      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I'd like your opinion

Question

My wife thinks I have a problem. She thinks I have a fetish with knives. I don't believe her.

Somewhat disappointed in you fellers.

Was hoping for some serious knife porn. :)

My current rotation of knives. Looking for a nice pig sticker, haven't found something to my liking just yet. There's a Rambo and a big Bowie knife around here somewhere...........but they have always been useless.

Maybe smurf can locate his readers and take a more in focus pic next time so we can actually tell what he's running with. :D

Believe me, I do not think it is strange what so ever to lay out your gear on a table and take inventory.  Collecting knives is a fine hobby to have, beats beanie babies.

Looked it up.  $109 at Cabala's.  If I was going to put that down then I would go for a Leech Lake knife may be.

My buddy Terry can make ya one...out of anything ya want. (almost) I love mine.  He made if for my bday present 15 years ago.  He pours and makes his own steel; has a huge ingot in his shop. It's fascinating. He makes all the sheaths, too. Have a nice 1975 Schrade 498, three Schrade 340T's "Old Timer" from the 70's,  a Case XX stag handle folder from the 70's, still NIB, and an early Barlow USA 2 blade folder...

I understand where you are coming from, but most of my slicing up these days occurs out in the woods. And usually it's only a meals worth.

Thanks, Duff. He's a master at it.....

They do look great but it's one of those if you have to ask what they cost?  You can't afford it deals I would bet. ;)

Duff I like that Wustof but I have a Leech Lake and is going to have to do, but that looks like a quality knife. My everyday carry is my swiss army knife but I guess I like to collect cause I could not tell you how many I have. On my dresser there is at least 5 or 6 knifes all the time. My Leatherman, Puma Plainsmen, another small Swiss Army, another smaller Puma and a Buck folding hunter. Like to keep them handy !!

As long as they are ALL sharp! I see no problems! And what is wrong with a switch blade?  I have a permit and carry one a lot!:)

Kershaw fan here, since I bought my first in '82.  And I dig the Ken Onion assisted-opening models.

Thought I lost one camping one fall (looked everywhere) and that model is no longer made, the Scallion was the closet to it, so I picked it up.

Then the following fall I found the first knife rolled up in the tent. :)

 

I tend to use the little caping knife as my main knife on camping trips.

Everything from gutting/gilling trout to cutting cheese and a ribeye.
