Welcome to 'The Cutting Edge'...
« on: February 14, 2009, 09:46:31 AM »
Welcome to 'The Cutting Edge' - the Knife Forum of CAS City.

The idea here is to talk about the knives and razors of the 'real' Old West - as opposed to the 'reel' Old West.

That topic covers a wide-ranging field of Bowies, Arkansas Toothpicks, Indian Dags, Trade Knives, Straight Razors, Pocketknives, Tomahawks and the their methods of carry.

Believe me, it's a wide-ranging field...

Articles on knife-making itself, as well as those dealing with knife restoration are encouraged, as are the showing off of new finds and old, so long as they fall into the pre-1899 time frame as far as design goes - the same goes for scabbards.

What's not encouraged are modern knives and fantasy knives - there are other forums that deal with those, and they should be visited instead.

So, if you've got something of interest, we'll talk about it, and if you have information to share, we'll do that gladly - just be certain to provide references when you can, so as to help folks and better their understanding of the era.

Remember to be respectful and helpful to all, since everyone started somewhere and appreciated whatever help they were offered by more knowledgeable folks.
