You can make money making knives ?!?!
I've made knives for over 20 years and never once did I think I've made the "perfect knife" .. or made "money" at it .
I've made enough to make more knives , and feed the obsession of crafting knives ...
Only Big manufacturers and Bob Kramer make money on making knives ...
I found the Kitchen Knife Forum while on a search for the best steels to use in my Military style blades . I kept finding info on performance and use on kitchen knives throughout the search . It made me rethink the knives I was making , and made me change everything I do in the crafting of knives .
I have stopped taking orders , except for Military - so my time spent on knives can be DEVOTED to the crafting of Kitchen knives . I am taking this as serious as any aspect of my knifemaking .
The people who I hope to now make knives for , are the most difficult to satisfy . They USE their knives , and use them often , they BETTER perfom . They have some of the best knives in the world to compare them to .
I would have to be crazy to start all over , in an area of knifemaking where no one knows me ....
Yet here I am .. The Challenge excites me more than you could imagine ..
Passion .. or Insanity ....?
