I think you would be better served posing your question in it's own thread in this forum along with pictures ---> viewforum.php?f=4

This is the thread that has instructions for posting pictures. ---> viewtopic.php?f=98&t=50258

I would love to watch this video, but don't know how to open it. Could you help this old poop, and tell me how to open it?

When the forum software was updated, the "youtube" feature changed how it handled links to videos (for the better). The task of going back through this thread and re-posting every video was so daunting that I just couldn't get up the umph to do it. Maybe I'll have a spurt of energy and redo them a few at a time. Until then, here's the one that's been asked about.

The making of a (French) Laguiole knife. This is the top notch FONTENILLE PATAUD brand. It's a good video and the manufacturing steps are very similar for any knife.

Here's a video first posted in another thread by Mitch Rapp. It's all about how Topps Knives (fixed blades) are made. About ten minutes long, I thought it was pretty interesting and also belonged here. Thanks Mitch.



If you have the time, the second video about Ernest Emerson is pretty good too. Also about ten minutes.



GEC factory tour showing the steps it takes to make a complete pocket knife. Part one is 19 minutes long.



Part two is 18 minutes long. I'm glad to see that in part two, they finally got some safety glasses on "Dwayne".



The final step, part three is nine minutes long.

Until all the links are changed over, you can copy the link between the square brackets "[ ]" so this link that you couldn't get open:
"[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keuRiJrNqGI[/youtube]": would then be"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keuRiJrNqGI". Notice that the square brackets containing the word "youtube" are removed. Then paste the altered link into the search bar at the top of whatever browser you use. Oh and you only copy/paste the link, don't copy the quotation marks.

That's probably as clear as mud for you. ::hmm::

Some of the more frequently asked questions here on AAPK concern cleaning of knives. "Should I clean my knife?" "How much should I clean my knife?" "How do I clean my knife?"

These or similar questions are frequently asked by new collectors. Here are links to some threads that address these questions. As you will see there are occassional differing opinions. Read these posts, and then decide what is right for your knife. Additional posts may also be found by using the AAPK search engine.

Ken how about copying this post, naming a new thread "knife cleaning" or some such and posting it in it's own thread in the Tips & Tricks forum. Won't hurt at all for it to be in two places. Just a suggestion. If you see some fault with that logic, feel free to fire away. Yeah, I could do it but it's your post.

Thanks Jerry. I did as you suggested. I had always thought of the "Tips and Tricks" forum as being guidance on how to navigate around the forum. I think this will be the first "Knife Tips" thread posted there. Breaking new ground, I guess. ::hmm::

BTW I learned something in the process. Simple copy and paste didn't re-create the URL, I had to re-insert the "htpps" and stuff that follows it to make the links work. And the "#" and numbers following it at the end links to a specific post within the thread. If you want to link the entire thread from its beginning you need to delete the # and all that follows it. You probably knew all that but I had to figure it out the hard way. ::dang::

Yeah, we should probably have a "Frequently Asked Questions" forum.

What I've found that works without all that messin' around is to do a quote post, copy and paste the unposted contents of that into the new location and remove the [quote][/quote] so it shows up like a regular post. Now back out of where you were quoting the post so that disappears. Hope that makes sense
