Hello friends, my name is David and it's my personal pleasure to welcome you to my website displaying my collection of knives. I grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and joined the United States Navy after high school. I enjoyed a great career as an air traffic controller, airport and airspace administrator, retiring as a Navy Senior Chief Air Traffic Controller. In 2016 I retired again, from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Board.
I’ve always carried a pocket knife, but I've been an amateur collector of knives now since 2002. I thought it would be fun to share my collection with as many of you as possible. At present I have just over 875 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.
Be sure to check back on a regular basis for anything new in the gallery.A SPECIAL DEDICATION
