Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I am not a fan of this style of knife finishing (or, perhaps, apparent unfinishing), but it seems that a lot of folks love Brut de Forge knives. Maybe it is just one of those things where you either get it or you don't. But my tastes and prefernces have changed regarding knives (and a lot of other things) over the years. Sometimes it just takes me awhile to "get it." So I thought that perhaps I am missing something regarding Brut de Forge knives. Perhaps there are aspects that I have not considered or appreciated. Do you like this style of knife? If so, why? What are the advantages? Or do you just like the way it looks (nothing wrong with that)? TIA.
