There needs to be a warning on the CKTG home page that says something to the effect of "Enter at your own risk - May cause you to spend thousands of dollars!"

After being disgruntled with my dull knives and "pull through" carbide blade sharpeners I went on a knife sharpener search. Of coarse I came across CKTG, became mesmerized, and never saw the endless pit I was jumping into. I just wanted to sharpen my knives and now eight months later I have a half dozen stones along with several other toys, new knives and $1000 less in my pocket. But the thing is, I feel like I've just gotten started!

The most popular phrase from my wife now is "and why do you need that?" :evil:

Thanks a lot Mark! :roll:

660 posts later and a $1000 spent - that's 1.5 posts per dollar (1.5151... for the more obsessive among us :) )

Now what entertainment source can compete with that? And have your wife eating better cooking too :)

It is an endless journey ...

My kitchen drawers and magnetic racks and cabinets are stuffed full of knives and stones if it's any consolation....

Some teenage friend of mine from high school gave me some wise words several decades ago. "Don't smoke your profit".....

To update, don't cut your profit.

I agree as a person just getting into Knives I'm glad I have found the site! Now just need to pace my budget as there is so much I want!
