Can’t believe it hasn’t been said.
The Sebenza is worth it.
I like thinner stock on edc knives.
If I plan to use it on wood for any reason however, thicker spine is better.
You'll never find "the one"
Never stay glued to social media 24/7 for the purpose of winning the opportunity to buy a knife.
And when you do find the so called "one" the Honeymoon will wear off, and the hunt for a new one begins. We are never truly happy, or satisfied. We just keep on settling until the next purchase, and pray to the gods of the knife world that the next one will be the "one", but it never is.
I have strange taste and I tend to like the knives others don’t.
IIRC, it was PayPal Credit... Of course, it was my own problem...
It's ok to have some that do nothing but make you smile when you fidget with them. I came to terms with owning more knives than days of the week long ago...
Some people got false security with knives they own/have/carry ...
Don't lend them to others.
A falling knife has no handle!
Cost means nothing if it's dull.
Don't practice aerials with a balisong without shoes on or near a ceiling fan.
never, ever, never buy a Ganzo and tell anybody about it.
The first part is more right...
Rationalizing credit card spending. I always tell myself I'll pay it off over the course of 2 or 3 months, but the night before the bill is due I get bothered by it and pay it off. Usually have to sell something from the collection to make that happen, since sadly only a few models south of $500 turn my head these days. That's not a brag, because I don't have the income of someone that should have a $750 folding knife hobby. I'm not even certain I make Spyderco money.
Pick the right tool for the job.
It's not really yours until it cuts you the first time.
Blood washes off.
-Knives lesson - I used to think I needed a stout blade as I’m typically pretty rough on things. While I can still appreciate an overbuilt knife, a simple well made slipjoint can do most cutting tasks much better and hold up perfectly.
-Blade forums lesson - Many folks on here are very knowledgeable but also very stuck in their ways, take advice, comments, and unfortunately sometimes insults here with a grain of salt. Research as best you can before asking a question here, it’s probably been asked and some folks seem to get upset about it being asked again.
Dude you can get the small set of multiple grit Venev diamond stones for about $100 bucks and also learn freehand at the same time. I was a bit shy to do freehand until I watched some YouTube videos with Michael Christy. Start with his short Bevel Alignment video. Hope that helps.
Have come to terms of having more than the year has days
Are you telling me I can't intelligently defend myself with a 3 inch pocket knife against 5 armed bad guys? Do you even know how sharp this thing!? /s
