Subforum for this smith is wanted!

I love his work, and would like to have a subforum for him

I'm all for this, just requires the maker's participation is all.

I can contact him, as I also have a order at him.

Bill Burke is one of my favs. He skills are far beyon most others.
For me its important that he shows his work.


Dave:
I would like to have a gallery of each subforum, without posibility to comment. Just to have their work at one place :)

I moved this thread out of the site feedback section since it's turning into more of a knife talk thread.

Bill's been offered his own sub-forum. :)

We shouldn't pressure him to accept this though. He may have good reasons for not being able to take on his own sub forum and we should respect his wishes.


*Note on Knifemaker's sub-forums....Knifemakers making good kitchen knives are welcome to have their own sub-forums here with the only requirement being participation of themselves within their sub-forum. We are not going to make galleries for makers, this costs money in storage disc space used. The goal is to build a community while supporting knifemakers the best we can but we have to strike a balance somewhere. I suspect that this will have to be addressed more and more as the forum grows in size.

Good to see you here, Bill. I heard I will see one of your knives up close very soon :) and will make a saya for it. Will have to match the horn with a tiger maple wood. Look forward to it. I am a big fan of your and Devin work, so this will be fun.

There is 0 chance of Izuka-san (shigefusa) or Heiji-san... i know both of these guys and not only are they not computer people, but moreover, they are the kind of guys that would rather be making knives in their free time... sorry Oivind

Oh man, I am missing all the important things, somehow I have hard time keeping up with all the activity here. Great to see Bill here, I hope there will be more. What about Shinichi Watanabe, he is computer-savvy enough. Didn't he also post on the forum that must not be named recently?
