Hey @josemartinlopez, your new avatar caught my attention.
I assume humor was part of the intent. However, IMO you're no longer a 'noob'—considering the knowledge you've acquired and knives collected.
Your avatar got me asking—at what point does a person become a serious kitchen knife collector? To me it can be quite simple, a person becomes a serious knife once they have collected a number of knives that exceeds kitchen requirements. Doesn't matter if this takes place over a decade or a month. What I do for a living is sell art to collectors; someone can be deemed a 'serious collector' after buying just a couple of pieces.
@josemartinlopez has graduated from 'noob' to 'serious collector.'
To the subject of my post, I'm fascinated by what KKFers use as their avatars—sometimes an intentional projection of an ideal, fantasy, humor, statement, etc.
My avatar, a pic of a, ancient Hawaiian poi pounder, linked with cultural identity of where I'm from.
Interested in why people selected the avatar they've used.
