The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I'd like to suggest a forum to talk about "Giving Knives Away". What would you part with? and why?
I was thinking about my nephews and how I want to share with them my love of pocket knives. I started thinking what would be a good knife for them and how to present it so they understood its importance.
A safe knife to give the young ones is a Canoe Pattern or something with that type blade. I've given a bunch of knives to the young Outdoorsman and some of their parents have asked me to promote that type knife. I once carried a Canoe Pattern Knife for two years because of this.
I hope I'm putting this is the right place on the forum.
In the past year I have gotten into shaving with a straight razor. I think I remember seeing comments here indicating others also use straight razors. I was wondering if a group could be created for any straight razor shaving discussions. These could include subjects from razor companies, soaps, honing/stropping, stones and/or strops, etc. I've learned there is A WHOLE LOT MORE to this activity than I realized when I decided to start. Of course I was surprised at the prices of some of the stuff so a big benefit of a group like this could be a place to share places to get products at competative prices.
I have been working on and improving my honing skills as well as shaving skills. Most of the info I've gotten to help me has been from the "Straight Razor Place" site and forum. Also, some discussions on the Spyderco forum. I thought there might be enough interest for a group here. Any thoughts?
That's a discussion I remember and even commented on. It's in the sharpening group though and there is so much more about straight shaving I was thinking a group to have somewhere for the other stuff from pre-shaving to post-shaving subjects, products, stuff like that. There may not be enough interest to make a seperate group beneficial.
