    Spouses vs. Knives

    How do knives fit into the evolution of your relationship?

    For instance:
    * When did you feel safe exposing your knife fetish?
    * What things do you hide?
    * What was the first big problem?
    * Or is everything fine and s/he encourages you to spend hours on KKF?

    For me, my wife started me on my fetish, and she also encouraged me to by my first $1,000+ knife with the understanding that she could buy something for herself (a purse). She didn't like me sharpening in the kitchen, so I moved things out to the garage with a nice sharpening station. When I am on KKF and she asks what I am doing, I reply: "I'm surfing pornography." It's easier to admit that than knife stuff.

    We don't talk too much about how much stuff costs but luckily, we have friends that are into cars and photography, lol.

    At first it was "I need to do research...it's for my job!" Then it was "But if I do other things, it costs money, this is free...and I can use the passarounds at my job!" and now it's "But it's my job!".

    Sometimes life works out that way, God willing.

    My wife enjoys cooking as much as I do. She really did not think much of the first Hiro I bought (neither did I), but she really liked the paring and petty knives Pierre Rodrigue made for us. Those were followed by a Boardsmith, which she also liked. There have been a few more things since then , but she does not protest much. Helps that this is the second marriage for both of us -- it's kind of a 'whatever makes you happy, dear' kind of thing

    I'm 26 and single. This isn't a problem for me.

    Since she is trying single-handedly to restart the economy by buying clothes, shoes, WII supplies, and other randomness on Etsy; a few hundred dropped by me here and there is let go. Plus I'm investing in my craft, right? Its like a painter getting new brushes.

    The knives are easy to conseal. The power hammer, hydraulic press, grinder, and three forges to make the knives...... not so much.

    That I can see. It wasn't until I bought cushions for a chair by my garage sharpening station that it brought attention -- a hydraulic press on the other hand would have begged MANY questions.
