hunting knife videos
« on: June 21, 2018, 11:03:16 pm »
I just received some information from Tormek Marketing. Apparently, we have misunderstood the purpose of the hunting knife videos. They are targeted for hunters in Sweden who may not have heard about the Tormek. The series will be monthly, beginning in July, and will be in Swedish. Tormek does not own the youtube channel.

The series was also filmed in English. Tormek may show these at some later date on its own channel.

While the youtubes may hold some general interest for us, we are not the target market. I plan to watch the English version, as my knife knowledge is almost exclusively related to kitchen knives.

Too bad... sounded like it had potential.   :(

I agree. Except for my pocket knives, the only knives I have sharpened are my kitchen knives. I would like to learn more about outdoor knives and sharpening them.

I heard about this slow-speed grinder from Sweden that will sharpen almost anything.  Can't remember the name, but I think some guy named Stig used to be selling them.

Cheer up; all is not lost.

We do have access to an excellent video. This is a PBS (Public Broadcasting System, the public television in the US) Nova series program, "Secrets of the Viking Sword”. Here is a link to it which should work anywhere:

https://www.pbs.org/video/nova-secrets-viking-sword/

It is a fascinating story. As Australian Crocodile Dundee might say, "That's a knife!"

Enjoy.

We're sorry, but this video is not available in your region due to right restrictions.  :'(

Misunderstood, or explained badly, to a not target or language speaking audience?
Favorite line, from a post here:

Fascinating. Thanks.
Giving an advice is easy.
Accepting an advice is good.
Knowing which advice is worth adopting and which not, is a virtue.
