So, this is a bit of a pet peeve, but I promise, I’ll try REAL hard not to rant. I love knives. Have every since I was a kid. I watch YouTube videos all the time, trying to keep up with the latest knives, see which ones are good, and which ones to avoid. I’ve been seeing more and more of these “destruction tests.” Now, some of them are done well: they push the knives just a bit past their designed limit, and it gives you a good idea of how reliable the knife will be, should you find youself in a pinch, and need to rely solely on your blade to save your butt. HOWEVER: I’m seeing a disturbing trend. People are taking (a Mora, let’s say) and using a baseball bat to pound it through a dense log that is almost as wide as the blade is long. They pound and pound and pound, until the blade eventually comes loose from the handle, or breaks, etc. Now, to me, this is just silly. There are so many other options, even in a survival situation, where you could push your knife a bit, but not to the point it will fail, and still stay alive/get the job done. But more and more people seem to be yelling “That knife is cheap! It failed! I tried to hammer it through a cinder block and it broke! Don’t buy it!” Is it just me, or are an increasing number of people starting to expect WAAAAYYYY too much out of their knives? I understand to a point. We all want a knife that is durable, and can take a bit of punishment. But, it seems to be getting out of hand. Any thoughts?
