If anything your post was what I needed to do something about this. We have a lot of this type of content coming up so it warranted the expansion. Austin was cool with it so it got done. :)

I hope to see lots of you guys posting your rehandles & sayas and whatever else you get into. :thumbsup:

Dave are we allowed to post our work areas/shops?

I was thinking about doing a "Let's see your shop!" thread. I just built some work benches and will soon be building a grinder so I got excited :O

It took me a while to figure out it was a subforum, Handiwork Display.

This would just give an in for the back door knifemakers to talk about or introduce themselves and this isn't something that we need more of here.

I guess I was hoping for an explanation, as I'm not sure how seeing someones workshop would lead to someone pushing their product, nor do I understand why new knifemakers are not welcomed....disheartening comment, unless I am understanding it incorrectly.

I'm in a unique position where I'm constantly having to enforce the Terms of Use that 90% of the knifemakers who come here flat out disrespect and then give me crap about like they're owed something. Before starting this forum I had a different level of respect for knifemakers as a whole, I used to think that they're just thrifty (cheap) yet always giving of information/sharing of their knowledge, but now I know that they can also be a little obnoxious and very demanding and that bums me out but anyway it is what it is and I can't change that. What I don't want to do though is to put up another come post about yourself thread that attracts more of these guys. Besides, this forum isn't about displaying our shops, it's about displaying our handiwork.

I just think there should be a little more leeway to the rule: Never ever sell anything you make ever, under any circumstances, or you can't post pictures on the forum.

I think there is a difference between people who make things for fun or wish to sell sometime in the future and people who are trying to sell products or who run a business that is trying to sell stuff on the forum.

We already spoke about this in private but I guess we'll do it again here. :disdain:



Many, and I repeat MANY, knifemakers/handlemakers/etc came here posting pictures of their work and claimed "I'm never going to sell", or "I don't plan on selling anything", or "I'm only doing this part time", or "I don't make any money at this", or "I only charge for the cost of the materials", blah blah blah...... but guess what? They all sold.

So what they really should have claimed is "I am not willing to pay to sell here" - after all - that's what they really meant.

Yes there's a difference between people who are doing this stuff for fun vs doing it for $$ as a business, however, when the folks who are doing it for $$ lie about their intentions (and get caught) we're left having to make some crappy decisions that affect everyone. Still though we just opened up this new forum to allow for non $$ making people to post their pictures so where's the problem? I mean if you're in that category then post away - if you're in it for the $$ then you're out of luck here and you're going to have to make the decision to either step up and contribute like all the others have or have a seat and enjoy the ride.

Oh and while I'm at it, knifemakers are welcome at KKF - always have been, they're just not welcome to come in and build a rep or sell or do any kind of business. Is this so hard to deal with?
