Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me be the first to welcome Steve Schwarzer to the moderation panel for the Knife Network custom knife forums team.

I was able to speak to Steve in Atlanta and have been holding this announcement back since then. If you have an appreciation for fine Damascus steel and want to learn all about it, Steve Schwarzer is your man!

Welcome aboard, Steve!

The american knife maker drives the world market on knives . We are the cutting edge because we freely share information that improves the craft for every body involved. My time is limited but I will try to answer any questions you may have on pattern development and Damascus steel in any form. I am new to working a forum so if I dont get up to speed right away please be patient

What an honor to have the "King" of Mosaic here with us! I'm here to thank Steve for all his efforts in damascus steel, and for bringing us into the the "Mosaic Age". I'm glad we have such a talented damascus man here! You can bet I'll be keeping a close eye on this forum!
Welcome Steve!

A big welcome to the Knife Network! (I'm still trying to get used to not saying "CKDForums").

It was a pleasure meeting you at Blade (I was the guy bending your ear about the Forums when Alex and Darrel walked over). It is indeed an honor to have yet another master of your caliber in our midst. I know I'll be spending time here gleaning some of your sage advice!

While talking with you at Blade, we were discussing the business end of the knife industry and you mentioned how you thought you'd been taking it a little too easy with your own marketing...and how you were going to start getting more aggressive. When you told me "the blinders are coming off" weren't kidding! This is a great place to come out fighting and as moderator of this forum I'm sure you'll do just Spades!

So glad to have you here!!!

Yeah Baby! :smokin

Good news indeed! I'm not a maker but I have had the pleasure of getting to know Steve Schwarzer over the past year or so. In addition to his enormous talent, he is a terrific teacher. I've sat in on a couple of his damascus demonstrations at ABS hammer-ins; learned a lot myself but also noted the intense interest Steve stimulates in his audience. He's a very funny guy too - don't get him started on wrasslin' gators though! Here's a picture of Steve during a damascus demonstration at the Batson Symposium in Alabama this past April. That's my wife, Laura assisting during the demo.

If you haven't visited Steve's website, you should. Here's the link: Check out the "My Other Adventures" page. That little cannon of his looks like outrageous fun!

Laura and I are fortunate to own a couple of Steve's fantastic folders. You can see one of them at this link: Unless there is an objection, maybe I should start a thread with an image of each knife and see if those who frequent this forum would like to have Steve discuss aspects of his technique and/or answer questions.
