  • My name is Ben and I am a knifeaholic...

    Well, I collect knives. I bought my first knife when I was 7 and we were living on tiny sand dune island off the coast of Holland. Boys need a knife out there. Latest purchases: Grohmann #3 Boat knife, Enzo Trapper S30V Scandi, Mora Companion F... and many more to follow. Basically I am looking for the perfect knife. I need help. That's why I am here! Greetings, Ben.

    Welcome, Ben. You won't get any help here, I don't think anybody has found their perfect knife.

      Inside every old man is a young man wondering what the hell happened.

        Welcome to the forum Ben.
        Unfortunately, the only help you'll get around here - is helping you keep your wallet empty!

        PS. Let us know when you've found your perfect knife? I'm still looking for mine, but then it's only been half a lifetime...

          Welcome to the forum.

          The perfect knife only lasts as long as it takes to find the next perfect knife.

            The plural of knife is knives.
            One knife.
            Two knives.
            The plural possessive is knives'.

              The perfect knife is all of them, at the moment I can't get up the courage to sell any of mine I have made.
              Even though some people have enquired about some. Have about a dozen almost finished, just need handles.

                  Hi Ben

                  Welcome to the Forum!!

                  Nice to have a Netherlander with us.

                  I am sorry but I do not know what a Knifeaholic is! My wife says that I am one, but I know that I can stop any time. And I will, once my collection is complete.

                  There is always room for one more knife.

                    G'day Ben we might have to change the name of the forum to KAA( Knife Addicts Anonymous) and start a 7 step programs to help all the poor Addicts who can't help themselves.
                    I think the first step is 1. Sell your knives to me.
                    Will worry about other steps after you've all completed the 1st one.

                      No no no... First step is to GIVE your knives away, for you need to free yourself from the addiction . I will hold them for you but welcome...
