Is having a knife collection really all that concerning?

I ask this because I am a knife collector:
In October, I bought myself a knife online WITH MY OWN MONEY. I got it in the post, my family immediately started with

"I don't want to ever see that outside the house"
"Do you know how many teens become murderers with knives?"
"That isn't a hobby, that's wrong"

I mean, what the hell?

A hobby is defined as
"An activity done regularly in ones leisure time for pleasure.

Knife collecting is described as a hobby that includes
Seeking
Locating
Acquiring
Organising
Cataloguing
Displaying
Storing
Maintaining the knives.

Now.
I enjoy collecting knives, that is the first one ticked
I seeks specific knives, not just any, that ticks the second
I locate those knives on specific different websites and stores when outdoors, that ticks third
I acquire them with my OWN money, that ticks fourth
I organise them in my room, that ticks fifth
I don't catalogue them
I display them, that ticks seventh
I store them in a safe manner, that ticks eighth
I maintain them myself by sharpening and cleaning the handle and washing them, that ticks ninth

So I DO HAVE A HOBBY!

I don't even have a huge amount right now, I have 3 but have my eyes on a 4th one soon, I just need to ask myself if I really want it.

The problem is, people always think bad things when they hear the word knife :'(


Knife fanatics may have their own reasons for the hobby of knife collection.

mine is that: I appreciate specific designs, I find beauty in the designs, knowing someone came up with that design and that is why I am very specific with which knives I own, only ones I find absolutely beautiful :) I have been looking for a Damascus steel folded one but I saw some but the handles didn't look ergonomic :(

This is the size of one of my knives, its a cute little thing and super ergonomic

I seriously recommend the Promithi company to other collectors, it is made with very high grade materials :)
