I wanted to share that this months issue of BLADE has Two KKF members featured! :cool2: If I missed anyone I apologize.

Mr. Bill Burke and Myself are featured in the Knife Makers Showcase section of the mag. Woooooot! :thumbsup::thumbsup: (insert shameless plug here)

I am proud and honored and humbled to be featured in BLADE magazine!!! Which is a milestone of sorts as a knife maker.

Best part is, both of the knives featured are KITCHEN KNIVES!!!! Bill's Tamahagane gyuto, and my Meteorite damascus gyuto..

I have always strive'd to make the best knives that I can, to listen and learn from as many people as possible, makers and clients alike. Along the way.. I have made many great friends and keep learning and evolving, as well as.. I am having great fun!!
I can say with certainty that KNIFE people are the best people on this planet! Thanks KKF and all you guys for your support and help!

God Bless YA!

That. Is. So. Freakin. Awesome. Congrats to you both!

I agree that it's extra spectacular that it's kitchen knives, real working kitchen knives, that made the cut, so to speak.

IMO, it's a durn shame that Blade doesn't cover kitchen knife makers on a regular basis. You guys are so unbelievably talented and make knives that get used WAAAAAYYYYY more than your average folder or skinning knife or whatever.
Congrats to Randy and Bill. I hope to see some other kitchen knife makers featured in the near future AND on a regular basis!
