Post Knife Publications, or, "I don't come up with all this stuff on my own."

Knife World - a great little monthly newsletter/magazine on newsprint that isn't as slick and commercial as the bigger magazines. The articles range from homey to scholarly. They also publish a great range of books on knives and knife collecting. The small staff can be found at hammer-ins and shows and events and are very accessible.

Blade Magazine - one of the "big 3" knife magazines and the folks that put on the Blade Show in Atlanta and Blade Show West in Oregon every year. Lots of slick articles and pictures with tons of ads. They do a pretty good job of being objective. Their focus has traditionally been more commercial knives than custom or "tactical", but they branch across all those fields. Kim Breed, one of our group buy makers, writes a monthly T&E article for them.

Knives Illustrated - another of the "big 3" knife magazines which has traditionally focused on custom knives. Excellent maker articles and shop "tours".

Tactical Knives
- the last of the "big 3" knife magazines, their focus is part of their name. The editor has been at the helm for longer than any of the other big 3 knife magazines. Good articles on knives and their use in "non-recreational" situations. Member Anthony Lombardo has written some T&E articles for them. Closed 2014

Blade Trade
- more of a knife industry magazine, but a great place to get a different perspective on the knife "business".

"The Newsletter" - the switchblade fans' publication. Just the thing for folks that like knives with recoil.

There are various club newsletters published on a monthly, bimonthly and quarterly basis, but those go to members. I do encourage everyone to join at least one club for knife enthusiasts. You meet some amazing people with vast stores of institutional knowledge locked in their minds and they're almost always eager to share it.

TheHighRoad exists to provide a higher grade of discussion than is found on some other gun forums so antis and undecideds can see that gun owners and RKBA advocates are not the reckless misanthropes they tell everyone we are. Personal attacks, group stereotyping, macho chest-thumping, and partisan hackery are low road and hurt all of us.
