    I think that would depend on how many rooms you have in your house:-)

      More than three - a Case Small Stockman (pocket knife), a Schrade 7 in fillet knife, and a Case Leather Hunter (6 1/2 in fixed blade)...and I plead guilty to owning too many.

        Thee biggest problem is deciding which one you want to use. I've got a couple dozen that I have accumulated over the years.

          I have my fancy going out knife, a case pen knife. A working pocket knife that I abuse and have to replace frequently. My good hunting knife, a 4" drop point, and a back up. A good filet knife. My bird and trout knife. Finally, my leatherman. Of course a Woodsman's Pal and a good camp ax are also needed, but I am not sure if you want to put those in the knife catagory. Those are not the only ones I own, but they are the only one a really need.

            Ain't no such animal as too many knives. I'm still looking for the perfect one---haven't yet shelled out the coins for one of those Diamondedge blades. I have a little Boker automatic opener that I love for pocket carry. I clean hundreds of pounds of fish a year (not kidding)mostly with a Gerber or Rapala fillet knife in 6" and 7" and appropriate Dexter boning and fillet, and serrated blades for bigger fish like bull reds and big king mackerel.

            I love my Cutco hunting knife and keep my Buck with the gut hook close at hand. I also like the Cold Steel Master Hunter.

              I'm 15 and I've been collecting knives for 7 or 8 years and have exactly 100. I need a bigger box.

                You cannot have too many IMHO. They usually go up in value too!

                  There is never too many knives in a collection. I think they are great to hang on to and pass down. I have a cold steel Gunsite folder I carry at work but I always have either a Case or Opinel carbon blade model on me. I recently got on a carbon knife kick after I bought my first one and realized how easy they are to sharpen. I also like the character the blades get from darkening after use. That reminds me of my grandfather's knives. I bought the Opinel about 6 months ago after reading what a value it is for the money. It is one knife I am seriously impressed with. If you get a chance search for the reviews on the internet if you are not familiar with them.

                    I like to collect USED knives on ebay. The odder they are the better. I have lost track of how many I have.

                      I make bench made sand use different knives all of the time. It's kind of a fetish for me but I do have 2 favorites. A small 2.75 inch skinner, and a 6 inch multipurpose blade. I don't think you can have too many. It just gets to b a pain sharpening them.
