To take Oracle's point a step further(?), I'd say that if you're asking yourself "How many kanji do I know?" instead of "How many kanji can I read and understand in context?" or "What sort of Japanese materials can I read?"
...then there's a good chance that your method of studying kanji isn't as meaningful or effective as it could be.

Counting heisig's method, 450ish. If that doesn't count then I just know 200ish.

Like others, this is difficult to gauge. I can recognize and write from memory 2200 kanji. I can probably pronounce words correctly of about 300 kanji. I probably have a 1200 word active vocabulary. Basically a newbie.
Any other bodily measurements of mine you need to know?
