This is just a small part of my knife collection. I love collecting knives from different places whether it is just for show or used in the kitchen…The handle of the first (Khukri) and the second (double edged) hunting knife is made from yak horn. Yes all of the ones you see are sharpened to the extreme.

  4. They look majestic to me.. Glistening collection…

  5. I guess all visitors to your home have to look sharp, right?

  6. I once saw a shop here that specializes in these. I guess they must have a government licence.

    Beautiful knife collection! Do you do much cooking with any of them?

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      I use three of them for cooking 🙂

  12. Carol Graham says:

    What do you recommend as the best sharpener?

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      a ceramic honer is usually good but I prefer the steel one since it lasts longer… For quick sharpening even the rear of your ceramic soup cup with the raised bottom can be used 🙂

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      ooh those are a dream come true

  14. Do keep them out of reach of guests and small children 🙂 Great collection here.

    1. pravsphenomenon says:

      I guard them against both for my own selfish reasons of course 🙂

    Wow! What an amazing collection of knives you have!! 🙂

  19. Hey! I am Blogging From A To Z, too, and I stopped by here from the Big List because the title of your blog intrigued me. And now I’m totally interested. You say that you like knives from all over the world; do you collect knives from different eras, too? Are any of the knives in your picture antiques?
    Cool collection!

      I prefer the ones I can use from time to time.I haven’t started on antiques yet

  20. swathishenoy says:

    Wow!! Thatis a little unusual! I loved the bottom left one the most 🙂

  21. Er, knife collector? That’s new. But I guess if you are into cooking and food, it makes sense. Just a bit. 😛
