Thread: Greetings from Oregon

    Greetings from Oregon

    After puttering with knifemaking as a hobby for a decade - I'm looking to semi-retire in 2012 and do a lot more of it! Yes, I've enjoyed making some Bowie knives, but honestly - I haven't been in a physical fight since Junior High (these days they call it "Middle School") - - - so I'm really more interested in kitchen blades!

    From the soggy green hills of Western Oregon: Greetings!!

    Same thing, just a different handle.

    No, I am just teasing.
    There is a lot to learn here about what makes a really good kitchen knife.
    I think you will enjoy yourself here.

    You can't trust people from Oregon. They tend to be all wet................

    Butt welcome anyway.
