    Another thing. Do you have to own a R2000 knife to be a knife snob or if you appreciate a quality knife. I don't own such an expensive knife..............yet.

    'n Mes hoef nie duisende te kos nie, maar as jy met hom begin werk kan jy vinnig voel of dit kwaliteit is of nie! Dis maar soos enige gereedskap stuk, jy kan met goedkoop goed wegkom meeste van die tyd, maar as jy eers die verskil gevoel het om iets ordentlik te werk, wil jy nie meer die cheapies gebruik nie.

    Back in my cowboying days I made some knives out of used horseshoeing rasps with the help of a friend in TX. Now the wifey and myself use them quite religiously as EDC's... she loves it for her custom leather works & I cant live without it on my day-to-day work on the plaas.. wifey made me one of her custom knife holsters that dont steek you into your love handles when getting in & out your bakkie / office stoel.

    some phodies of the process:

    Look, one thing I will always say....a man NEVER has enough knives. We can argue on quality versus price, but on that there is no debate.

    I prefer the Inox Opinels. Price is still affordable, and it still looks pretty.
    It does take a bit more work to get sharp, but it holds it's edge so much better than the Carbone I had, and I never worry about rust.

    I keep this in my car, or as today, on my desk - sub-R300 CUM knife that is actually quite sharp and very sturdy. The best is I don't feel sorry for it so it gets used, cheaper to replace than my SAK.
    I see my "Kershaw" is actually a Puma, lovely knife.

    That looks just like my Puma Deerhunter, lovely knife.

    but a wood insert in handle.

    And I think the exact opposite

    If youre on a farm, or a contractor working on site, then sure, you need a knife.
    But for the majority of us who sit in front of a computer most of the day, it makes no sense.

    If knives are a hobby of yours (which it seems they are for 100% of the guys on this thread) then for sure, carry as many as you want. But dont tell me its for practical purposes in the city.

    Jy trap nou op tone hier, ek't ook dit gevra en was amper n softy ge-label omdat ek nie n mes in my broeksak het nie, maar slegs in my bakkie.

    klink my jy mag nie jou biltong laat kerf deur n slagter nie, jy vat die hele stuk, saam n appel, en eet dit met jou mes in die kar voor jy by die huis kom en jou kombuis laai mag oopmaak.
