    In all things light hearted and family friendly of course, I've decided to make this thread. It can be anything you want to "confess".

    I'm going to confess that:
    I've never seen Star Wars, The Hunger Games, The God Father or Good Fellows.
    I don't know the differences between one steel from another.
    Also, I think some SAK knives are ugly and that's why I never collected them until recently when my husband helped me to understand their purpose and functionality.

    Anyone else have something to say?

    My turn I guess :
    - I don't use a knife that often
    - I prefer the M4 steel on my Gayle Bradley over the CRK S35VN
    - I've never seriously carried a SAK (=everyday)
    - Not much of a confession but I get bored of things very very quickly, and EDC gear is no exception

    my kitchen knives are in terrible shape. they date back to before i got into knives and have thus been dropped, dishwashered, and otherwise abused, but i can put a decent enough edge to chop veggies on them so i don't bother to replace them.

    i don;t like cleaning house. even though my apartment is nice and small so it should only take 20 minutes or so, I just dislike cleaning chemicals and implements to the point where i hardly ever do it.

    i am slightly afraid of my EDCF Manix 2xl because the scales are so smooth and shiny that it is hard to keep a good grip when opening the knife.

    I secretly think that the SIG classic pistols actually look better than the 1911.
    I also forgot to clean mine... but it doesn't need it, and shouldn't for another few thousand rounds. :p

    I can't sharpen a knife to save my life. :( It doesn't matter what system I use, I can get a knife "working" sharp but any kind of really good
    edge is beyond me.

    I've got turned around twice in the woods.

    The first time I was just a child and I couldn't find my way back to the house, sat out in the woods all night. When the sun started to rise I was less then a hundred yards from the house.

    The second time I was 18 and it was foggy and I got turned around in an area I had never been in before. I just stopped and waited for the fog to clear turned out I was only a short distance off of where I thought I was, but for me it was still a little unnerving.

    Mom, in grade three it was me who started the fire in the woods behind the house.

    I was burning a letter from school and things got a little out of control...

    EDC heresy specific. This might get me kicked off the forum. :)

    I don't like SAK's.
    I honestly don't think most people need anything but a small bladed simple knife in their pocket for day to day usage. If that. (runs for cover)
    I wish the knife on my Skeletool was a metal file.
    I prefer serrated blades.
    250-350 lumens is as much as you need for anything but specialist usage.
    I can't work out a non dorky way to carry a pen other than in trouser pockets (not practical), shirt (dorky) or a sheath (super dorky). A jacket seems the only answer but it's 90 degrees out there today...
    I hate smartphones with a passion.
    Pocket handkerchiefs are yeuch.
    I got into EDC to tidy up my pockets and reduce my carry. This forum is responsible for the opposite happening and I blame you all. :p

    I don't need a fixed blade(still want one). I almost never use my flashlight.

    I use knives in the kitchen to cook and eat. At work I tend to reach for a Stanley knife or shears. The one in my pocket, hardly ever, and then usually for the nail file or bottle opener.

    To confess my sins would take up too much space on this forum.
