    Checking-In Fom California

    Greetings, My name is Don Andrade and I am a knifemaker.

    I did not see where I could reply to the note I got upon joining from Dave. My overlook in placing my website in the sig.-line...sorry about that.
    I joined is because my mentor Tai Goo told me that my name was mentioned in a thread about chef knife makers.....but I was told that in no way can anyone promote their knives on this forum?
    Is this correct?

    I need some insight into this, and would like to know how I can possibly become a part of the forum in a meaningful way. I mean can I post images of knives I made? Is that promoting my knives?
    Let me know how to proceed.

    Thanks...I am excited about the idea of a forum all about chef knives

    I was trained as a chef and worked in professional kitchens for many years. I currently make chef knives and was a sculptor for 20-years before I made my first knife.
    I also currently teach whole foods cooking as preventative medicine with my wife.
    I would give links to what I do if it were allowed....but I will just have to wait to find out what can be share and what can-not.

    Happy to be here and looking forward to sharing more when I find out what is acceptable.

    For the uninitiated, Tai Goo is a VERY special custom knife maker, imho...

    Welcome Don! You have some nice looking stuff!

    We have a lot of knifemakers here who are not vendors, so don't worry, you should easily be able to hang around here and still show what you are working on.
