I thought it might be interesting to see how many Chinese knives we have.

I know there are a few members with many, many knives so I thought this poll would give a better indication of how many most of us have.

I have about 15 SRM, Enlan, Ganzo knives I believe.

I don’t own any knock-off Chinese knives. But I do have a Spyderco Kiwi that was made in China. I just had to try a Chinese Spyderco, and I love it. Smile

Over 50 which I bought between March and June of last year which was the last time I bought one. They're in a box somewhere around here and 99% of them haven't been used.  Some haven't even been taken out of the package.

I was going to ask which was your favorite but I guess the answer would be “none of them” Smile

I have at least 15 nice Chinese knives (if I include several awesome Kershaw assisted-openers.)

Almost all of them are in great condition and should be sold on BLF.  It's just so much easier to buy online than to sell, which is one reason why I'm a hoarder.

Lately I've been edcing my SOG Flash 1 that my friend Norm gifted me last year.  I do have several 763's that stay permanently in both vehicles and in a couple of my backpacks.  So I guess the 763 is my most used but my favorite Sanrenmu's are my 2 MC-762's because they're cool looking and hard to come by.  Out of my 50+ knives, 20 of them are Sanrenmu, 11 Bee/Enlan's, 2 Ganzo's and an assortment of other brands like Navy, Gerber, Kershaw, etc. 

I have the most fun with my butterfly knives which I play around with (both hands at the same time) or sometimes show off to my friends.  You should see me show off after a few beers -- not too good.    I haven't seen them in a while though.

Im over 100, but its a cheap useful collectable. The quality is generally very good with many makes. Especially with Enlan and Sanrenmu blades.
