- What does full-tang mean?

- What is an ulu knife?
This type of all-purpose knife originally came from the Eskimos, who used it for everything from skinning animals to building an igloo. The knife has a wide, curved blade with a handle which runs parallel to the blade. The ulu is used with a back and forth rocking motion, making it great for use in the kitchen to chop and cut meats and vegetables.
- Where did the butterfly knife come from?
Also known as a balisong, the butterfly knife got its start in the Philippines as a self-defense and utility pocket knife. It gained popularity in the United States when soldiers returned from the Philippines after W.W.II.
- Why do I need a knife sharpener?
A knife will serve you well for many years if you keep it properly sharpened. Also, a blunt or dull knife requires more pressure to use, which opens the door to it slipping and causing injury. What you want is a sharpener system that offers a couple of different grit options. The grit is the size of the particles in the stone, which affects the finish on your blade – a finer grit giving you a finer finish.
- What does “feed your blade” mean?
It means that to maintain your knife, you should coat it with a clear, non-organic oil to prevent moisture from reaching the blade, when storing. A light oil like gun oil works perfectly but it should be changed regularly by wiping the blade clean with a soft cloth until dry and applying more.
