I like competition, it keeps the makers on the edge
I also like winners, I have to admit that I like high end makers and I like goodlooking knives. I also like preformance and quality. But I like a history of the knife and maker as well.
When I get my Pierre or my Burke (my first full custom knives) I can tell a story. I can tell cool stories about the making and the makers. Since I spend a lot of time around the kitchen table with friends I love telling cool stories. We like to discuss the food, the wine, the taste, the making of the food. Lots of my friend are now starting to ask for knives. One even both 2 knives from Pierre, without knowing **** about knives - he just wanted great knives.
I would like to see a winner. And I like to nominate Theory, JohnnyChance and Colin as judges. 240 Guytos.
Im willing to send in my Burke and Pierre in the contest. I want to see Devin, fowler and all the other also enter the competition.
Someone can contact Blade Magazine about it as well - I guess they would be interested.
