    Hi from Portland OR

    Hi guys, Im a cook in Portland Oregon. Ive been collecting knives ever sense I was a kid, when I started cooking professionally I started collecting chefs knives. Anyways, I've been wanting to make knives for a long time so i decided to go for it I made my first one grinding with files and doing every thing by hand. It came out really good. I have a few more in the works. I'll post pics when there done.

    This forum is awesome! There is so much good info, glad i found it.

    Welcome to another Oregon knife knut. It gets fun here. Where do you cook and what do you cook?
    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I just finished building my grinder today. Ground a few blades with it. I guess i got a little carried away grinding the heavy chefs knife and melted my lower wheel on my platen attachment. Oh well.. it was fun while it lasted. got a new aluminum wheel coming from beaumont metalwork. heres some pics:
