I think is cool! I have learned more about knives by reading the postings in one night than I ever knew. Yeah, okay so I'm a rookie!
I know what you mean! This place is great,
it is a great source of information. Just don't underestimate the entertainment value of Bladeforums.

Welcome to BFC Sam1! For a real kick, try searching the archives as well. The collected wisdom here is awesome, with some of the top makers and manufacturers in the business posting here, not to mention so many experienced collectors, users and just plain lovers of knives. It can be a rollercoaster but it's a heck of a ride. If you haven't checked out the shopforum, I highly recommend it.


I get some pleasure from finding a relentlessly peaceful use for a combative looking knife.
Sam, welcome to the Forums.
Some of us that have been around for awhile often forget what a great resource this place is and start to take everything for grandted. For a FNG, just getting settled in and keeping up with the current posts only to find there's years of posts to search through must be overwhelming.
Thanks for reminding me. Take your shoes off, sit a while, enjoy yourself.

If you weren't a KnifeKnut when you came in here, you soon will be if you stay.

Welcome to the forums! You'll meet some very cool people, and get to interact with some of the movers and the shakers in the world of cutlery. This place is definitely cool.
Welcome, Sam1. Wonderful bunch of knife folks here. When I started out here I read as many of the past posts as I could. Take a few days off of work and catch up, it's fun!

Wclome aboard!

You are why we are here

Mike, We don't have a life?

This place actually sucks.
I'd suggest locking your wallet with all your cash, credit cards, etc. in a safe and throwing the combination out before you proceed with reading.

Knowledge and fun are granted here though!


Welcome Sam.......
When I first came in I was welcomed. You won't find a better place to hang out.
You have come to the right place.

Life is good........


Always do right....this will gratify some and astonish the rest.
Hear hear!

A few useful details on UK laws and some nice reviews!
Last night my wife said "are you coming to bed?". "Just a few more minutes", I replied. Two hours later I got to the point where my eyes wouldn't focus anymore so I quit for the night. Lots of good info in the archives. I think that I have my "mad money" spent for the next few years. Now if I can just convince my wife that these are things I "need".........
