Hey everyone! I just stumble on this forum, and I am glad I did! I am enjoying looking around, and I thought I would introduce myself (I hope this is the right place to do so, if not I apologize). My name is Ben Tendick, and I am a part time custom knifemaker. I have been making knives for a couple years now, but just over the last year I have gotten serious about making kitchen knives. I still have a lot to learn, and this looks like a great place to do so! Here are a few pics of my work, I would love to hear any and all comments!

BEN <> I really love the look of the finish on the blade in the first photo, but that last one... way cool effect.. way cool. Image

I reckon that would look incredible on a 240 Gyuto. Incredible.

Hi Ben,

Cool knives!

Would you be interested in a free sub-forum? You can post your new knife pictures and answer questions there.
