I have carried the same three knives for at least the last year. There is some duplication. I could get all my cutting done with the Alox Electrician, but I don’t have to. I’m not interested in trying. I do this hobby so I can play with a lot of knives. Our forbears often stuck with one knife, sometimes for decades, out of necessity, or because the knife was regarded as a tool, not a form of amusement.
