View Full Version : Welcome Back In The Kitchen!

Hi folks,
It seems like forever that I posted to a forum when it's only been a few days, I'm glad to be back. :)

The Kitchen Knife Forums have been created for 2 reasons....

1. To give the kitchen knifenuts back their home.

2. To help the small craftsman/businessman survive/thrive in this market.


It's my hope that we can put the drama from the past behind us and move forward to new and better things. Still though, I don't intend to forget the past because as the saying goes, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." I vow to learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others and to do my best not to repeat these errors here.

Also, even though we have vendors within this forum we are not going to be a commercial magnet, we will only allow vendors and craftsman who meet strict criteria. This forum will not become the vendor type playground that we have seen at other sites. Vendors will be restricted on posting their services and sales to their respective vendor sub-forums. Any violations will not be tolerated. If anyone sees vendor misbehavior (including from myself) please report it to a moderator. Problems will not go unanswered here.

So with that out of the way......let's get back to talking about knives.

Welcome!
Dave

One more note....

I'm real new to hosting a forum and using the associated software so I ask for both your feedback on any issues that arise and for your patience at the same time.

Thanks,
Dave

Great to be back posting again although in my case I have only been prohibited from posting for 16 hours.:p

Dave, you have really done a great job getting this forum up and running in such a short time. Well done.

Nice to have a new place. You picked a great forum software as well. I own this software as well and it can be a bit intimidating at first but overall it is pretty easy to use.

Intimidating is an understatement! I feel like what I imagine Bill Gates felt like after he climbed up out of that motel room. :D

The level of addiction to the online community/forum is scary.

This is a grand effort Dave, well done, looks like this won't crash every 12 minutes too.

@ Colin, just post the emails here, I'm sure we could all do with a laugh..... ;)

@ Stefan, just go back and start a few threads about Dave, that will get you kicked pretty fast :D
Oh, and btw thank you for the Wa handle that Dave used to pimp my Hiro AS it's awesome (will have to post some pix of it soon).

Stefanx2. I wasn't on KF for close to a week because 1) I was tied up with the work going on at my house, and 2) KF kept crashing whenever I had time to try and visit. I got the emails from DM about his new forum, logged on/ registered, looked around, gave the thumbs-up, then went to visit KF. And that's when I started reading about what happened... Sadly all the threads were long-since locked by the time I got there.

I really think this forum will be a bit more, er, intimate. But not so intimate that people are spying and capturing all our online movements. :D

The link that you use was the picasa webpage, after you are there, right click on the picture and click properties.

The URL of the picture was shown, copy that URL to the picture upload and :cool:

Cool! I was going to post that picture! It is the house that I made for the Takeda. There is a rare earth magnet in the wood to hold the knife, and a notch in the top to hold handle. The top is hinged on both sides. It will end up on the wall.

Nice to see you here, as well.

Fair warning that if you post a pic of your latest chef's knife, you may be asked to do a passaround here, too!

Actually I've been talking to Dave about doing up another one,

but do it with a video WIP.
we just have to decide what kind to do.

This forum looks great, Dave! I can actually check this one on Chrome, because there aren't a torrent of ads slamming my browser.

Glad to see Stephan is here. His knife really caught my eye! A passaround might just wind up being a first date for me!

Can I post this or do a moderator need to accept the post?

Hi All,

New to this world. Was looking at picking up a Konosuke HD Wa-Gyuto as an all-around knife. Found the "other" forum first but noticed they had a ton of info but not much recent activity. A little investigating and found my way over on this forum. I'll be searching the "other forum" for older posts and posting here for current help!

One question...I still have a lot more research to do regarding knife care/sharpening. Are there links to forum posts or websites that are good generally accepted "start here" points with regards? Thinking of getting the Korin DVD first but any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks

Welcome st! :)

We have a knowledge section here but it's real new and not very populated at all. I hope to change this soon but in the meantime please feel free to ask any question you might have. Everyone here is willing to help.
