It's funny: I don't really consider myself a knife collector yet I keep buying them. Each knife I own has a particular niche; e.g., camping, fishing, everyday carry and around-the-house, self-defense. I categorize the Burnley Obake CRKT as a weapon, a self-defense knife. The knife itself is well-made, with a nice aesthetic, an excellent grip and a good edge, but it's the sheath/lanyard setup I really like. With practice, presentation of this knife from sheathed and secured, tucked and concealed at my side, to out and ready is faster than all but my push-button automatics. Besides, for the price point, you simply can't do much better.
