I have this problem, I am a knife nerd. I have literally a hundred carbon steel chefs knives, some of them I put new handles on and they go into my wrap others I buy and they aren't quite what I wanted. I tried ebay but i don't want to sell to strangers. I want to sell these tools to young chefs who otherwise would not be able to afford such a knife. The other thing is knives are personal and need to be tested before buying. I own a restaurant in Brooklyn with a kitchen as you need to test a few before you choose. I'm an old chef and restaurateur, it's not about the money, I bought them over the years not paying much and I'll cost the knife when I meet the chef means based. Its about giving back a bit to the trade that's supported me, I won't ship and even if that weren't the case I wouldn't break the rules of this site either so no personal messages, Is there a local NYC chef site of a place where young chefs BS . I want to see a young talented commis put that f dick, henkels or sabatier back where it should be. Not in some Yuppies kitchen draw. Help me out guys with a forum to meet chefs who need tools and need a break and I can maybe help with a antique knife that will last a professional chef his entire working life. Looks like a scam but at 53 just trying to help.
