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.
