    Welcome to Se Ecglast!
    This company has sprouted from my passion for hand crafted kitchen knives. I’ve been cooking since I was 7 years old, when my parents put me on a step stool to cut onions and brown ground beef for chili. I’ve worked in a professional kitchen for a very short period, and while it wasn’t for me, I still hold a very deep passion for cooking and good food. A few years ago, I stumbled into high end kitchen knives. I was blown away with the first knife, and hadn’t even known what I was missing. Since then, I’ve stumbled down the rabbit hole even deeper, and I’ve taken new inspiration towards how I approach food. I hope to share with you my passion, and hope it inspires you in its own way.

    I will be focusing mainly on hand crafted knives from American makers. My goal isn't to take away from the makers custom orders, but offer a support system while offering knives to people that may not have a specific idea of what they want, or even what is possible.

    Thank you for taking the time to read, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

  3. How would that bit work? Would like an example.

    It will depend mainly on the maker and how much they can produce. While there are some makers that are backed up a couple years, there are some that still have open slots for orders. I'm talking to makers, figuring out what their schedule is like, seeing exactly what they can produce, and then paying up front for merchandise that may take them a while to make. So, while I may make a large order from one maker, they are free to work on it in bits and pieces, rather than dropping everything else to deal just with me.

    Talking with some makers already, work isn't always steady, and sometimes they don't have enough money to pay employees, bills, or even for tools and supplies needed. These guys aren't in this business to become rich, but are constantly learning and experimenting to become better at their passion. Along with providing a bit more of a buffer with finances, I am also learning how to make knives myself. Realistically, it's going to take me years before I can produce anything I think is fit to be sold.

    This is a pretty large gamble on my part, but it is something I believe strongly in. I hope this answers your question.
