I thought it was funny people were posting factory edged knives to the show your users thread. Seems I triggered a few folks by pointing that out.
Ahh I see. I get your point but all "users" start as new, right? I just looked back at that thread. At the point you made your comment there were only a handful of pics posted which includes mine. I may be mistaken but it's a pretty safe assumption your comment was directed at me.
Some of you guys just don't seem to get that we all enjoy the hobby and use our knives in different ways. What's a well worn knife to me might seem like a almost new knife to you. I like variety and carry something different every day. I have quite a few to choose from. So none of them look like I've been out chopping down trees with them (I have an ax and limb saws for that). I'm currently a warehouse and production manager for a cabinet company. I use one or both of the knives I have on me for something pretty much every day. If I don't have something I need to open or cut they stay in my pocket.
I'll never understand why a couple of you guys act like those who don't use their knives as you do are inferior. Must be an ego thing I guess
No offense, and I might be missing something here, but I really don't get how you came to that conclusion??
And by "don't get it" I mean I personally just don't see the logic behind it, not that I'd want to attack you!
But honestly, never, ever since I joined this forum I read any comment that would imply anyone who does not use knives in a certain way (or not at all) would be "inferior"...?
Much like when I (who uses knives quite a bit) state that in the context of this forum, have very little knowledge when it comes to steels and only basic sharpening skills, was ever called or felt "inferior"...
I am also just generally interested in how / how frequently/ in what tasks/ at all people are really using and sharpening their knives. But that's more in a statistical way plus out of interest for the whole "knife-world" generally, and I am glad when everyone has his or her own, personal way of enjoying knives, and all are equally fine with me. From just collecting and looking at knives, to heavily using them professionally.
