    Hiya all!

    Decided to finally join the fun after lurking for about 3 years. I've really loved knives and other sharps since I received a Vic classic in Geneva when I was 8 (now a keychain EDC), and used to EDC a large-ish folder in my teens and early twenties. When I started working I stopped that practice and the interest also waned. But then I was in the market for a camping knife 3 years ago, stumbled onto this forum and the obsession was rekindled.

    I bought a leatherman juice and a mora for that camping trip but have since formed the beginnings of a small knife and gear collection.

    Other interests include literature, photography and music (hipster alert; I dabble in film and vinyl); I read most sections but preferred threads are those relating knives (I'm really into fixies), photography, pens and notebooks and bags. Looking forward to showing my gear and chiming in!

    Sorry for the wall of text, I have a literary background and tend to get longwinded...

    TL;DR: Longwinded Dutch knife freak with hipsterish tendencies decided to de-lurk after 3 years

    Three years lurking? Clearly, you're not given to making snap decisions. But we're delighted you decided to come out of the shadows and officially participate.

    Thanks! I can be quite impulsive actually lol, I guess I've generally not been that interested in actively participating online, this is the first forum I joined in a very long time;)

    Hello from another Dutchie. Looking forward to seeing your collection. Being curios, are you still camping? If so, why not share some pictures of those outdoor activities? ;-)
