    Tall guys an push cutting

    Well over 6 feet tall, I've long lamented the height of the average prep table. I've found that as much as I believe in the push cut, I am much more likely to pull cut. Is this a habit I developed because my large frame combined with my low tipped Carter, Fowler, and yanagi? Any other...

    http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/1xuh02/im_a_bladesmith_heres_a_knife_i_just_completed/ Murray Carter is on the front page of reddit. Probably nothing new for regular knife nuts, but the rest of the makers/vendors should consider the marketing potential. Almost 7k votes on the post...

    Doctors in the UK tried to ban knives.

    Found on reddit: 2005 Article about physicians feeling that kitchen knives should required not to be as "pointy". I guess the good guys won that fight? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4581871.stm

    Carter 50/50 deba

    Up for sale is my symmetrical Carter Deba. People here have pretty good taste, so its no surprise that they have fond memories of the knives up for sale. But for me this thing has been a big disappointment, I think I just don't know what the point of this style is. Its been sitting in my...

    LF cooks in Madison Wi

    Posting for jobs in a smaller town like Madison Wisconsin is sure to be a long shot. Losing the Internets blanket of anonymity is also a bit off putting, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling! We're hiring 1 line cook for hot side, and 1 sushi roller for the bar here at Sushi Muramoto --...

    Leather Sheaths

    I've seen a couple pretty cool leather sheaths pictured on the forums from time to time. My question is: Does anyone have a semi regular vendor or hobbyist in mind that turns them out. They might be less practical than a simple wooden saya, but they look so badass. Sorry if this...
