It will take time and money to figure out what you like and what works for you,
enjoy the journey.
And if a knife beckons you- don't hesitate, cause you're not the only one it's calling to.
Besides, you could always sell it, if it ends up not suiting you. Also, keep an open
mind- some knives will surprise you.
I'm still such a novice at buying knives, but I've gone through different phases in
my purchases. It's been more of a journey of self discovery. That's one of the
best aspects of this hobby, there are so many avenues to take and explore- always
something to learn.
I tend not to think of a knife that I didn't keep as being a mistake, but rather a
learning experience. One that brings me closer to the knife that I'm really going
to connect with. Knives are such tactile objects, most often times one has
to see it in person, hold it in hand and use it to know if it works for him or not and
that may require purchasing it.
