How many knives do you own in total?
How long has it been a hobby to buy them?
How many do you consider 'excessive' to own?
I'm noticing a personal trend, that every time I get paid, after my rent the first thing I buy is a new knife. Last month was a Carbonext 210mm gyuto, this month a 10 inch Sabatier Nogent carbon, and a few before that. Even now, I'm planning what I'll be buying next month (a new case for them, a bread knife and a filleting I think, probably just Forschner on the two knives, but maybe something else for the filleting, undecided for the bag as of yet..)
Does this phase ever pass? How long? I can't 'really' afford to keep it up, and the buyers remorse is pretty bad, but it seems such a good idea when I key in my card details and hit 'buy'.
I want to buy so many knives, but I know realistically I can only use one at a time and I'm really, wasting my money buying multiple knives. I justify it to myself. (210mm isn't long enough.. I want to try out a real carbon.. etc)
