Welcome aboard. Please do us all a favor and participate in areas more than just the exchange. :)
There are some outdoorsy threads here, as well as a few “knife testing” threads. Have fun and welcome to the addiction.
PS. Do yourself a favor and pick up a CRK Sebenza 21 or Inkosi and work it hard. Best working folding knife out there.

Keep ‘em Sharp

Thank you? I’m considering a Sebenza but just haven’t found the one that speaks to me yet. I’m to slow and spend too my lunch time working on the ranch to pick anything worth a damn out of the exchange - already figured out that it’s dominated by keyboard warriors with nothing better to do than hit the refresh button every 60 seconds. Lol. How’s a working man to ever compete with that? Haha!

I’m just looking forward to learning more about the tool I use so much. Thanks so much for the welcome!

It’s always great to have more knife enthusiasts sign up. Glad you are here and learning a bunch.

Hang on to your wallet…it can get expensive!

Hi all

I just tried logging in and it worked!!

I actually joined last year but didn't think it worked as I was experiencing difficulties actually getting logged in back then!!

I've not made any knives in many years but now i've finished having to go and earn a crust, I reckon i'll have time to start again!!

Here's a couple I made about thirty years ago at work when we had little to do!

The double edged one is made from an old Butchers sharpening steel and is around 20" long, I worked in a heavy foundry and carved patterns from pine, Then made sand moulds then poured molten brass in!

The cutlass type thing I bashed out of a half inch mild steel packing strip so is just a wall hanger!

I made both without power tools which is probably why I have arthritic hands now!! 😆😆

Hi everyone, just joined & figured introduce myself & a little about me.

Aviation is my life & passion. I work for an Airline & I used to work for a company at the Airport I work at with the Airline. I love photography, movies, music, watches, cycling & hiking.

Never really got into knives until my Spyderco Para 3 that I got in May 2020, that's when the knife bug bit me. Prior to the Spyderco, I've received 2 Swiss Army knives (Victorinox Tinker & Rescue Tool) & a SOG Trident.

I have this info & some more about the knives in my profile.

Hi All,
Just joined this morning. Been lurking for a short while. Starting to dip my toe into collecting some traditional folders, slipjoints, etc. I can already tell it is a slippery slope. In hopes of avoiding spending the afternoon trying to find the simplest instructions for uploading photos, using an image hosting site, etc., can anyone point me to an existing thread with step-by-step instructions and/or recommendations for image hosting sites?
Thanks!
