    I enjoy the box openings with a Bic stick pen.

    LOL.

    Yep. Then they steal your pen because theirs doesn’t write worth a darn.

    fwiw, 'knife user' skills to me would be people who use a knife for work, like a chef/butcher or a woodcarver



    when these types of professionals talk about knife ergonomics, they have veritas (imho)

    Well, dang it....since I only sell truck parts, I'm obviously not qualified to talk about knives anymore. Where's my spoon???

    that's just silly - of course you can talk about knives

    I'm saying which knife users carry more weight (for me, personally) when they talk about ergos

    FTFY. I would record a video demonstration but PETIA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Imaginary Animals) would come after me.

    So not average people who use knives for average edc tasks talking about average edc knives? Nick doesn't really do kitchen or wood working knife reviews. His reviews are mostly edc type knives used for average edc tasks. His reviews are the topic of this thread.

    Gotcha.

    But those guys/gals use specialized tools for their jobs. Tools that don’t generally fit in pockets.

    What constitutes a “user” of pocket knives? I need me some pocket knife truth.

    My old boss:(:confused:
    A work shop FULL of box knives . . . she pulls her EDC = folded open scissors to cut open boxes and remove packing slips etc.

    I did see something funnier knife wise once though : A machinist (no less) cutting up cardboard boxes with a serrated knife. Sawing away for what seemed like for ever, curls and shavings of the box all over the floor. It was at that moment that I figured that if I ever became a knife guy I wouldn't be into serrated knives for general EDC use. Sure they are good for somethings but . . .

    At that point I was into box knives for cutting up boxes. Before the engine machine shop job I worked at a place where we had box knives and a hanging strop so everyone could keep their box knife sharp.

    Then I became a knife guy and tried all manner of various folder and fixed blade . . . modifying them thinner or reprofiling them.

    Until
    I came full circle and now use a box knife to cut up boxes ;) :cool:

    This thread has shown me that nick is a decent guy, as well as an asset to our community.

    I still imagine this dude when I hear him though

    I find the most pure entertainment value in watching him unbox a whole group of really craptasticly horrible knives. Always good for a load of LOL.

    I always wonder if he just puts the whole pile in the dumpster when he's done.

    So I look him up to see what he is about. Is he also that Tac guy who wears the mask?

    Dident see any Ontario SP10 Marine Raider reviews or any BlackJack 125 reviews so have no reason to watch him. Way too many other things to watch.
