    Knife collecting can be a hobby - when they are "collectable" knives and when you have your own home.

    If it's not your house, you have to abide by the owners rules.

    Also, you also have to be either 18 or 21 to legally obtain any form of knife in most places...

    (And again in most places it's still then a criminal offence to carry one in public).

    Knife collecting is not about sharp objects, it's about blades that have technical or cultural/historical significance that in some way makes them special, interesting or rare.

    There is nothing to stop you learning about them until you are old enough and independent enough to actually buy collectable items.

    eg. Look up the history of the Indonesian "Kris" [Keris] blade or the technology behind making a Katana.
