Ricardo Moraes-Pinto says:

Good preentation. In the future, try not to forget the good old slip joints and blade shapes like the bowie clip. Congrats.

Dylan Wall says:

Even knowing what I know now, and with all of the knives that I’ve bought over the years, I still believe that the Kershaw Skyline is an amazing first knife. It’s the first decent knife I remember saving up for. Awesome blade and g10 scales. Plus it’s a manual flipper which already makes it better than most of the knives that Kershaw produces. I wish I never gave it away.

High Plains Drifter says:

How can anyone suggest anything other than a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife for a first time knife?!? They are really good quality for the price, they’re useful, and they will do 90% of the knife related tasks that Joe Average needs to get done. Gotta love the elitists on here who say to only get something that costs $100 or more. IMHO, there is no better starter knife than a Victorinox. Case XX pocket knives are also a great choice, although I would get a Case after the Victorinox. You can get really pretty Case knives, and they’ll be more expensive. I have close to 30 knives, ranging in price from $22 to over $300. I’ve got quite a few of the top brands, including multiple Spydercos and Benchmades, and I still love the classic Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. It brings back memories of being a kid like no other knife can.

Ice Man says:

Blade HQ needs to train their staff on customer service, coz the way they deliver their speech is like they’re explaining to kids…
