I Know This Is A Firearms Resource Site, But...

...why no sub forum for knives? Knives and firearms go hand in hand it seems to me. And, yes, I know there are forums devoted solely to knives, but I am more of a gun guy that carries a knife than the other way around, so, I like to discuss with people of like minds.

And, I did look at this,

http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=184586

but it seems that was more related to a sub forum just to BS in.

Anyway, not a huge deal, just asking since I bought a new knife tonight and am itching to tell someone.

I suppose I could be flippant and just say, "Knives are not Guns."

We've long debated the question of a subforum for .22 cal. The end result has always been, no. It would ultimately detract from the overall theme of TFL. We are a resource board. For all firearms. We are not going to limit any particular forum to a specific caliber. Now transpose that answer to knives.... I think you will get the answer.

By the way, thanks for being so polite about your question. It's a refreshing change in today’s fear inspired atmosphere.

And, I am proud that the knives are not included on this forum.

In my opinion, the 2 have nothing in common...as such, I have never understood why people include knives in their gun pictures. I would like to see your gun, but I have no interest in your knife.

Better than photographing your guns with your watch, though. That's the one I don't get.

Anyway, thanks for the answer.

Keep in mind we do have a Gear & Accessories forum. Knives can be discussed if it's relative to a firearm or hunting.

"To what mil-surp does this bayonet belong?", etc. is acceptable.
