Hello friends, my name is David and it's my personal pleasure to welcome you to my website displaying my collection of knives. I've carried a pocket knife ever since I was a teenager, and I've been an amateur collector of knives now since about 2002. I grew up in North Texas and joined the U.S. Navy in February 1971 and enjoyed a great career as an air traffic controller and airport/airspace administrator. In August 2016 I retired again, from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Board, Department of Public Safety.
I thought it would be fun to share my collection with as many of you as possible, especially some of my family who live around the world. At present I have over 600 knives in my collection, but it's doubtful that all of them will be uploaded into the gallery. I'm not a professional, I'm not an expert, and I'm not a historical authority on knives, I like to say I'm preserving knife history. It's my retirement hobby and I still have a lot more knives to find and preserve.
Now days I'm a Grandpa and also an amateur writer. I'm a member of many gun and knife organizations and avid handgun shooter. My wife Cheryl and I enjoy traveling around the country, especially Texas and going to Antique Malls, Trade Days, and Flea Markets. We have even traveled overseas and I always manage to find some interesting knives.
Be sure to check back on a regular basis for anything new in the gallery.A SPECIAL DEDICATION
