    In the early 80's I worked for a lumber and hardware store. One night there was a break in and the thieves smashed the knife display. There were Schrade pocket knives of all shapes and sizes all over the store. The boxes were smashed and crushed as well. I asked the manager what he was going to do with them. He said sell them at whatever they will sell for. I offered him $50 and he took it. There must have been at least 50 knives. I kept representative samples and gave the rest to relatives and friends. Later I gave some to sons. I probably have 20 or so of the original batch. Most have never been used but a few of them were heavily used. They were all folders and pocket knives. Since then, every time I pass by a knife display in a store that looks dusty and half empty, I always ask if they want to make a deal... in 40 years, nobody wanted to deal...

    sometimes we not only over think things, but we over react. Knives are tools. Pick what twists your pickle, let the other fellow do the same. Sagacity is my middle name.

    Thanks kyratshooter, that was well written and highly informative.

    I used to buy and sell antiques. It's claimed that once knives were sharpened on the unglazed portion of crockery. I don't know if this is fact or fiction.

    You can still do that.. Works passably well too, as long as you don't have anything in the crock...

    I've got some number of "Rocks" that I've used as whetting devices over the years, and an Arkansas Stone or a Missouri Stone is exactly that, a piece of rock.

    I only hunt small and medium sized game, so I use a normal butchering knife.

    That depends. Where are you hunting. What are you hunting. Bear, deer, rabbit, spam?

    David Wells. Psh. It's a direct reflection on his momma. His momma gotta be so stupid, she stared at a cup of orange juice for 12 hours because it said "concentrate." His momma so stupid, she went to the dentist to get a Bluetooth. His wife so ugly she made a blind kid cry. His sister so lazy she stuck her nose out the window and let the wind blow it.

    I like knives a lot.
    Some are historically interesting and others are simply really neat.
    I have a French Foreign Legion trench knife that is a modified Remington P13 bayonet that I picked up in Vietnam.

    My favorite is a sissipuukko. In Suomi or Finnish, sissi translates to guerrilla and puukko is knife.
    It has a unique roller lock system

    The grip is some kind of "rubber" that stays flexible when in freezing temperatures. The blade id Teflon finished. The steel is hard enough to maintain sharpness, but not so hard it is a pain to sharpen.

    A Finnish Sissi or ranger who is a good friend gave it to me.

    AFA, Spam a table knife cuts it quite well.
