All the content on this website—except, obviously, third party discussions—is written and edited by KitchenKnifeGuru (aka Nate Ouderkirk).
He generates income as an affiliate marketer for many, but not all, of the products he recommends on this site. Many of them he has used personally. Those he has not used himself he has researched enough that if he had a viable need for the product or enough disposable income to buy it, he would be a paying customer. Either way, he will always try to let you know whether or not he has personal experience with a product. (Please note: It does not cost the shopper extra to use an affiliate link.)
Call him old-fashioned, but he is a big believer in the Golden Rule. Thus, he continually strives to treat his website visitors with the honesty and integrity he would like to be treated with. He will never make a claim for a product he does not think is true, and if he has doubts or mixed feelings, he’ll let you know.
The views and opinions on this site are purely his own, unless he specifically notes otherwise—for example, if he’s quoting an expert bladesmith or something. He is definitely not the mouthpiece or minion of a larger silent highly-capitalized corporate entity. He is who he says he is and nothing more, nothing less.
That said—any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or party in question.
