Add a knife section?

What about adding a knife section? I think it would be a good addition to TFL, as many people EDC knives along with there firearms. Just a thought...

Yes, I suppose that would be nice but the more Sub-Catagories you create, the least likely that folks can find them and use them. A classic example is the M/L Garage Sale Sub. Cat. All too often folks don't even know it's there, let alone use it. I vote YES but not a big deal either way. ...



Be Safe !!!

Gear and Accessories seems a good enough place for discussion about blades.

There are many-many knife related forums already.
I don't believe adding one here would benefit anything.

What Rifleman1776 said.

This is a Firearms board.

That also provides a great service to Hunters, Reloaders and related accesseries, including edged weapons. ....

Most people that use firearms also use knives.

There's not much point in telling us what forums we do have here at TFL in an attempt to rationalize a reason for adding an edged weapons forum. It won't work.

As Rifleman1776 said, there are lots of knife BB's out in the hinterwebs. One of the best is BladeForums.com.

A firearms forum that does have an edged weapons forum is TheHighroad.org. Many of the members here are members there as well.

No - it isn't. That forum is for firearms gear and accessories. While topics such as hunting knives probably wouldn't be deleted, other categories of knives would be OT. Hunting knives and their usage is also pretty much on topic in The Hunt Forum.

Not sure if that was serious or a joke, probably the latter. But, let me add that most people that use firearms also use [insert any commonly used noun here]. So should we also add a forum for [commonly used noun] here at TFL?
back atcha!

Further discussion is pointless - so this one's closed.
