Wow!  So, what are they looking for?  If it is a survey of their products, what difference does it make what your profession is?  That is weird.  Like you said, who better than 30+ year hobbyist?!  Let's hope they have the courtesy to at least e-mail you back and give an explanation.

Why bother, surgical blades from Swan-Morton are better and probably cheaper (under $10 for 100 pieces!). If they don't want your data, it's their loss!

Link? We don't need no stinkin' link; we could do our own hobby knife survey! For example, I keep no fewer than four knives with Number 11 blades in them:

1. A general-cutting knife for removing parts from the sprues.

2. One with a brand-new Number 11 blade; the blade eventually goes on knife Number 1. I painted the end of the handle blue for identification purposes.

3. One with a blade that I dulled by scraping on the concrete outside my apartment and use as a putty applicator; the end of the handle is red.

4. One that I use for cutting paper and cardboard as I got tired of tearing up my other knife blades every time I wrap Christmas and birthday gifts. The handle end is painted white.

I keep one more separate knife with a Number 10 blade; its handle end is painted yellow.

I keep two more larger knives, one with a Number 2 blade and one with the larger counterpart to the Number 10 blade (or is that the 2?). I rarely use them, actually.

I've got various-shaped other blades that I had acquired years ago, like a chiseling blade but never use them. I could get rid of them, I suppose, but then two days later, I'll want one of those alternative blades!
