Hey guys! You might have noticed there was a new name at the top of the Endura review. My name is Nate. I’m 19, almost 20 years old. I work in a grocery store, which allows me to use my knives to a fair degree. I wouldn’t say I hard-use my knives, but they do get a work out. I’ve only been addicted to knives for about a year and a half. I currently live in California, but am moving to Wyoming in two months to go to college there.
Make the jump for more, and a free photographic reminder of why not to screw around with a knife in your hand…
I have a couple more reviews coming up, starting with the SOG Flash I. Until then, I will share some advice I learned the hard way. Do not do stupid stuff with your knives! Sure, accidents will happen when you use knives, but they can be reduced by not doing stupid things.
I did this at work, with my Kershaw Skyline. I was messing around, cutting crap that I was holding in my hand. It was sliced open, holding on literally by a thread. It took me nearly a half hour to patch up. I still had a majority or the day to get through. Luckily I knew first aid; my coworkers were just standing around while I was patching myself up. This has been the only thing I’ve been disciplined for at this job, and I haven’t messed around with knives (at work) since then.
Editor: What can possibly be better than a good volunteer writer with a solid collection of knives to review? The same good writer with a lot of knives to review and an infinite supply of cardboard to test them on! Let’s give a warm welcome to Nathan, the newest addition to our writer’s bullpen.
