    Boa tarde! from Brazil

    I just found this place and it sure is a great source of information, despite the fact that it is still very young!
    As a knifemaker, kitchen knives represent a small part of my work so far but I am very interested in changing that situation and have been working on a few new pieces latelly, and am sure this forum will give me a lot of inspiration, so thanks for creating it!

    Welcome

    Here is a simple rule: Pics or it didn´t happen.

    So post some pics of your work

    Welcome! Glad to have another maker, and see Brazil represented!

    Blunt truth: your stuff shows you are going to have to adjust to the typical things for a crossover from outdoor knives to high performance kitchen knives: Slimmer handles, thinner blades, flatter profiles, neater fittings. That's not unusual IME. Many here are pretty hard to please, so I Hope you like a challenge!

    Here's a little gallery of Mr. Campos' existing kitchen work:

    Thank you all for the warm welcome and specially to John for posting the pics of my work and for his constructive criticism.
    I make knives meant to be used and that´s why I am so interested in kitchen knives and am sure this forum will help me a lot in refining and improving my work. Admitedly, some of my knives are pretty rough... some are slightly less rough, though...

    Oh, you may be making the exact knives your customers want. But I was just saying that on this forum and others like it, the preference tends to be thin blades, functional handles, flat edges. I really dig, BTW, that your handles are left handed--are you a lefty, or were they made for a lefty?
