What are your "against the grain" thoughts, beliefs, or preferences?
I guess the point I'm slowly working towards is this; do carpenters go to hammer forums to geek out over new hammers, nails, levels, or tape measures? Do they want the most extreme materials, with custom colors and lightweight materials, sold in limited batches, from specific retailers?
For the first, I don't care for flippers or tip-up carry. Which is clearly against the grain of the industry as a whole since probably 90% of new knives made are flippers and tip-up carry.
For the second, yes, they do. For example, this is more geared towards mechanic (not carpentry) tools, but here's a forum with a tools section: https://www.garagejournal.com/forum/
(I found the Garage Journal forum because I picked up an old tool box at a thrift store and was researching it. There's a thread that's over 500 pages
just about vintage tool boxes: https://www.garagejournal.com/forum/sho ... hp?t=49743
