Hello to all my fellow knife enthusiasts! I wanted to jump on here (this being my first post ive wrote since i just found out about blade forum yesterday) and say how muh i appreciate the knife community, and to also maybe ask for a little bit of help/advice. I recently, about 6 months ago, got into the knife community by watching a certain gentleman on youtube, and i originally watched his channel because he did unboxings of different survival gear monthly boxes. Along with those videos, he is also ex military and owns a knife shop on the east coast, he does videos on knifes and reviews them, and once watching those videos i truly understood what knives were about, and the art and functionality that they brought to the world as a whole. I started doing research and really paying attention to his videos, and then started following other people as well and i got a pretty good base understanding of what was going on, and from there my fascination in knives began. So without getting too long winded, i just want to ask some of you more experienced and long time members to shed any of your wisdom that you can on me and anyone else who might read this thread (although im not counting on a single soul listening to my plea lol) so that i can learn even more and grow to become the most knowledgable man i can be within the knife community. I have ammased some knives over the months, and whereas before i would get a knife because "it looked cool", i know make educated decisions based on blade steel, functionality, purpose, design, etc. And to pick something, no matter how big or small, while putting all that thought and effort into it truly makes what you pick a custom in its own sense. I say that because although there are other "customs" out there, to me a custom is something that you purchase not because of its eclusivity (although that never hurts lol), but because it brings you purpose and joy to your everyday life. And since everyones lives are different, or CUSTOM should we say, that knife therefore becomes a custom knife for that individual. So please knife enthusiasts/community, i implore you to shed your light down on me and teach me your ways!!! I truly love you people and you will forever have a special place in my heart, and because of that i thank you all! I look forward to hearing from you all soon!
