Knife Collecting, Knife Talk and the World Wide Web

In our recent post about knife forums- Knife Talk is Alive and Well – we pointed to the tremendous activity level of Knife Talk on the World Wide Web. It is interesting to see the sheer number of posts and replies posted on each knife forum.

You probably know CNJ started a Best Knife Forum of the Web poll that is running for the month of November. There is no doubt Knife Forums are the most popular knife “place” to go on the web.

Couple of interesting observations since we started the friendly contest. As of today, there have been almost 2000 over 3250 (11/11/08) 4500 (11/13/08 8:00 AM) 5664 (11/13/08 7:00 PM) site visits from the buzz at the various participating forums.  

forum de tous les couteaux

NeoCZen.org- Le petit affuté: forum de tous les couteaux

Something else happened too. We know the Web is worldwide and a French Knife Forum has joined in and started pounding the “Other” category. I felt it was only fair to add them to the list. Their name is NeoCZen.

Unfortunately, I only speak Southern, so you should have seen me trying to sign up as a member of their forum to let them know they were added to the list.

Google has Google Translator. I had to translate the instructions and “buttons” sentence by sentence. Then once I finally got registered I found the thread and posted “Votre forum a maintenant été ajouté à la liste. Mes excuses. Désolé pour ce désagrément, mais venir voter à nouveau, si vous le souhaitez. Bonne chance”

You know how funny it is to hear stories about words being translated and how they can have totally different meanings than are intended, well, hopefully I didn’t say something like- I like to eat dog or something stupid like that.
