When I (try to) explain to non-knife people my passion for knives, I invariably have to simplify it so (1) they can understand what I am talking about and (2) I don't scare them off.
After doing this recently, I got to thinking about the different types of knife knuts.
You have your sharp-edge knuts, your steel freaks, professional knife (ab)users, product tester types, craftsmen/knifemakers, the foodie who wants the best sh!t...and more I am sure.
Of course, these categories are just made-up and probably a bunch of crap, but we all came for different reasons.
I was a foodie who wanted to learn how to sharpen knives. My first post (@ KF) was about getting an edge pro or going with stones.
