I'm a new forum member here, and started out in the Blade Forum with Mantis Knives. while everyone on here seems to be knife nuts, there does seem to be a few shots across the bow being taken by some forum members.
Syderco has some very kewl and funtional blades, and blade interests vary around the world. I don't think that any one company has "the best" product out there. the same reason for so many companies, is the same reason why we have freedom of choice. interests are limited by the boundaries of the mind.
constructive criticism is one thing. difference of opion is one thing. but I don't feel any forum gains something positive from spiteful commentaries about other companies.
I'd like to think this is a forum where people can have fun and gain some knowledge about blades. I've learned a lot since I've been on here. I already know "nasty"... I divorced one.
I don't need to see her here also...
