View Full Version : Magazine article on Japanese kitchen knives

06-10-2012, 06:18 PM
I wrote an article about collecting and cooking with Japanese kitchen knives that published this week in Indulge magazine.
Sharpened, re-tipped and polished my knives for the photo shoot. Brought around 10 knives and they chose 6 to shoot.
I did mention this forum in the article.

This link will take you to the digital edition http://digital.indulgedfw.com/Olive/ODE/Indulge/.
The article is on pages 26-30.

It is so nice to read an article and not cringe while reading it. Nice job Steve.

Loved reading it. Gave a view that no other article has shown, that should be.

Here is a picture of the studio photographer, Ross, taking a photos of my knives. He built a white "Fort" around the knives and shot the photos up a ladder in the ceiling.

I think the idea was to light the reflections and to shoot at a distance to keep himself out of the reflections, or at least small.

After reading every other kitchen knife article, I always wished that the author had just spent a few hours browsing this forum or maybe talked to a few of the knuts before writing the article. However, I realized that was probably never going to happen...never did I hope -much less think it possible- that someone from the forum would actually author and article themselves.

You struck a great balance between depth / factual, hardcore info and breezy readability to keep it interesting / accessible to knewbies and the gen pop.

Really well done! The knives and photography where awesome too!

Thanks everybody for the nice comments :biggrin:

The article seems to be going over well with readers new to knives, but posting it here was the real test.
