  • Welcome to the "Using knives" Section on Edgematters.co.uk.


    The purpose of this forum is to provide a space where the use of knives as tools in the furtherance of our other hobbies might be discussed in a focussed and sensible manner.


    This is the place to talk about everything from whittling knives to hunting knives all the way through to Mushroom knives and everything in between.


    Admin wish to make it abundantly clear that as the discussion of knives as weapons of offence or defence, or in the context of martial arts, is prohibited in the general forum and that the same prohibition holds here.


    Enjoy the section and we look forward to your contributions.

  • so many of my knives and those of my wife are used by her, and very occasionally by me (Mr Hack n Slash, apparently) in the garden.
    Pruning, trimming, grafting, obviously but also there s a place for digging between stones and using as a crowbar. (Farid custom)
    Khukuris and goloks get a run out too :)

    Knives? Are we mad? We should be talking politics and religion ..... or soap operas
