    Sorry for the lack of updates here from my part! As im still a parttime maker i have struggled to find time over the summer, i need more than 24hours a day :D The good news (atleast for me) is that im taking time of my regular dayjob to make more knives during the coming 6 months!
    My Europe passaround has had some delays but it’s now on the homestretch!
    Even though it’s nervous and scary to send out a knife to be judged like that, i highly recommend it to new makers! It is a eyeopener and a good way to point you in the right direction:) It can be hard to know what makes a good chefknife in the beginning, i know i didn’t have a clue but i have got some seriously good feedback that have helped me progress a lot over the past months!
    I am now getting ready to start a passaround here in Sweden and the international passaround will start within a couple of weeks, i will announce it here as soon as the knife intended is ready!
    Im also working on a new website to make it easier to purchase my knives, all available knives will end up there.
    So even though im quiet i’ve got lots of things going on
    Thanks for your time! :)

    Kind regards
    Jonas

    Nice one!

    BTW, I have been watching you here on KKF, but recently someone from Olofström-area contacted me and asked if I knew you... Will probably be in Olofström this coming week...
