Today we continue with shows you guys voted for with the number two winner for August on knives. I will be upfront while I love knives of all types I am not a tech geek when it comes to them. I don’t get into every spec, the intricacies of different steels, choosing one over the other due to it being half an ounce lighter, etc.
On some levels I have thanks to Patrick at MT Knives, become a knife snob on some levels. Small imperfections that I used to ignore now bother me. What I used to call sharp I now call an “okay edge” and what I used to consider “okay” I now call dull.
Yet in the end I realize knives are like anything, you get what you pay for and it is all about the job you want done with it and how much you plan to rely on it. There are junk knives that are 2 bucks a piece but it doesn’t hurt to have em in a tackle box or map pocket as a back up. There are great knives that cost 20-100 dollars that do a fine job for what they are. True high end equipment that is also high performance for say 100-800 dollars and then there are piece of art, one puts in a case and collects above that price point.
Today we will focus mostly in the realm of the 20-200 dollar range as that fits well with most budgets and need. People who spend 500 dollars and up on a knife generally know why they are doing so and have their own reasons be they technical or collector driven.
