    New guy from Northern California. I was a Victorinox/R.H.Forschner factory sales rep for many years, I’ve been collecting fixed blade hunting and fighting knives for over 25 years and I’m now just getting into flippers, automatics and OTF’s. Happy to be here.

    Hi All,

    I was still in the Philippines when ainfirst joined this forum back in 2004-2006(i forget now).
    I am based in NZ now. I recently lost my long time EDC , a small folding stainless steel blade ,with g10 scales.
    I thought I visit these forums again to see what’s now and what has changed since the time I left.

    Hi all,

    I've always loved knives and I'm starting to get into them a bit more lately and searches kept leading me back here so I decided to join. My collection is small, but I plan on growing it. I'm a fan of Kershaw and Benchmade. I just ordered a Hogue Auto which I'm really excited about.

    Anyway happy to be here.

    Hi all, new member from PA. I'm in that stage where I'm trying to read and watch as much as I can so I can learn. But first...where do you get the self control to not buy more knives??

    Hello everyone, new to the forum. From Oregon. I am retired from metallurgical quality control & failure analysis field. I am currently transitioning from gun nut to knife nut. I have probably gotten 2 knives a month this year. 90% are Benchmade, my current favorite manufacturers. It doesn't hurt that i live 10 minutes from factory. It looks like there will be a lot of changes for them over the next year.
    Looking forward to expanding my knife knowledge!! The forum has already been a good resource.

    Ive been grazing these pages for some time now, a casual collector more recently into traditionals. I joined yesterday just to get into the fold a little better. I really enjoy knife-knut knerding and this forum is a gold mine. I dont always agree with some of the conservative sentiments ive come across, but I sure do love knives, and guns are generally ok by me as well. My collection focus has been more on users and iconic patterns. I like 1095 as im not great at sharpening and enjoy patina. So win win with the carbons. I like bushcraft too so my meager collection is as follows: KaBar usmc (half serrated), Condor Sequioa Primitive, BK&T eskabar, SAK (tinker?), SAK (camper?), Leatherman Wave, Case Trapper yella SS, Case Trapper amber bone CV, and now a Tidioute dixie stockman copperhead bone in the mail right now. The CV case is my current edc. Thats my general introduction so im a noob here too!

    Remember that we were all new to knives once, we didn't know anything. And if we were lucky someone with a generous amount of patience and understanding was willing to take the time to teach us, even if it meant pushing their patience and understanding to the limit.
