you have an extremely interesting hobby of watching people raise ****, waiting for someone to point it out, and then blaming the latter for starting things.

some people might start to get the idea youre doing that in bad faith.
I just don’t like when people are bullied and get personally attacked. No need to tell the guy to get his head examined or telling him that he has issues because he linked an article that you think is not a big deal. You could make the same points without attacking him personally. This is a relatively civilized place most of the time, I’d like it to stay this way.

Sigh...

With all due respect, you could just disengage. That dude has been on my ignore list for some time. You should try it out. Works like a champ. :)

This seems appropriate for the moment...

yeah idc.

he came in here trying to push his ideology on the same day that ideology was responsible for the death of 8 people. that's 100x more distasteful than anything I said.

like @HumbleHomeCook said there's an ignore list that you're free to use.

@HumbleHomeCook is clearly a wiser individual than I am and I could use the ignore feature, but like you correctly pointed out I am free to make this choice. I choose not to use it because I want to see all the comments and opinions not just the ones I agree with.

Your excuse for attacking him is pretty weak. You are building a straw man argument that him not wanting to support a company that helps to destroy guns is the same as promoting mass murder, thus you are justified in attacking him. Criticize the article if you want, personal attacks are not warranted or needed.

all I said was that maybe Benchmade had a reason, and a perfectly reasonable one is being tired of the mass shootings. it's there, go read it.

"personal attacks" "bullying" you seem really concerned about that. hope to see you come to the rescue of people who actually need defending and not just someone who feels a need to push their agenda in an unrelated thread.

also it's worth noting I haven't blocked you either, because occasionally you say something of value, even though I think all of your complaining is actually not at all about providing a space to actually talk about things, but actually crocodile tears so that you can shut down any discussion that doesnt align super closely with what you believe. at least Im willing to be honest when I disagree with stuff.

you know what @Barmoley this actually raises an interesting question. because in the "what are you shooting" thread when someone went way off on me when I made the comment that I didnt personally approve of sport hunting, not even in response to anyone but just stating how I personally enjoy the hobby, you didnt say anything to him about respecting that I might have a different point of view.

where were you?

@HumbleHomeCook, I’ve got that same little orange Buck- Christmas present last year from my 5yo son 😀. Actually a pretty nice little blade that sharpens super easily. Stays in my desk at work mainly for apples.

yes on point a fun little knife I got recently is the Serge Pachenko Persian slipjoin. he made some production runs of these at a very reasonable price. super slim and useful. not my picture but you can see both the cool blue and flat ti, I ended up buying one of each myself and gave the blue one to my father.

Yeah they are handy little knives, well worth the price. I hate Buck's insistence on recurve blades on so many of their offerings but on these small knives it is hardly noticeable.

I have not tried to push any ideology. I have simply brought attention to some of the business's practices this community may not be aware of. You may decide for yourself to support those decisions or not. I tend to be selective in whom I give my money to .I see this no different from drawing attention to other practices such as flipping, scamming or donating to charity.

I’m a simple man. I like simple things. This is about as basic as they come, but always gets the job done. Last month I used it to pry a piece of glass out of my car tire. Luckily it wasn’t deep enough to cause a blowout.
Took 5 minutes to resharpen the knife.
I've got a half a dozen or so Opinels. They're scattered around my house, car, and work. I am constantly losing and finding them again. For $10-14 (and no plastic) you can't really go wrong.

I arguably enjoy pocket knives MORE than kitchen knives. i have several from the usual suspects, Benchmade, Spyderco, and SAK.

but i was recently gifted a replacement knife for one i lost in a dark theater as a much younger dude. i forgot how cool it was! tiny, slim..carbon blade that gets SHARP as heck. i have been carrying it for a month and really enjoying it. its a Schrade Old Timer 50T. sometimes it's nice to slow down life and open a knife with two hands.

summer time i switch to a Swiss Army FARMER simply for the beer bottle opener. hahah

when i hike, i grab my GiantMouse ACE BIBLIO which would coincidentally be my porn name if i worked in that industry.

I love my few Benchmades. their warranty Department is staffed by a bunch of over achievers. great customer support. they fixed one of my knives twice after I beat on it in a tunnel construction project. both times it came back looking new. the last time, they retrofitted new bearings in the hinge.

but here is my favorite "modern" folder. out of Italy, the GiantMouse Ace Biblio. I sharpened it last night. I put it away after a camping trip. I was splitting wood and cutting marshmallow sticks for all the kids. I was the only adult that brought a knife!! that M390 steel is robust. a tad difficult to sharpen if I let it get really dull.

I'm a pocket knife noob. What do people think of Kramer's folder offerings? I'm more a traditionalist when it comes to blade profile and overall design and this aesthetic appeals to me. Is the steel and hardness up to Kramer's usual standard?

that Kramer is beautiful!! that would be an awesome small game hunting knife. looks like it would peel a rabbit, and look spectacular while doing so.

modern looking traditional knives are becoming popular now.

well, assuming you're not joking (it's Kramer so it's hard to tell), but if not and you're into that sort of thing I'd look the way of William Henry knives.

Yes, I was being serious. Although not sure if your WH reference was a joke. Those look hideous.

they make something for everyone, yes the stuff they display on their site is completely ridiculous but they make a nice variety of plain, wood inlayed, etc. knives like this:

Thats more like it
yeah, and Im very sympathetic to not liking the stuff they have on display on their website. for a company capable of making such subtle, well executed knives, they seem intent on pushing their gaudy fountain pens and stuff that looks like this dude would wanna buy it at the mall:

each one of their models comes in a more "basic" configuration at least, usually to be found at dealers. theyre light, thin, and cut like crazy.
