    Sounds like fun. Can you post some pics of his previous work?

    I'll see if he is interested in doing a 240ish western gyoto for a pass around. send it to everyone interested.

    Joe's will all be 52100 in the beginning. until he gets to where he can forge weld stainless and then stainless to carbon.

    I am in as well. I always love to try out new knives and meat new makers. I will be needing that knife from Bill first though!

    How about a Burke?

    Hello All,

    I am Joe. I am looking to make a few kitchen knives. I have been working on a few designs based off my experiences with Epic Edge, my father, and fifteen years of knife shows. These models will be designed roughly on the software program known as Solidworks. I will post a few of my ideas soon.

    I will be honest with all of you though. I am a full time college student spending 14 hrs a day six days a week learning. This semester poses to be my toughest as it consists of Calculus 3, Differential Equations, Intro to Coding, and Physics 2 with Calculus. This and my beautiful mate will take up a good section of my time.

    The point is that I will be working on my time when I can. Due to these parameters I will produce a knife and post photos of it on the forums. If someone likes it they may inquire further and possibly buy it. However, I will likely not have time to custom cater a knife for anyone nor will I be very willing to alter a finished product.

    With that in mind I am very open to discuss/consider ideas, features, and criticism. I may not listen for reasons of my own, but will respect those who respect me and my decisions.

    I look forward to making good friends and performing knives for an affordable price. Thank you all for your interest and time.

    -Joe
