Since I'm new here, but have been a knife guy for years, I was wondering what was the biggest/most important lesson you've learned about knives since you started using and/or collecting them. I'm wondering what kind of wisdom you guys have to share.

What is the one thing you've learned by yourself over the years that you think is an important piece of knowledge for anybody interested in knives?

They only get more expensive.

The inexpensive ones work just as well as the expensive ones.

I really like cold steel folders.

That's two things I learned.

Define “work” :rolleyes:
They might cut as well as the expensive ones
But that’s only 1/2 the equation now, isn’t it :cool:

Can't decide which one I'd rank as "most important", so here they are...

1a) Put 10 of us together at a table at Blade Show and we'll come up with 12 different opinions about the same thing. And that's OK!
1b) Nothing's "best" for everybody, but each one of us has knives, sharpeners, lube, or techniques that are "best" for us.
