    So I need some FEED BACK .
    The Historical section for the most part has been a place to for me to share things I find interesting and share with the forum.
    But I really would like to know .

    1* Is this the content you want to see on the Kitchen Knife Forum.

    2* What direction or content you wish to see.

    3*Is the photo of the day,which was started for the ease of the holiday season and i was thinking of ending in Feb
    a good thing or something else in it's place .


    I do get some very nice comments and I thank the forum member's for that
    This is more asking for the direction and comments of where you would like the section to take good , bad or indifferent.

    you can always send me a PM. TOO .


    Thank you

    Steeley

    Do what you do, Haven't heard a complaint yet and I enjoy throwing a little bit of my own research in . Hope you don't mind.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Spot on steeley! Im one of your biggest fans, some of the most interesting content here...

    My favorites?

    I specially like what you do when you link equipment, arquitecture, old kitchens or appliances to historic events... Like the photos that were posted of the Hindemburg.... Those were very interesting...

    Or when an item that isn't used anymore and we have to guess what it is...

    I like knifes that are really, really old... Maybe an interesting segment would be to find daggers, knives, katanas, etc. and post their history and how they were found... Kind of like what happened in the movie The Red Violin but the kitchen version of it? Its probably easier said than done.

    Some of these objects have had a very interesting passing on, they have belonged to historical figures or passed on among family members for generations, all of that is interesting to me.

    Im interested as well in the Development of steel thruoght the ages, development of Japanese steel and its use in swords is a good topic, as is the development of Damascus and its reinstatement is a topic I would love to learn more about.

    Are there documents that show their processes or are they only passed among artisans from generation to generation? How about the certification of knives in Japan? How does that work? Who does it? How did this evolve since the times of the Samurai?

    I think all of these are interesting topics (unfortunately cameras are only involved in the most recent part of history).

    Just ideas!

    Whatever you decide to do.. Thank you for taking the time to put this together!
