my first knife was a good old swiss army knife carried that religiously from about 2nd -4th grade lost it along the way and started carrying a Leatherman multi tool for awhile lost that too while fishing.Then in middle school and stared carrying singleblade thumbstud folders thats right around the time when i started to get interested in collecting knives.The collecting carried on until high school when i stared picking up anything with an edge on it including my first switchblade then i really became a knife junkie :lol:.Pretty much carried a knife in my pocket since i was in elementary school probably why if i forget my knife at home if feel like a forgot my pants :shock: :lol:

first knife was actually a cheap lil daggar that i got from a festival in town. behind my parents back.... i kinda miss it now. my mom took it away because i wasnt supposed to have a knife til i was 11 or 13? but, on my b-day my dad gave me his old knife from boy scouts a hobo knife with the fork n spoon n everything sept the kitchen sink in the middle. i still have that knife. my mom gave the one back that i bought on my own when i was 14-15... i traded it for a way more expensive folder i think it was camillus 3 blade or somthing... i came out way ahead on the trade! lol

addendum- Vagrant said it only counts if it was an EDC, my first EDC was around the same time, Cheapo Balisong Red handles with the holes in it.... older kid took it away from me... i should've told my mom about it immediatly (she'd've kicked his @$$).

My first switchblade was a beautiful AB 11inch with black horn. Had some fairly big liner gaps and some blade play. It was the first time I ever bought one. It came in the mail and for the first time in my life I finally held on to a genuine Italian switch. When I pressed the button and that blade fired open I was instantly hooked. Such butter smooth action on that AB. Not like my Frank B picklock though. That’s on another level.

I bought my first in knife when I was about five years old in 1958. Bazooka bubblegum had an offer for a folder. I mailed my $.10 cents to Bazooka and when it arrived I couldn’t have been happier. It was a single blade blue plastic scales. It’s long gone I have no idea when I lost it. That was 60 years ago. My mom was way wicked cool; she let me keep it. It was my EDC. She keep a small knife in her handbag. My dad always had a knife in his pocket.

Small swiss army knife, which within the week, sliced the side of my thumb from nail to knuckle... I was 8-11 years old I think... didn't stop me at all!!! Haha
