Growing up my dad always had a love for knives. Him and my Grandfather always had an old yellow case trapper in their pocket. By the age of 5 they had whittled, made me rubber band guns and slingshots. Much to my moms chagrin, I received my 1st case trapper when I was 6 years old. It went everywhere with me. I cut, whittled, stabbed, dug and did probably everything in the world that you should not do with a knife.

How To: Trade Knives and Gear Successfully
There is nothing like a deal gone wrong to help lessen your desire to trade knives or other gear. The purpose of this entry is to serve as a type of framework
If I look back a good sixteen years, I was outside in the woods of Arkansas wearing my dad's old BDU's with my prized Marine Combat Knife, a Camillus modeled after what we see today as the legendary Ka-Bar 1217 and various other models. I remember we had woods for days back behind that house, so I could do what I wanted. Now every thing that was ever cut was cut with that Camillus knife. I was able to buy it with my allowance, and over all the years I have had that thing, it only bit me once.
There is nothing like a deal gone wrong to help lessen your desire to trade knives or other gear. The purpose of this entry is to serve as a type of framework that will increase the chances of satisfaction of both parties involved. It is my hope that this will teach newbies a thing or two and will remind the more experienced that each transaction should be treated as if it is the one we will be judged by for all time. You'd think that this would be pure common sense, but apparently not. Some people
