I have bought and sold more cars/motorcycles/boats/houses then I care to admit, but I was digging through my fishing rods the other day, and came to the realization there are three things I own that I could never sell...

Fishing rods/reels
Guns
Knives

If it didn't fail catastrophically, I own every single fishing rod/reel, gun and knife I have ever purchased...to the point my beautiful bride says I have too many of all three...what about you? What "everyday" items are just not for sale?

Funny. I gave away my firearms.

I usually don't sell things.

Just throw them away when they are toast.

Guns? - No problem. I'd sell my 1911 tomorrow. No special bond.

Knives? Keep them for a lifetime - or until they break.

My wife would agree that I have a hard time throwing out old shoes.
I tend to were them with holes in the sides and hole in the soles.

The Wife used to be an "everyday" item wen we were younger smile

But , That train has long left the station ...

An oil filter wrench (the metal cup kind) that fits a car I sold. Somewhere down the line I'll end up with another vehicle that it will fit.

I think I have 4 or 5 (more than 3, that's for sure) of them in different sizes in my garage. I didn't start out as a collector of these things, it just kind of happened.

Hazet makes a really good one, by the way. Better than the cheapies available at AutoZone.

I would NEVER sell any of my automotive/mechanics hand tools, even the specialized ones I no longer use because I no longer have the vehicle I bought them for.

I would agree with you...but tools I seem to lend out and never get back.
