RW here,

So, I thought I would purchase a couple of new knives, and found this great forum. I then started to realize all I don't know and that I may not be ready to make the right decision yet.

After research I have discovered the need for advancement of my own sharpening and use skills first. Also, to figure out what I like and don't like about my current knives.

To that end I have purchased three decent knives from local thrift shops to practice sharpening and use skills, then on to a better equipment as I progress.

Thanks to you all and this forum for saving me a bunch of money and time in not chasing a 'holy grail' of equipment before I am ready to have the ability to care and use it.

Cheers, :thumbsup:

RW

How intelligent and un-American not to just throw money at it (like I did). Welcome!

I didn't think there was any other way...perhaps still don't. Pretty sure you can't see any "game", as it really is, without having a representative sample of the good stuff in your hands. Trying to be sensible will only cost you in the long term.

Speaking of parting with my money... The thrift store knives I found are pretty OK steel from what I can tell. I had to dig through about 200 at several stores. Whopping cost of $1 per. :)
