@OP: Those look like 440 stainless. If you have closer pics, I can examine the metal for you but from what I can see now, don't use those!


I collect blades, books, antiques, and little religious trinkets (although I am not religious). Here are some of the blades. I have many more but I don't have a habit of taking pics.


Cheness Kurome after oiling.


One of my favorite knives in my collection. It is Japan-made. It is also handmade, as most of my blades are. It is folded, hammered steel laminated in the sanmai method.


My sashimi slicer with another blade in the box in the back. Japanese white steel blade, handmade.


Some blades I don't really use but they're nice to look at. One is Japanese molybdenum steel and the another is T-10. Others are just generic carbon steel of a type I'm not sure of.


One of my quick sharpening setups for the kitchen. All those knives there are from Taiwan and are handmade.


Garage detailed setup.


Shotgun and my Cold Steel Chisa for size comparison.


I customized the fittings for one of my swords myself. Did the wrapping, too.


Gift of a Cold Steel gladius machete on the floor of my friend's apartment. She gave it to me during Christmas.

^I guess you don't have to worry about intruders coming in your house, you have a lot of ways to defend yourself.^

Anyways, I have large collection of trading cards, and I still collect trading cards.

Ultra Rare Trading Cards:

I used to have more, but I sold some back when I used to make YouTube Videos.

Pokemon Cards, I have a lot them. Probably about 1000-1300
:

Yugioh Cards:

CardFight! Vanguard Cards

Collecting trading cards it's a fun, and affordable hobby. Just don't get to carried away on spending too much money on trading cards; like I did back in 2012.

I always thought Cardfight cards were pretty gorgeous. I never learned how to play it, though. And it would probably be a money black hole like my old MTG habit.

I used to collect stuff from nature when I was younger. I still have a box of rocks and seashells in my room, and I have a small bag of shark teeth I collected from the beach a long time ago.

I used to collect all sorts of things back when i was younger.

80's toys like Gi Joe, Hot Wheels, ect

Card Games-Pokemon, MTG, ect.

D&D

Sports Cards

These days i don't really do much collecting of anything due to budget and space but eventually once i get a better apt, ill probably do anime related stuff and tradition Japanese stuff like dressing screens and the likes.

Ah, yes, I also collect sake bottles. I have around 30 or so different bottles. They stockpile quite naturally since I like having sake available in my fridge at all times.

Surprisingly most of my swords are 1055 carbon steal. as for my dragon blow gun its bone carved in Indonesia with poison darts supposable able to take down a water buffalo. I am a metallurgist, so trust me I know what a sword or knife is valued at by just looking at it.

Nice. I usually get scared when people do something silly like buy a $30 sword and try to cut with it. The display swords can look nice but they should remain on display lol

Do you happen to have any production katana?

That's actually one of my toughest blades (it's a toss-up between the Kurome and the Chisa). It is beastly since I honed it after I bought it and it seems extremely forgiving even on botched cuts.Treatment seems fine to me, since Cheness swords were pretty well-known for it back then. What you're seeing is probably the excessive amount of oil I put on it since I had to coat it with more than usual before putting it in storage. I only get to go back home every 3 months or so now. Ordinarily, I clean and re-oil every 2 weeks. The hamon on the Kurome is also fake. It's actually a monosteel sword (9260 silicon alloy) with a spring temper. So it's extremely tough even though it's a very ugly sword with no activity, since it isn't folded or differentially hardened. It still holds a decent edge for a long time but honing it takes longer than usual.

I can't expect my family to handle my things with as much care as I do, and I'm kinda scared my friends will chop things if I leave swords to them, since they don't know anything about swords, so I use petroleum jelly, wax, or more 3-in-1 oil than usual whenever I want to store swords. A few years ago, I had a bad experience with rust on my Chisa and one of my old Masahiro blades, so I'm very careful now. I clean all my swords off whenever I go home and use a gun cleaning rod to clean the saya, then do a regular oiling of all my blades. Then, I'll do my usual storage procedure again right before I leave. I even oil all my knives.

I collect older paintball guns for a hobby. I keep up on comic subscriptions but I would by no means call myself a collector on that front. I also have a decent number of electric guitars, and I collect classic video games as well.


I have a lot more guns, but these two are action shots and quite cool. This one is a Get Real Paintball AT-85 magazine fed mechanical full auto. Loud as hell, but really fun, but not really viable for competitive play because of the magazine system, it's kind of cantankerous.



And my 1st generation Pro-Team paintball Micromag. All original, fixed barrel, it's about the only loud automag based paintball gun I've ever heard.

Got a set of tiny Playstation consoles (from PS2 to PS4) today. Not really sure what I'll use them for, though.
