Thread: Happy 1st Anniversary to!

  1. #1

    Happy 1st Anniversary to!

    So it's been one whole year since we began this forum. It's been a crazy year for many of us but hopefully a better direction being seen by most. For myself it started off with uncertainty but has ended in pride and satisfaction, both with this forum and my business.

    None of this would have been possible without the help of some key people. My constant & consistent adviser Jim (our Admin & co-founder), my long time friend (and got your back man) Ryan, John the "Super Mod" (ahem.....I mean Global Mod), Steve for the logos, and all our newer mods (Dave, Len, Emanuel, & Andrew) all play a key role here in setting up and keeping the place running.

    Not to be left out are all the vendors, knifemakers, and hobbyist craftsmen who bring us not only needed funding but share with us their knowledge and experience which serves to enrich the community beyond description.

    Then there's the membership - the heart and soul of the forums. Without the quality members we have here we wouldn't have this vibrant community to share as you folks are the lifeblood of this place. I've said this before and I will never forget my words, "this is a community - the forums are simply a meeting place for the community to gather". What this means to me is that we all need each other to keep this place growing, lively, and worthy of our input and attention.

    As a whole we should all be proud of what we've created here - the best internet discussion forum on the planet for kitchen knives.

    I look forward to many more anniversaries to come!

    Thanks to all of you for your contributions,

    Love this forum! Over my entire career I was always considered to have an extraordinary (even unhealthy!) obsession with things that cut, here I have discovered a cutlery cohort!

    Unfortunately, I also THOUGHT I knew the last word about sharpening.

    Happy Anniversary, and thanks for validating my fixation!
