    I guess that officially makes me a knife guy.

    I was only making a wild ass guess at the price of the WEPS; that's a lot of coin for a sharpening set-up. It better cook, clean and provide happy endings too.

    I guess I'm just not a real knife guy for not understanding...

    When you have a fellow knife nut ask you to buy him some knives, because the place won't ship to his state and so his wife won't know! You say yes because you are an enabler, and decide that since you are buying him knives you might as well get one while your at it too, because it wouldn't be fair if only he got them!

    For a while while they were backordered for months the Pro Pack 1 was on sale for 30% off, so I bought one. Was about $280 even with the discount, but at that price I went for it. If you have enough knives it makes sense to get a guided system or drop a lot of money on stones, but $700 is a bit excessive imho.

    I'm not really sure if that's a thinly veiled threat or not but let's carry on with this great thread.

    Maybe I'm just jelous, I can only imagine what your knife budget is if you can spend that much on a sharpener. I dont yet own a 650.00 knife. so to spend that on a sharper is crazy to me.

    I can free hand a knife sharp enough to shave hair off my arm, how much sharper do you need it than that? but to each their own, if thats what makes ya happy, do whatcha like. I enoy sharpening the old fashion way.

    When you pause, rewind, and zoom until you are 100% positive of the knife you just spotted.

    HA! Nobody wants to watch an action movie at my house. I'll spend 5 whole minutes doing the slowmo shuffle just to get a positive ID on a Cold Steel tanto. Those Hollywood guys need to just do us a favor and shoot a nice 2-3 second closeup of the knife instead of a 1/10 second blur.

    They really need to add a listing of knives and swords in the credits..

    Actor 1 knife - gerber x
    Actor 2 knife - Guest starring - Busse x

    It would save a whole lot of hassle

    My school's handbook technically forbids *any* person or item from being on campus. The weapon policy states 'any item that by use or design can cause injury'. This effectively prohibits anyone from setting foot on campus.

    In keeping with the thread, if your Trp CO comes to you with units funds and the instructions 'spend no more than $xxxxx.xx, everyone needs a folding knife, get what is best'

    School policies have no legal ramifications (except the few that coincide with local laws, i.e. drugs, assault, etc) but will get you expelled from the institution.
