Most of us would like to be collectors. There are many knives that I would dearly like to have but there are not that many that I can legitimately consider as consistently useful that are good values in that regard for their cost. For example, I have many more uses for a smaller knife these days. I really like the Lil' Lum, but it is not a good choice for me as a useable small knife given its cost and size. A Dragonfly would be as useful and considerably less expensive.
