I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but Mattrud wrote up a very cool article which should be near and dear to all our hearts.
Great stuff Matt!

Great article! I love some of the comments, what about so and so (who doesn't even make kitchen knives) or, "he's only worked in the kitchen so his knowledge of knives is very limited"

But the comment about the two makers a poster brought up are true. Neither make kitchen knives and Phil has been dead for some time. I also don't remember anyone here ever getting on the William Henry (no such person in real life) band wagon.

I made a post about kitchen knives and the ones mentioned. I just hope that I didn't start a flame war. Great article Matt, well informative and I loved reading it.

Joshua Burwell.

It looks like the cartoon version of your dad and cartoon Bill Burke get their cartoon shirts at the same shop.

Great read and very entertaining pics.

Also American knife makers, besides Kramer with the apron, wear silly shirts.:)

Late to the party, but I'll pile on. Congrats on a great article that doesn't speak down to knife lovers but is approachable for everyone else. Well done.

Thanks guys,

The magazine asked me to write something. so I did. The original article was a bit longer. It had two sections on each maker. One about them and one that was far more technical about what they make. But it was streamlined a bit and combined into one section for each. The goal of the article was to get people to know who the makers are, a little bit of information about them and what they are doing. The other goal was to open the door to people who's knife knowledge is limited. Give them something they would understand and hopefully get them to take it the next step. Hopefully we can do that in the future.

Well I think you will get a bunch of foodies going that way at any rate. Good job. I would say job well done, but that won't be known for a while.

Pretty cool deal. Any idea when the new mag hit's the shelves? I checked my Whole Foods a few weeks ago and it wasn't there yet.

I think the editors did a good job then. It was a great primer and people wanting more can always Google it and will inevitably end up here.

Great article, Matt! I think that it will serve its purpose. It would be interesting to run google search analysis for thoes 3 maker's names and see the trend for June through July.

Thank for posting Miles!

Thanks Matt. This came during the family reunion. They enjoyed reading it. They said they can't remember me ever wearing an American flag shirt though.

Everyone's got an American flag on them, Rader and Carter are apparently Republican Senators.

Bob Kramer is a Commie I guess.
