy, especially for a knife with such a short blade, but once you get it in your hands you can see that the weight is totally worth it, a lot of thought has gone into the design of it. I have never been a fan of combo edges, especially on a blade as small as the Delica.
                      You have the beginning of a good collection, it's just a shame that with customs/laws it is going to be harder to expand it at the moment. But the exchange here is a good place to keep an eye on.

                          That is the number one reason I don't usually carry a combo edge knife.

                            Yeah, I'm realizing that the import laws are making it hard to collect folders. Maybe i should have chosen fixed blades. Doesn't seem to be any problem importing very large fixed blade tactical knives clearly designed for combat/military use, but if your pocket knife with a 2 inch blade can be flicked open then its a danger to society. Not sure what the line of thinking is there! Anyway I suppose it makes the knives already here more valuable. Seems to be a lot of cheaper syderco's (tenacious and resilience etc) selling on ebay for several hundred dollars.
