    Hi Everyone from Westchester , NY

    Hey everyone , Just found this forum on my search about Japanese style knives .
    I saw some familiar names like Del E. , Stephan F. and David B. from Knife Dogs . I also found Stefan's Handle site as well just today , amazing stuff .
    I've been making Knives for over 20 years and never made a Kitchen Knife .
    I've just been bit by some sort of bug and wanted to get into making blades that people would really use .
    Even though I've made many a blade , I know that knives in the kitchen truly must perfom .
    I'm going to look around a bit and see what I can pick up from you , the Experts .
    Thanks for having me , Bill

    That is the beauty of kitchen knives- they exist to be used. No matter how beautiful, if it don't cut, it don't cut it!
    And it is in the hands most every day.

    That would me and Mike Zollner. Westchester County is a populous county, almost a million people, so three people out of million doesn't make a lot, I suppose, but on the forum with 520 members it is a lot.

    Where you are at, Bill?
