    We are hoping to ship the rest of the preorder this week. Barring a catastrophe, they will at least be out by Christmas.

    What about desk ornament!? I have at least 10 knives laid out carefully on my desk all that need something to be done with them.

    I mean, what defines use of a knife? According to the exchange rules?

    Sometimes knives are like women, and the best thing you should do is admire from a distance! :cool:

    Sorry, if knives are like women, than I like to be up close and personal....to see just how dirty they can get!

    isn't admiring a knife the same thing as using it? Lol!
    common refrain of the high end collector

    I don't think admiring and using are the same thing at all! lol Unless you consider using your eyeballs to stare at it as using it to stare at!

    Of course!!! I don’t have any art knives but most of them are made with the intent of only being looked at. Some of them aren’t even sharp!

    my thought's always been that admiring a knife is very different than using a knife. Both are fine, but conflating the two is a little ridiculous
