Ok, I'm looking for some info on what makes knives tick. Our collection depends on:
1 - Looks, (is it pretty, does it have nice lines, is the style up to date or antique?), you can add more to this list yourself.
2 - Material, types of steel used in the blade, types of handles, liners,etc.
3 - Feel - now this catagory is tuff, some people like myself buy from the internet, I depend on reviewers to tell me something, I understand you can go into a sporting goods store and pick up a knife to feel weight, form, balance etc.
Another big problem I have is no one tells me the difference of lets say "washers", ya washers, when you flick open your folder I want to know what super washers am I buying. I think "Precision machined electro plated titanium" might sound good, you know I just kidding. This is one example but what is the difference between a Kershaw speedsafe washer and a Strider costing thousands?
