    Hi from Michael Rader + a few pics

    Hi guys. I was invited here by Stephan Fowler, so blame him :-)

    I live near Seattle in Washington State. Earned my Mastersmith rating in 2010 and have been making knives and swords since around 1992 or so.


    This one has damascus made by David Lisch and some engraving by Tom Ferry.






    This one is 52100 with Goddards famous "mustard finish" pre-patina treatment.



    So, that's just a few of my old ones. I sell most of my kitchen knives through Blade Gallery/ http://www.epicedge.com and I also take a few custom orders. I'm not going to Blade this year, but plan to go back in 2012.

    Please feel free to ask any questions and visit my website: http://www.raderblade.com if you are bored. Thanks and I'm going to have to poke around here a little more....

    Michael,

    Good to see you posting here. You should get Dave to make a subforum for you as he's done for Stephan and other knifemakers.

    Always a pleasure to see pics of your work. I recognize the gyuto that Saltydog had, and sold on eBay (damascus with the bluish background).

    Congratulations on your engagement. Best wishes to both of you.

    Again, glad you're here.

    Rick

    Welcome to KKF Michael. You're pretty well known here already and you'd be welcome to a sub-forum if you like. Just shoot me an email or PM for the details if you're interested.

    Dave
