Kindly recommend a good knife forum

It's been said that gun guys are also knife guys. I suspect that most of us who are into guns and hunting, also carry a knife. I started carrying a knife to school when no one cared. Now you can't even draw a picture of one. ....

I may get shot down but could one of you gentle-persons recommend a good knife forum?

Thanks and;
Be Safe !!!

I like www.bladeforums.com

Generally pretty good folks and there is a lot of knowledge floating around too.
I've found that knives, while slightly cheaper in some cases, are just as addictive as guns.

I don't frequent any knife forums, but do have an ever growing collection of knives. I like buying new knives almost as much as buying new guns, almost....

I don't belong to a knife forum but there are many-many. Some Googling will find them for you. You might start with http://www.knifemaking.com/Default.asp
for links to forums.

I agree bladeforums is probably the best. You might also checkout knifeforum which isn’t really as good, but does cover certain brands in more detail. Also, many manufactures like Spyderco and Benchmade maintain their own forums. If you’re into Swiss Army knives SAKWIKI is a good resource although it’s not really a forum.

Been a member of bladeforum since '99, under a different user name. A different knifeforum site in years passed, in the days of Earl Stewart and MadDog Kevin McClung, was also good. It's long gone. Some specific knife brands have their own forum, e.g. Benchmade and Microtech (microholics).

While Bladeforums is probably the best bet, also check out Jerzeedevil.com. Lots of manufacturer activity on JD from companies you don't hear from much on BF.
