I probably easily have over 60 knives and have had a love affair with knives since I got my first Barlow pocket knife in the first grade. I remember in the fourth grade getting a Schrade skinning knife with 1 & 3/4s books of S&H Green stamps. I've still got that knife and there's no telling how many deer I've skinned with it. I pretty much spent my whole life cutting up animals in some form or other. I hunted and fished when I was school and then took a meat cutting class and got a job as a meat cutter which helped me pay my way through school and then after I graduated and worked in biomedical research my "butchering" continued when I had to help do necropsies on various animals used in research. I also cut up a lot of deer and other animals (mostly pigs) for friends from Church that deer hunted. All of my knives were used for their intended purpose which was butchering animals. When I was nineteen years old I bought a R.H. Ruana handmade knife that I bought simply because I thought it was beautiful. I paid $29.95 for it which at the time for me was a lot of money. I recently looked the same knife up on Ebay and it is selling anywhere from $750 to $1,000. I don't have a clue what percentage increase that is but I'm amazed that it's gained that much in value. This is the same knife as mine... Mine is in a lot better shape though because I've taken care of it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/R-H-RUANA-BONNER-MONTANA-1943-44-3-P...Art
