    I like those vids, but I had something more methodical and comprehensive in mind, and more "from the ground up".
  6. The definitive KKF knife skills video - your opinion needed

    (TL;DR: Does the KKF need its own knife skills video, made by our best experts, to counteract the sh!tty stuff noobs have to deal with on youtube?)

    It's not really worth the trouble. The bending is noticeable if you look for it but I guess most peope would never notice. It is good enough for a beater and it is not worth the trouble to me to send...
