    Been adding rather extensively to my antique knife collection over the past few weeks. Sharing my current line-up. These are all antiques, mother of pearl, and ivory scaled. Almost all of them are two-bladed pen-knives.

    The only exceptions are the 2nd and 3rd knives down from the top, on the left. The ivory is a three-bladed affair, and the mother-of-pearl has two blades and a nail-file/pick. In the past month or so, I've bought six of the ten knives that you see there. Ran into another collector who was eager to slim down his herd...
