There is nothing like iKC anywhere on the web.
When I first was introduced to this community format/technology back early last year there was no doubt in my mind it would
provide for (cause "WE" are the community
)- the next generation knife collector community. I'm also going to guess it will remain the most cutting-edge technology until the real geeks of the world make it so we can show our knives to each other in 3-D or High Def, or until we can use all of our 5 senses to complement our web experience.
I sincerely appreciate your participation here. iKC is alive; It is dynamic. It is 24/7.
Almost daily I have members telling me how much they like our community and what it offers our hobby. Comments like this truly make my day. Thank you for helping me make our community what it is today.
For the curious, here are a few iKC factoid

Come April when we celebrate our first year, I'll update the stats then, but as I was geeking around, I couldn't help but find these stats significant and thought you would too.
Thanks again for making iKC a knife place to call home!
