When looking at pictures that people have taken of their custom knives, it absolutely drives me crazy to see a beautiful knife purposely set down on cement, concrete, or rocks just for the purpose of taking a picture. Don't you know it will scratch the steel? Don't you know it will put dings in the handle? I suppose some rocks could make for a natural, pretty background for a photo, but cement or concrete? Really? What are you thinking? And that doubly for those of you who are taking pictures of your custom knife to sell it here! It really makes me cringe. It's one thing if it's a post-apocolyptic piece, a few extra scratches and dings will only add more character. Or if it's your beater or well worn user, or even soon-to-be well worn user, even if it is custom. No problem. Even @Keyser Söze batoning his Turley with a brick doesn't bother me. But I start twitching when I see a picture of a safe queen laid on somebody's concrete or gravel driveway. I gotta ask why?!?! Edit: made some text bold. I think most people are missing the point. I'm definitely not saying you shouldn't use a custom knife. I have several custom knives and ALL of them are users.
