by  c.caudill on July 23rd, 2014

Knife snobs are those internet armchair survival warrior-wannabes who have a particular knife that they like and in their mind there is no one other knife in the world that compares to it.   I get a chuckle out of these folks because, well frankly, I can make an incredibly sharp and useful knife/tool out of rock.  So you see, …
