Addictive knife buying isn't guided by logic.

Its probably my age that makes people think I am an adult.

Tolerance is within a standard.

may call that bribery. We do not apologize."

You're welcome! It's fairly new as a knife handle material, but I'd like to see it be more widespread. I find it pretty ideal for a utilitarian handle.



I want to emphasize that the things I like most are its feel and light weight, with the extra toughness and lower toxicity as nice secondary benefits, although the latter two properties are what drew my interest in the first place.



Its biggest disadvantage that I see is the limited number of colors. So far, knife handle material is a tiny fraction of their sales for this material. If it picks up some more, maybe we'll see a wider range.

As an aside:



I'm always momentarily surprised to see you in your videos.



"Stormcrow" makes me think "Birdlike"—i.e. Fine Boned, Tall and Skinny—with Chiseled Hawkish Facial Features…



But of course, one's handle needn't have any correlation with one's physical appearance.



Several years ago, one of the resident posters with a tongue-twister of a handle used a photo of his girlfriend for an Avatar. I though for some time that the poster was a young lady…



I do like your knives and your videos are informative.

Ever heard of the elephant bird? <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />



"Stormcrow" was actually originally a generic, disposable name from The Lord of the Rings that I adopted back when I first started using the Interwebz as a teenager, when I would frantically peruse blacksmithing sites as fast as I could because the dialup modem was making a long distance call. The news was rife with warnings about the dangers of chatrooms, so I was being cautious. It turned out to be unnecessary, but it just stuck with me. I put my name, James Helm, in my signature line now, but am still under some variation of Stormcrow on almost all the forums that I hang out on.
