    Great to have you on board Mr Love!
    Most folks could just as easily
    be knife accumalators,
    if not for the fact that they
    somehow become far too
    carried away with technical perfection...
    So it is pretty admirable and awesome
    Imho, for anyone with the ability
    to give new life to old stuff
    which can then still serve a purpose :)
    Its a commendable attitude
    which the world in general
    could use more of in this overly
    wasteful disposable attitude
    of materialistic consumerism.
    Enjoy your visits to this forum.
    I m sure it will only enrich
    this knife loving community
    with all your forth coming
    sharings from this day on.

    Hey Mike. Welcome to the forum! Similar to you, I used to take apart and clean and reassemble old knives in my grandfather’s workroom as a kid and have been fascinated with the form and function ever since. Lurked on this forum for years and learned so much from the members here before joining. A tremendous reservoir of knowledge. And the members are so generous with their time and input. I joined recently and let’s just say the intensity of my interest and buying has gone...err...parabolic! So watch out haha! For what it’s worth I find the Imagur app to be the easiest way to post photos, although I’m sure there are many good options. Look forward to seeing your knives and best wishes!

    Thanks Wilfred. I am about 30 miles to the south east of Frederick MD and used to live there as well. I am aware of one on Market St. but have not been in there yet. Maybe I am concerns that I cannot control impulsive behavior. HaHa, I get up there regularly so guess I need to check it out. Thanks. Are you in the MD, VA, WVA, Pa area?

    I'm in Pittsburgh, quite a haul to Frederick , the distance is all that keeps me safe from bankruptcy. That does seem to be the closest knife store to me.
