    Default a Kitchen Knife?!

    Iím really tired of people thinking my Micarta woody is a kitchen knife!!

    "why did you bring a kitchen knife?" they ask. "its not a freakin' kitchen knife!!" i tell them.



    sorry, just had to vent

    you could probably buy a flat-pack kitchen with the proceeds if you sold it

    Bless 'em, for they know not what they do. Next time someone asks "the question" just smile and ask them if they think you look like a **** chef !
    If it's not sharp, it's just a piece of metal.

    what really gets me i the outline isn't even like a kitchen knife. I could forgive people when it comes to the svord knives I guess.

    Wellllll, actually......there's a set of Solingen bladed kitchen knives from Lidl that look awfully like the micarta woodlore and the FK1 *We* know the difference, but......
    You could change the pins for mosaics I suppose
    Nice knife though

    Cheers,

    I would've thought that's a good thing - at least people aren't reacting by thinking it looks tactical and designed for stabbing people (Like the comments the UKPK seems to be receiving)

    I'm inclined to agree with Marts here, I'd rather people looked on my knife as a tool of some description (even if it is the wrong description) rather than as a weapon.

    true, i agree there. but most of the comments come from my scouts, i thought i educated them on the different types of knives.

    maybe one day i should bring a kitchen knife, see what they say.

    I get the opposite!

    The two knives I use most in the kitchen are both Mora and I certainly get some funny looks from people.

    Let's see... Boy scouts, who probably have an idea as to how much you paid for that knife... Calling it a kitchen knife... Which annoys you...

    Default hmm...

    Let's face it, it does look like a kitchen knife!! That's the #1 reason I didn't buy one!

    What is the difference really?? At the end of the day as long as it's shap and holds an edge? The only other difference is the longevity of the knife, isn't it??

    I find the cost of these things almost inexplicable...seems like they are more a status symbol!!

    Someone please explain...

    Never mind Jayson, I used to have a Bearded Collie and everyone used to say "what a nice dulux dog". The dulux dog is an Old English Sheepdog incase you did not know. That would wind me up.

    You should explain to them calmly that it is not a kitchen knife.

    That it is in fact a bonefide "Kitchen Chisel" , that it was designed by RM and made by Wilkinson Sword and that if they wish to get one it will cost around £400 pounds on e-bay, or they could always buy it now for the same price plus a couple of hundred pounds for P+P once you have a letter from thier parents saying that it will be OK for them to have it.

    That is, "if" they have the money in thier piggy banks

    Default nope...

    "Let's see... Boy scouts, who probably have an idea as to how much you paid for that knife... Calling it a kitchen knife... Which annoys you..."

    i don't think they have any idea and their questions are genuine.

    the scouts are the hardest to convince thatís its not a kitchen knife. i can live with them thinking thatís all it is but i can't stand it when they try to pinch it from the sheath when its on my belt. its meagerly disrespectful. one time, one of them got away with it and when i turned around he was standing behind me. he must have thought i was going to chase after him because he dropped the knife (in the gravel!!) and ran off. took me days to sharpen the dings out of it.

    That knife will never be considered a kitchen knife if the government have its way because all kitchen knives will be sold with rounded blades and not points.

    Why not re-handle it? I just did one for a friend, it was fun

    I've got a twelve year old Beardy/ Old English cross. Standing there trying to explain that to people usually gets easier by just agreeing it's a 'dulux dog'

    Sooooo, maybe it'd be easier to say it's just a 'kitchen knife'?

    I bet it was the Beardy who made the mistake, all that hair over their eyes, they don't see too well, probably thought it was another Beardy. Mine ran full pelt straight into me once, so I tied back his hair and everyone thought he was a girl.
    Funny how these threads digress.................Jon

    Jayson,

    I've got one of those kitchen knives as well mate, I like it so don't really care what other people call it. As long as you like it and it does what you want it to do who cares what others think.

    you want to try using a svord drop point. it looks far more like a kitchen knife than the woody ever will
    If the thought of something makes me giggle for longer than 15 seconds, I am to assume that I am not allowed to do it.
