Goal of the Wicked Edge Wiki

My goal for the Wiki is simple - to create a place where our community can build a resource that is a rich source of information on everything knife, and giving some of our best conversations a home there is a really good fit. I eventually want to have a big knife and sharpening glossary, a steel database and as many articles geared toward sharpening as we can manage.

Quote from Clay, Owner of the Wicked Edge


With the above in mind, the guidelines for posting to the Wiki are simple:

  -  No Commercial Posts.
  -  Don't post copyrighted material without permission.
  -  Page title links should be a consistent format:  Wicked_Edge_WIki_ followed by a descriptive title of the page.
      Example:  Wicked_Edge_Wiki_Testing_for_Sharpness
      -  If you want a page created, and need help, or have an idea for a page, send a Message to cbwx34 in the forum.
  -  Do not erase another contributor's work.  If you don't agree with someone, hash it out somewhere else, come to a conclusion, 
      then post the result.  (The Wiki is not a forum, or a place to have a conversation.)
  -  Don't just post a link to something, include a description of what it is.


Creating a Section on a Page

Perhaps the easiest way to add content to the Wiki, is to create your own section on a page. To do this:

-  Click on "Edit" at the top of the page.
-  Notice the box that opens.  At the top are a few blue buttons.
-  Position the cursor where you want your section to start.
- Click the "Level 2 Headline" button (it has an A in it.)
- A line with "Headline text" highlighted in blue appears
- Begin typing a Title for your section "Headline text" will be replaced
- After typing a title move your cursor below the line (don't hit enter) and begin typing your text

If you get lost, send a PM to me! cbwx34 in the forum

Adding a Photograph or File

To add a photo or file to a page, you first need to upload the file to the Wiki. In the left column, click on "Upload File" and follow the prompts.

Once that is done, here are the instructions for adding a photo or file to a page:
