Drew -

I don't know how google works enough to say this with absolution, but:

I think it would result in more hits and would also protect the name. Someone does a Google search for "chef's knife forum" and it might pop up with www.chefsknifeforums.com before it did www.chefknivestogoforum.com. If someone else owned that domain name, it would result in less traffic to your site.

In fact, when you go to a site like GoDaddy and search for a domain name like www.chefknivestogo.com it pops up with optional alternates to add to your order that are variations on this.

BTW, looks like Mark has already bought my suggestion. Do I get a cookie? :)

Awesome!! I LOVE cookies.

Unfortunately, Eamon was the first to suggest it...so he gets the cookie this time. Maybe he'll share. :D

I hope you know that I am now expecting an actual cookie.

You likely get beef jerky, or toothpaste. :)

Our office is next door to a dentist and they gave us a pile of 1oz toothpastes last winter so Sue gave them out to some customers as a free gift.

There were rumors that some people tried stropping with it but those were unconfirmed reports. :)
