I can contact him, as I also have a order at him.

Bill Burke is one of my favs. He skills are far beyon most others.
For me its important that he shows his work.


Dave:
I would like to have a gallery of each subforum, without posibility to comment. Just to have their work at one place :)

I moved this thread out of the site feedback section since it's turning into more of a knife talk thread.

I was hoping for his own subforum :)

Bill's been offered his own sub-forum. :)

We shouldn't pressure him to accept this though. He may have good reasons for not being able to take on his own sub forum and we should respect his wishes.


*Note on Knifemaker's sub-forums....Knifemakers making good kitchen knives are welcome to have their own sub-forums here with the only requirement being participation of themselves within their sub-forum. We are not going to make galleries for makers, this costs money in storage disc space used. The goal is to build a community while supporting knifemakers the best we can but we have to strike a balance somewhere. I suspect that this will have to be addressed more and more as the forum grows in size.

Good to see you here, Bill. I heard I will see one of your knives up close very soon :) and will make a saya for it. Will have to match the horn with a tiger maple wood. Look forward to it. I am a big fan of your and Devin work, so this will be fun.
