After puttering with knifemaking as a hobby for a decade - I'm looking to semi-retire in 2012 and do a lot more of it! Yes, I've enjoyed making some Bowie knives, but honestly - I haven't been in a physical fight since Junior High (these days they call it "Middle School") - - - so I'm really more interested in kitchen blades!

From the soggy green hills of Western Oregon: Greetings!!

Same thing, just a different handle. :shocked3:

No, I am just teasing.
There is a lot to learn here about what makes a really good kitchen knife.
I think you will enjoy yourself here.

You can't trust people from Oregon. They tend to be all wet................

Butt welcome anyway.

Welcome Michael and congratulations!

It is official.

With your admission to being a knife maker there are now more knife and handle makers/hobbyists members on this forum than non... :D
