    After a while I learned that folks usually have about as many knives as they do guns...what's your gun to knife ratio?

    2 to 1.

    Okay, I'll play...I'm figuring I'm 4 : 1 guns to knives, unless I can add in the knives I have in the kitchen ;)

    Depends what you count as a knife, do you include razors and utility knives kept in my toolbox?

    Counting only real pocket knives (and not including kitchen knives, razors, $2 utility knives, etc), I've got like 8:1 guns:knives. Ammo bills keep me from buying more knives.

    6:1 guns to knives.

    Knives that are worth more than $20, zero.

    Though I guess one is coming in the mail for my birthday that will count as a nice knife, one that I can't carry around.

    Excluding evil bayonets?

    Probably 10:1.

    Next year I'm going to hammer a worn file into a knife. Got a Kukri that Spectre (John Shirley) gave me that is made from a file. Embarassingly untactical but my favorite daily carry knife is the Swiss Army. That knife has over 40k frequent flyer miles on it.

    Now, my favorite "display" knife is a navy fighting knife with a gold battleship on it. It's a Pearl Harbor commerative and one day I'll surround it with 1/1200 scale models of the battleships that were present. Another nice "display" set is my Rex Applegate fighting knives. They even came with an autographed photo of the good Colonel. :D There are many more knives, but I really don't keep track of them all.

    I'd have to move again to figure it out.

    But I usually wear more guns than knives.

    Roughly 1:1, not counting swords or multitools, but counting bayonets.

    If we're talking carrying, and not owning, then knives win out.

    I usu carry one gun (P7M8) and 3 knives (Gerber, Benchmade and Leatherman).

    If we're talking owning, then it's more even.

    2:1

    That's only counting the real knives, not the crappy ones I've found over the years in theaters and stuff.

    Umm. A safe full of guns and a drawer full of knives.

    Since the knives are smaller than the guns, and the drawer is smaller than the safe....

    I'd say about 1:1.

    A rough guestimate would be 20+ knives to every gun.:D

    I'd guess about 1:1 ratio at this time.

    Too many of both, and in each category, most are NIB.

    I both collect and carry shooters/using knives

    I'm NOT gonna count all those knives up......

    I'm not going to count all of them up, but if you check my sig, you'll probally understand why its around 35 knives for every gun.

    Good news is, I have ALOT of guns;)

    Uh, a Ka-Bar Black Tanto, a Glock field knife, a Swiss Tool, a Swiss Huntsman F, a Böker Speedlock, a Herbertz one-hand folder, a cheap jackknife, and a cheap multi-purpose knife in the car. That's eight knives vs three guns.

    Let's see, I have a Kershaw I carry every day and a Buck that goes hunting with me. That makes it about 15 to 1.
