Privacy Policy is a blog that is designed to help knife enthusiasts select the best tool for their needs. While we have no intention of ever collecting or harvesting user information some data is critical to the way our website works and functions. We do not have user sign up functions and we do not see any personal information beyond the absolute minimum required to make a website work such as IP address, Cookies that we create, user agent strings and information you give us while leaving comments.

A further explanation of what we collect can be found below.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

This information comes from Gravatar and is not stored by ourselves.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. Please see their privacy policies for more information.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

We use Google Analytics, a free analytics software to webmasters. We use this information to track user behavior and traffic to determine if content we are putting out and creating is good or bad. All data that Google collect through this website is anonymised and secure.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

The simple solution to how we protect your data is by not collecting it in the first place. The most data we have from users will be from people who leave comments on our posts which will contain the data you gave us like your name, email and IP address. We do not collect anything beyond that so you have no concerns.

Our website is also entirely encrypted and secured to the best of our ability.
