    Just for Fun: What type of knife knut are you?

    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.

    Over-analytical cheapskate. I'm poor and discerning.

    Minimalist dilettante. I tend to go as big as I can in a hobby and then continually strip down until I have exactly what I wanted and needed in the first place.

    I started wanting edge retention then I got into sharpening, then steel (where there is too much variation and uncertainty to really learn much without a lot of investment) then tinkering and testing where I currently sit. My friends have long decided I've lost touch with reality. I can't say I disagree.

    We are all just crazy, hopeless, and knuts.

    I would put myself in two categories: Sharp I like things sharp - Foodie who wants to have good stuff to cook with (knives - pans - pots - plates - everything)

    Started out as a sharp edge nut, then moved into master piece knife nut, then buy a lot of expensive JNAT and sharpening nut, then buy old crap and fix it myself nut which made me a wood and tool nut. Added all together I beleive I have covered all aspects of madness and consider myself just a nut. Plain and simple.

    hahahahahahahahaha
