    Western Maker Comparison

    Thank you for doing this. Many of these knives are hard to get and of course have a significant investment component. It is much appreciated that you posted your thoughts on them as many of this (read me) will likely never have the chance to try all of them.

    Burnt Chestnut?

    Looking for a Beater Knife

    There was a pretty good thread on this a bit earlier this year. I don't know if this link to other threads works but the title was old beater meet new beater and it was from someone that is a pro and works in a kitchen every day...
