    Working on fishing boats in my teens. In my Dads shop as a kid with all his polished edge carbon wood chisels.

    Most of adult life putting out banquets in Hotels that's how really got into knives. Collected Ice Chisels too carbon & stainless.

    Got my first carbon Japanese Gyuto in early 80's & became a total carbon junkie Japanese Gyuto , Yanagiba & Chinese Cleavers.

    I'm a guy
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I always had a knife as a kid for fishing and playing in the woods.
    The last couple of years I am really passionate about cooking and although I have lots and lots of cookware I never had a great knife till just recently.
    Cooking has become a lot more fun now and I want to eat veggies every day now so I can practice my cutting skills as much as possible.

    A potential girl friend asked me recently if I was "Obsessed with cooking and knives".. I told her of course not, everyone with a compost pile cuts up their vegetables into little pieces - it digests in the composter faster. And the knives, well this one is stainless for when I can't clean it right away, this one is stainless clad when I want a little more heft and sharp but still stainless, this one is carbon for when I want one really sharp and this one is for weekends. These are called 240's. And over here....

    So what does one call an ex potential gf?

    Dave maybe you should have put more on the cooking obsession & less on the knives. Girls like guys that can cook

    I've always been a different kind of girl. I'm very feminine: hair, makeup, shoes, purses, jewelry and all that but, I do love finely crafted steel and guns. If I could, I'd totally embed one of my vintage crystals into the end of a wa handle lol.

    It started when I was a kid and won a little red swiss army pocket knife at the air fair. I thought it was the coolest thing back then and I still have it around here somewhere. Then as I got older I really got into swords and dirks, being heavily influenced by playing mortal combat and watching highlander lol. In my 20s it was MMOs, which is where I met my husband oddly enough. Now it's because I enjoy and appreciate find tools while cooking. There's just something about beautifully made steel that I love. This forum doesn't help either. Y'all are not very good influences

    I'm a serial collector. My last thing was guitars. I had 52 at one point. But I couldn't play a lick.

    I figured I'd collect something I know how to use.

    I'm down to six guitars. I've almost kicked that one.
