Am I the only one that starts off thinking this may be good, and then gets more and more frustrated with it.
The fact it ends with this nearly brought a tear to my eye
You need to feel at ease when holding your knife, so look for a blade that has sturdy leverage and a secure and full-length tang, which is the metal at the back of a blade connected to the handle, providing more balance and making it more durable. Quality knives also have their handles attached to the clamp with rivets.
Did you not learn anything!!!!!!! QUALITY KNIVES ALSO HAVE THEIR HANDLES ATTACHED TO THE CLAMP WITH RIVETS
Oh and I've been to the stores, they do most of their sharpening service using a Tormek and the odd dished king stone, and "specialise in knives with lots of layers as they are sharper", disappointed was an understatement, and then I saw the prices......
Edit, on reflection the article is maybe not that bad, but could have been oh so much better
