Hey can you give a new guy some help?


Jul 15, 1999
Hi there I am an avide outdoorsman and love knives! I got my first one at 6 and have todate about 20. What I am posting for is that I love to write and would like to do knife reviews and write-ups about them for magazines, books, etc... but there is one small problem how do I start? Is there anyone out there that is willing to take a chance on a new guy and let him test their knives? Please help me out! Thanks
Ask Joe Talmadge or Dexter Ewing, maybe Email them...they would be the people to ask
