Reason for not liking Nutnfancy:
1. I happen to know that Cold Steel is the best brand of knives on the market. He's wasting time and money, and his breath, by reviewing every knife on the market. Lynn is so far ahead of ALL other knife manufacturers, that it's a waste of time to even consider them.
You know this? Wow. I'm a long-time CS fan, and they make up by far the largest part of my knife collection, and always will. But the best? That's a big claim. How would you quantify that?
2. He doesn't know when to shut his mouth. I'll use his Fitzen videos as an example. He goes to this man's shop, and the man, Fitzen, has a wealth of knowledge, and Nutn keeps yapping nonstop, and won't let the guy get a word in edgewise. The fact that he goes to Fitzen's shop is the one bright spot in all his videos, and he can't seem to clap his trap.
So it annoys you that his reviews take at least 10 minutes, often longer. Wow. That IS pretty factual evidence!
3. He's BORING. He keeps talking and talking, and his head must be full of sand or something, because he never says anything INTERESTING.
Well, not interesting to you. To me, and many others who are not as supremely knowledgeable as you clearly are, his reviews are in fact quite interesting, as evidenced by his ratings.
And again, it seems the main, if not in fact the only objection you seem to have is the fact that he likes to take his time.
4. Last but not least, I think he KNOWS that Cold Steel is the best, but he just does not have the guts to say it.
You actually do slightly have a point here. He likes CS even more than he professes, but it's not PC to say so.
But then you contradict yourself:
He's so worried about hurting someone's feelings, and being "brand myopic", as he puts it, that he wouldn't know the truth if it hit him with a 2x4.
So which is it? Does he or does he not know the truth?
He's AFRAID, and GUTLESS.
Oh I don't know. He's out there, showing his face and those of his family and friends, risking being ridiculed by master bladesmiths cum former Navy SEAL instructors such as yourself. And then there's the small thing of his having served in a combat environment and as a LEO (still is serving btw). Or do you contest that?
I don't think he's a coward. And I've seen my fair share of those.
I have videos on youtube,
Amazing. Let me bow to you then.
and I don't give a pile of dung who likes what I have to say or who agrees with me.
Oh silly. You know you just wanna be loved! Why deny it??
I put them there because I want to make information available to people, who have enough sense to listen.
Well good. No one should deny you that, or badmouth you for what you do, or the way you do it. Why not accord others the same courtesy?

Yep. There's some useful stuff in that ole book. You should take heed.

As you expected, it took me a while to recover from this devastating post (sorry I overlooked it the first time).
odobo, take a load off and lighten up. Direct your energy towards more positive ends.
