Compared to some of my friends, I’m definitely not a “knife guy”. They go so far as to have a separate knife for every occasion. By “every”, I really mean every. They also discuss methods, styles, tactics, procedures, the best way to sharpen, hold, wield, store, carry, display, etc for every conceivable purpose.
Me, not so much.
I’m a simple guy, really. As I’ve said before, I have a basic knife for everyday tasks and a multi-tool. I much prefer a well-chosen multi-taskers. Sure, I sharpen them, but I skip the two hour long sharpening sessions with a $300 whet stone set with the $75 strop to clean up the job and instead go straight to my field sharpening kit because the results are faster, sharper, and far more consistent.
Anyway, on to the actual point of today’s post: whilst reading this morning’s news, I saw an ad for these guys.
