I like http://www.bladesandbushcraft.com
, though it's fairly new and still growing so doesn't have dozens of new posts every time you visit. BCUSA has tons of stuff and is always worth a visit.
I also like http://eseeknives.com
, which has a good variety of forum topics and some good folks.
I have to say that the added stuff that comes with supporting hammockforums sounds like a great investment, though.
