I lurked for a while on a previous forum before starting to chime in every once in a while. I don't always have a whole lot to add given the depth of experience and knowledge here, but there are definitely times to add a point of view here or there or to ask questions to clarify something. Lurkers are definitely welcome to come on in from the shadows

Just my luck, but on the bright side, maybe I'll end up just making my own, and end up saving a couple of bucks in the mean time.
In addition, it seems like it's a huge plus to get to know you guys in here, not just for the range of knowledge, but knowing what goes into producing a knife by hand. Not to mention, when it does come time for me to go the full custom route, which makers to choose, and how much is on their plates at the time to know what kind of a wait I'm in for.
I lurked for ages before I realised there are many more forums that are accessible once you have registered. Felt a bit stupid when I finally did
I've lurked on this forum for a while now and learnt a hell of a lot. This is a great source for knife information and its definitely fueled a new addiction.
