    Just noticed this thread which is funny because my last post was on the BST forum where a nikiri was up for sale. I commented a little about how I believe people think they would neverrarely use one -it's too specialized etc. I wanted to let people know mine gets used a lot by everyone in the family, unlike some of the larger gyoto's we own. I posted it in part to help the seller and to spread the nikiri love

    I agree with you that sometimes the drool and glws gets a little old and usually doesn't add anything. Although if someone like Pensacola Tiger says that's a great knife it means something, esp. to those of us still new to this

    The only reason I bought my first knife on BST was because of the comments Justine0505 made. He educated me and as I was a new member with very few posts and even less knowledge it gave me the confidence needed to make the purchase.

    Thanks for bring this up though, with six pages of comments it was obviously something that needs/needed to be talked about.

    You make a good point Bill. Comments like that are helpful to the thread and is not what I am speaking of. I'm glad he helped you, and some of us old members (going back to the "other" forum) enjoy adding helpful comments. The magic of google and the search button are miraculous though.

    A forum to me should be a little more than just info. I'm very pragmatic, and hard nosed when it comes to research. But it's always nice when someone helps lighten the mood a little. If this place was all about specs and hard data, it'd lose the human element that has led me to make a couple of awesome off forum buddies.

    Some pretty valid points here.
    I'm guilty of posting the occasional bump comment, not to help anyone 'go to the top of the list' but to show my appreciation for a nice piece of craftsmanship; particularly if it's something produced by one of our own. But not always.
    I would also like to see an option for the OP to flag a b/s/t thread as "sold", but only if it keeps all post content intact. If it is decided that the moderators should flag posts, that's fine...but we don't want to chase down every seller to confirm a sale. You guys gotta work with us.
    I use b/s/t for research when I am considering a purchase, so I would really miss the ability to view those old posts.
    The fluff posts don't bother me that much. The 6 months later "is this still available?" do.
    Todd pretty much stated how I feel in his post.

    You shouldn't. Texas is filled with a ton of nothing. It's big, but most of it is empty. Sure it's a formidable empty full of rattle snakes and mountain lions ready to eat you, along with fire ants and scorpions just for fun, but there are very few people.

    Of course the people that are there are all heavily armed but they are super friendly.
