    That's pretty neat. And a pretty good recommendation! I've got the cheese knife on order - it should be here today. And I ordered "the kid" a starter set for Christmas.

    when sharping a filet knife, i filleted, a piece of my little little finger., the skin has grown back, least i point it to you, ya wouldnt notice. the feeling came back also, sometime, much later. on the same hand, i poked, the tip of a fillet knife, under my thumb, in the palm area. bout a i/2 inch, the blood was squirting, from my palm, up in the air. i just put pressure on the cut, an it quit after a while.
    a dull knife, will cut ya twice as much, as a sharp one.
    an, on the side, dont let me sharpen your knives, least ya like blood on the floor, an the walls, maybe the ceiling. :):D:D

    Funny you should mention that last part. My husband was sharpening our hunting knives this past weekend & one started to fall. Not thinking he grabbed it by the blade as it was going down.... Yep. It was one he'd already mostly sharpened. Had a helluva blood trail leading from the living room to the bathroom where I was able to get him patched back up!

    Never underestimate the power of plastic, to stop a blood flow., works better than most things. cigarette, plastic, on, the pack, or, the the box, works better, than any cotton, or material, you can get. its anti-absorbent.
    somethings can encourage blood flow. some female products, for example. i know its morbid, to think this way., but, i like to cover the bases. i might write a script for a movie someday. as if.
    Heavy Flow, least 5 liter's., for the Vic.

    Slapped a non-stick teflon pad on it, wrapped it up with electrical tape & went on! Worked like a charm! Pretty much the same thing we did when I took my fingertip off - just "going on" wasn't an option at that point because I was in too much pain. I swear that finger felt every movement of my body until those nerve endings settled down, it even hurt to breath!!!

    Don’t discount woman’s feminine products. I have filled more then one bullet hole with a tampon. Works great.

    ha ha, well;
    i like jokes, one liners are the best. when ya get a chance, better go for it.
    When i worked HVAC., sometimes, i had to be a helper for the plumbers. a small family company, though 4 generations.
    Once, we, the plumbers, had to unclog a drain, in St. Matthews. thats when i learned of sewer mice.
    for those that dont know, a length, of, maybe absorbent cotton, with a string attached. got 75 out. the lady at the house said, "we had a party last week". i said "musta been some bitching party".
    wasnt even near moon sign. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    i did keep a strait face, till two driveways down the road. for i lost it.

I currently have newer victorinox,, wusthof, and rada knives but looking to pickup some quality older carbon steel as well.

    Victorinox are good knives. Im a fan of old hickory for carbon steel. I find alot at yard/rummage sales. Usually dirt cheap. Just have to dig thru some junk sometimes

    Got several old hickory. Just can’t put them in dishwasher. That good high carbon metal will rust.
