The more knives you own the smarter and better looking you become.
Don't buy spares unless you really like a particular knife and it's discontinued. The only spares I buy are Vic SAKs and that is insurance against loosing one (which seldom happens).
Unless you believe yourself to be a collector, buy only knives you may use unless you just like wasting money.
The next knife is the best knife
If you like knifes, learn to sharpen, every steel eventually gets dull.
Spending more doesn't necessarily mean better.
Everyone's taste is different; don't always be a sheep, but try a staple knife every now and again.
Don't automatically hand a knife to non-knife folks.
At the end of the day is just a freakin knife, does it cut, do you like it, you didn't go into debt for it, keep it, use it, enjoy it...
Cost does not equal quality or usefulness. My most used functional knives are SAKs and Moras..........wish I knew that before buying $400+ knives only to be kicked back out of my pocket by -$30 knives
That some knives are good for cutting apples
Some for making apple sauce
Some for cutting down the tree
I don't have enough things to cut.
don't close them on ur finger
I've been attracted to knives and EDC'ed since I was 6. Never understood why, it seemed weird and irrational as many other people don't care.
What I learned here is that I have the "sharp gene" as Sal once called it. I'm not alone, Knives matter
The most important stuff I learned from this..
Knife Nirvana exists. It happens when you accumulate enough knives that you will never have to worry about sharpening a knife ever again; because even at the highest rate of use, you will never be ever to go through that many knives in the time remaining to you.
NEVER BUY ON CREDIT...UNLESS YOU ALREADY HAVE THE CASH TO PAY THE BILL
WHEN IT COMES. (that 20% interest will kill ya quicker'n a bullet.)
Your credit card has 20% interest?
1. Never loan your knife to anyone.
2. Don't believe a damn thing you read on the Internet.
Most Important lesson about knives?
Everything is here at ‘BLADE FORUMS’....what else?
So, should anyone believe what you just said in this line?
Do you ?
I learned not to lend my knife a long time ago. The answer is no and I'll only say it once. If you want to repeat your request, please face the wall while you speak because I'm finished listening to you.
I can't say it's any one thing. The last couple of years here on BF have been like graduate school for me. With emphases on folder design, steels, and sharpening.
It's been continuing education for me after 30 years of daily knife use in restaurants (all fixed blades and minimal sharpening skills).
To be fair, it also came with a tuition. Like others before me, it takes a while and is expensive to learn what you really like and will use. Especially if you dip your toes into the custom world.
Consequently, I have many many more than the dozen folders and fixed blades I keep in rotation.
If you know how many knives you have, you don’t have enough.
I have a lesser chance of losing an expensive knife because I pay more attention to its whereabouts.
A good knife, like a good banjo or bicycle, invites more use.
Tools separate hominids from other species. Knives are important tools.
