I have been lurking about for several months. At long last, AAPK and I have decided to make our relationship legal.
I've lived in the Hartford area for close to 35 years. Nearly a year ago, I decided I wanted to learn enough about knives so I could better understand the motley collection of pocket knives (half of them junk) I had accumulated over the years. None of my acquaintances knows or cares anything about knives, so I turned to the Internet and soon discovered AAPK.
AAPK's discussions and its reference materials have been extremely helpful and very interesting. Friendly too. Many thanks to the members and administrators.
I'm nowhere near being a collector (yet?), but I have
gotten much better at understanding and appreciating a well-made knife, which was my original goal.
Best to all,
