Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

Jim, I’ve mentioned in forums many times: There are many supposedly “poor” kids out there who are running around in designer basketball shoes that cost about as much as or more than a plain-jane Sebenza. Now, whether they or their parents bought them with illicit money or not, who knows? But they’r...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

That is the takeaway here. The difference is cultural. Sal and Spyderco set the tone here and we abide by it. The crazy thing is that there is very little official moderation on this forum yet things run smooth and stay civil. Bladeforums is HEAVILY moderated and it is a free for all filled with to...

Re: Japanese Tuna Knife maguro bōchō

I was thinking about ordering one up via Amazon until I saw the price. They make Randalls, any Randall, seem cheap in comparison: https://www.amazon.com/Yoshihiro-Heisei ... ast_sto_dp

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

The problems with BF are the same as with society in general, amplified a bit because it is not face to face interaction. To keep my sanity I just use a targeted approach, get the info I need then exfil, pronto. That's true, but I think there's something particularly broken over at BF, especially a...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

I'm curious if anyone else stumbled into BF while searching for a kukri? A good friend of mine has a handful of kukris. He's a knowledgeable individual, so I asked him where to look? He cautiously recommended a company and I went to their website which appears to date from the early 1990's in terms ...

Re: Rush Limbaugh: Dead at age 70

I'll admit that I never really listed to RL all that much. No talk radio, really. But I really appreciated that RL never stopped emphasizing that ultimately he was an entertainer, who became a celebrity. He did not claim to be a "serious journalist" (whatever that means today?) The catch is that he ...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

I am sitting here with my mouth agape! Thank you all for this forum and for this specific thread! Talk about a sanity check! I really wondered about BF? There are a number of bullies/punks that just tear into people with complete impunity. Not sure why they aren't filtered out? While there are some ...
