New member, long time knife/tool freak.
« on: December 14, 2012, 11:40:39 PM »
Hello,

My knife addiction started when my Grandfather gave me my first one at 11 y.o.
He never was without one, and was/is my biggest hero. He passed on many years ago, but my knife... Whatever knife reminds me of him every day. 

I have recently been bitten by the Alox bug and love the Swiss tool fourm here.

Welcome to the forum,

My first knife was also gifted to me by my grandfather. I sadly lost it long time ago.  :'(

I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here. :salute:

Thanks for the warm welcome!
I too lost that first knife long ago.
Daily carry today rotates form a Alox cadet, Spiderco Native and if working around the house a Leatherman ST. Nothing fancy, but waiting on a custom Alox from one of the mod guys here. Always wanted a custom and can't wait.
