1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Lol. I don't use the Lansky on our kitchen knives they are only cheap. I just run them up a down a steel. After that, they are good for one carve or chop before the edge has gone again! However....? My son will use nothing else but an Opinel if he has a steak. He's 20yrs old now, and doesn't know any different. It used to make me and his mother laugh when his friends would come round for dinner or a bbq etc....the look on their faces when my boy would open an Opinel at the table was hilarious. Hed look at them and ask....."what's up..?, why are you staring at me?" Its only what I've bought him up with. Not a bad thing though at all. My boy knows how handy....but also how dangerous knives can be in the wrong hands. I'll post you a pic mate
    The top one is the No12....my sons dinner knife. It has never left the house.
    The middle one is my beloved No8. The blade length is within the legal limit, but because of the twist lock ferrel it makes it illegal to carry
    The last one is my wifes No6, it wasn't long after we met nearly 30 yrs ago that introduced her to an Opinel. Like my son.....she is lost without it. Hers isn't the original one i first got her, she lost it when we went pike fishing once. All the best mate.

    Each to their own n all that.....
    But I can't see why anyone would want to spend an absolute fortune on device that sharpens a blade? If I earnt my living from sharpening knives, maybe I would. But you can't go wrong with a Lansky. You don't even need the top drawer kit. The basic Lansky kit will set you back £40 or less if you get a deal. Great bit of kit. Puts an unbelievable edge to any blade. Personally I prefer carbon steel. I don't mind the patina at all. The Lansky will put an edge on carbon steel that you can shave with. Guaranteed. 20190723_193103.jpg

    With respect mate.....but if it didn't work for you, you must have been doing something wrong, surely?
    I mastered how to use it within 30 mins of unboxing it. That was without the stand. I couldn't believe how good it was. I thought it couldn't get better, but it did! I bought the stand after a week or two. Awesome bit of kit! If you've still got it mate.....?
    Dig it out, and I can talk you through it, if you want? Go steady mate.

    If anyone has one in the back of the cupboard I will give it a nice home.

    I have multiple knives including 5 opinels all of which usually get used weekly if not sooner.

    2 no12 for work, (stainless for hygiene reasons working on dairy parlours)
    1 no7 stainless in the work bag in case.
    And a no7 and 8 carbon steel for round the house.

    They do take abuse and such a handy tool. I have just recently bought a no13 for a giggle as a kitchen knife though.
    It's amazing also.

    I used to love my buck knives and they are still brilliant for heavy work but dont have the finesse of the opinel.

  8. That's a bit cruel isn't it why not teach her how to cook, then you get a decent meal that you didn't have to stand around cooking yourself. I'd say win win
     
  9. You've either got really small hands or that is a really large knife (machete or sword) that things huge
