I seem to remember discussions in the past around the question of sharpening ceramic bladed knives. I have been under the impression that this was a hopeless task and not really worth the effort. Now…Continue

Happy birthday, John! I hope you picked up a new knife or two! (It just so happens that today is my wife's birthday as well -- we're having family time in front of the TV watching her favorite show "Dancing With The Stars" as I write this.) Which means it's already October 13th for you... So I hope it was a great day!
thanks, i have been collecting for 8-10 years and i have most of the knives i was aiming to get when i started and i'm still going and i have quite a few that weren't on the collection list maybe 6-700, but that's okay at least i'm not spending money on drugs or alcohol and that is grat my girlfriend thinks-she was married to an alcoholic for 11 years so yeah we are doing great she even buys me knives for gifts holidays and birthdays, my favorites are really old knives and war relics-knives, i have a couple of pal r.h. knives one a rh-36 has a theater altered handle i have a japanese type 30 bayonet that looks like it was never used still has all the bluing on it and many more i hope to share. thanks again

For the past couple of years, I have only been buying razors, quite a few razors actually, and I have had no problem having these delivered in the mail. As I am now an impoverished pensioner I can't afford to collect knives and razors so I hadn't kept up with our new knife purchasing laws I had been aware that the legislation was changing of course but had let it slip from my mind.
This Summer I hope to be able to spend a good deal of time whittling in my shed or in the garden. My…Continue

A shortish blog on sharpening straight razors. It will be short because I know little enough , though I have learned enough to be able to get the job done . Maybe I can return to this in future when I have more information but for the present it will be brief .
1 . If you want to learn to shave using a straight razor the most effective way is to buy a new razor from a dealer who is known for sharpening their razors before sending them out . Buy a strop at the same time , not a…Continue

I feel that I have to admit that I am becoming a collector , this may sound strange as I am writing this on i Knife Collector and this is ...well the place for collectors .
I have never really collected anything before , in the past I have always had a pocket knife and sometimes two or maybe three but never anymore than that. I have had knives since I was eight or nine , something like that anyway and I can hardly remember a time when I didn't look in shop windows at knives . When I…Continue

I like a great looking knife , I really do .
Just as with most people a fancy set of handle scales or a little damascus really get's my attention . I have one or two knives that are very attractive and I wouldn't part with them for any reason , but I pick up and carry the same few knives all the time . With the greatest respect to the talented guys who have designed my users they do have one thing in common , they are Plain !
I never really thought of this until I started…Continue
