hey people..i don't know if this is the correct thing to do but i'm gonna do it anyway. =) i'm new to the forum and don't know too much about knives. well actually i hardly know anything!! but i do have my first knife and as i said in another post bill mcwilliams gave it to me. isn't he cool? it's a spyderco calypso jr. i hear that it's a pretty good knife but i really don't know enough to know. =) but i have been enjoying it. the only major cutting i've done tho is some boxes..hehe. but it was fun! i've been told if i wanna learn about knives to get the knives98 or 99 book. so maybe i will when i get some money. (probably not for a few years since i'm a college student!) hope to have a great time with this stuff!!!
