Greg Posted March 21, 2008 Share Posted March 21, 2008 At what point did you get into collecting, why and how? What was that first cherished item? For me I was 14 and ordered a Swiss 1956 SIG Bayonet from US Cavalry for $15 USD. I had been buying other military surplus for a while (clothes, boots, etc) but this was my first bayonet. I wanted to collect swords but that was far outside the budget (and still is!) so I downgraded to bayonets. Luckily the Swiss make simply amazing items and I became hooked. I still have the bayonet, though I did stupid things with it back then (like tried to put an edge on it, I though all knives needed and edge and clearly the silly swiss had not done this to their bayonet for some odd reason). 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
