I just wanted to say hello to everyone and let you know how excited I am to have found this forum. Thanks to Stephen Fowler's link on his web site.
What drew me in instantly was the passion displayed for knives and there use. Anyone that looks at sharpening with a 6000 grit stone, measures knife design in mm and who talks about balance points is right up my alley. That along with the strong influence of my fellow ABS bladesmiths makes this a great place for users and makers to share design, function and performance of the blade.
