After Lance's post, I have to agree with the Salt line Dragonfly. I already mentioned the Dragonfly, but a salt would be even better. Easier to find if just laid down somewhere and forgotten about, very easy to maintain if ended up being gunked up with crud and whatever a 13 year old gets into.
Don't get Wartstein going...we don't need a long winded response about mere mm's of cutting edge and handle length and blah blah blah
Rick, I stated repeatedly that I really like and respect your posts, your knowledge and contributions and even think you are a cool guy. Did this both openly in this forum and via two pms, as you know, and I mean it.
But let me ask you politely and with all respect:
Please stop useless statements like the one above, regardless if they are aimed at me or other forum members.
Imho THIS is what "we" don´t need here, and tbh you are the only forum member I am aware of who can´t help to deviate slightly from the "shiny footprints trail" from time to time. Really not often, but you know what I mean: Things like telling a guy who states that the Rosewood Shaman grip to HIM personally feels like wood, he "should not fill the forum with nonsense" cause for YOU they do not feel like wood.
This is not about sharing and stating opinions anymore, this is just about an unconstructive way of communicating and the beginning of what makes other places on the internet (and in real life) less than ideal places to be.
So many bad things start with NOT directly and respectfully telling someone what one might not like about him
So many bad things start with trying to create a "WE" against someONE else.
In this case I just shared what I think a 13 year old boy might like in a knife, and what I liked at that age. Just to discuss it and to maybe help the OP out, like all others did.
No need to badmouth me or anyone else, just ignore my posts if you don´t like them, I am totally fine with that but still won´t ignore YOURS cause you share very good content very often.
To me this forum is a unique place, cause people discuss in a respectfull and grown up manner, I personally would like to keep it that way.
