Or they went out in the midday sun, along with their dogs, who were mad.

So, did he ever come back to take any of you up on your advice? No indication that he ever even looked, certainly hasn't bothered to offer his thanks for your time. Maybe it doesn't bother you, but I get frustrated when I go to the trouble to compose a comprehensive response and then never even know if it was read by the original questioner.

By the way, I didn't reply here simply because I don't know any UK specific brands to recommend. I have Wustof, Chicago Cutlery, and an unbranded carbon steel chef knife that I picked up somewhere. They all seem to do fine for me. I keep them sharp and they all have decent steel and are comfortable to use.

Yes, it does happen a lot, and it is frustrating. What's so nice about DC is that we get into the discussion, and I think others benefit from all the opinions, even if the OP checks out.

It all just becomes part of the archive, until someone asks the same question(probably in like 3 weeks or so), and adds to the multitude of opinions shared. I know it may seem gruff, but some of the folks could just use the search feature, and read to their hearts content.

There has never been a shortage of "One hit wonders" that come, ask for advice, and disappear, never to be heard from again. . .all part of the www.

I see the same thing on photography and golf forums too. And I agree that often the information helps someone else with the same problem who was too shy to ask the question themselves. I guess I was just raised to say please and thank you, and I find it disheartening that such simple politeness seems to be dying in many circles.

Anyway, eat well.

I wouldn't get worked up over it. Odds are he read the first few replies and made his decision. And, considering many of the recommendations, spent way too much money on a knife.

Maybe the OP could not get a license to purchase those potentially lethal items
