Knife School

From paper cuts to tourniquets, metallurgy to bushido, Nothing But Knives Knife School will set you on the path to ultimate knife wisdom.

This is a place to learn the history, techniques, and terminology related to knives and knife activities.

If you’re curious about how to sharpen a knife or what the heck S30V steel is, this might be the place to look. Come learn about knife construction and terminology so you can tell knife snobs to shut up when they tell you to put bronze washers in your folder to make the action “better”.

This is also a place for philosophy and life advice full of (mostly drunk) opinions on carrying knives in city limits, or everyone’s obsession with the word “tactical”. Some of the things we say are probably wrong, so feel free to come in and disagree with us.
