I don't know much about the knife business, but in the world of photography, if less than half your annual income is derived from photographic pursuits, you are still classed as an "amateur" no matter how skilled you are.
Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Try spending 30 seconds in my head. That will freak you right out!!
