Hi people

Benn awhile since I was last on. Hope everyone is well.

Since Wicked Edge is not in the article they sure are losing their edge.

www.wired.com/reviews/2013/03/knife-sharpeners-gallery/

P.S. Sorry Mods wrong place can you please move to the off topic section.
Thx
Monk

Wow... what a terrible article. He got so much wrong, it's easy to see that he didn't really try at least some of the sharpeners. Maybe a good thing the WE wasn't included. :)

Scares me when I read stuff like this... makes me realize how much BS I'm probably reading on other stuff.

Yeah, it's a terrible article.

I wanted to leave a comment, too. But commenting is probably for regulars only. The WEPS gets mentioned twice already in the comments.

But the first comment (from a totally different corner) is spot-on: "Another review from the dissociative identity disorder department."

About 80%+ is junk. I think I have intimated that a few times in the past. When just about anyone can make a video for youtube or publish a blog, it is not surprising. Of course there are a few gems out there, it just takes lots longer to find them lately... hidden among the junk as they are!

Sadly just about all industries suffer from this. I used to think that my field was one of the worst when it comes to misinformation and downright awful publications, but I've realized in the past few years almost everywhere has its (un)fair share of tripe.

I guess it's not surprising when print mags became nothing but advertisements that internet publications would follow suit in short order. We'll just have to spread our own good information and bookmark those doing the same.
