Hey guys,

I'm really happy to finally announce our new Knife Database! You can find it with preceding link or under the resources tab. Here I hope you'll all contribute your knives, adding in as much as you know about them and the recommended settings for sharpening them. I'll get started adding some today. Eventually, I hope we'll have a very comprehensive database that we can all use as a resource. It is searchable and sortable by any of the category headings so you can browse by manufacturer, steel type etc... I'm looking forward to everyone's contributions.

I should add that we built this database on the recommendation of forum members. Many thanks to all of you that are kind enough to share your suggestions!

Thanks! This should become very useful for quickly and easily determining how to set up a knife in the vise. I already took a look at the entries in the database so far and to me they look quite accurate.

I think it is a very useful addition that's going to help a lot of people.

And now let's start filling it! :cheer:

How about a spot for a picture for reference and comparison. Not of the edge but the entire knife.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
Jesus Christ and The American G.I.
One died for your soul, the other for your Freedom.

Thanks for adding your knife and any you add in the future! Once you add them, I get an email to approve them and I log on and click okay before they show up. Same thing with edits. It's an easy way to limit spam and catch errors.

This is a good idea, thank you. I've passed it along to our webmaster and hopefully we'll be able to implement it.
