    The unofficial, non binding, carries no weight, 2021 forum knife possibility discussion thread

    A CV peanut that is in almost anything other than yellow plastic would certainly get me interested especially if it is in the $60 range and i haven't bought a forum knife yet a lower price point could probably boost sales enough to meet that minimum if the chosen knife has enough mass appeal.

    Modifying a metallography polisher to sharpen knives

    I have been wondering if anyone has tried modifying a manual metallography polisher to sharpen knives. When I was in college I spent a fair bit of time polishing samples for metallography using manual polishers and always thought that with a little modification it would they would make great...

    Is this specific knife decent? On sale? Coolina...

    depending on what steel they use they look a bit overly similar to the forged in fire branded knives(have used forged in fire branded knives and do not recommend the geometry sucks and the balance is terrible) do you have a source that indicates the stock thickness and thickness behind the edge...

    Rough Ryder Reserve: New Premium Rough Ryder Line

    That probably won't be economically viable in the next 50 years even if the knives are extremely cheaply made it currently costs roughly $10,000 just to get a pound of material in orbit let alone the moon which is much farther away than standard near earth orbit so the costs are going to be much...
