Alright so fellow chefs i could use your advice about something...
I have a deep passion for Japanese knives and that has led me to making my own handles and playing with metal finishes etc. Granted im still learning as i go, im doing decent so far as Ive worked with wood and metal my whole life so its coming naturally.
My question is, you as my fellow chefs, what would you guys pay for stupid things like say a well done plating spatula with a nice wooden handle instead of the run of the mill crap everyone has? Example:
I understand most want just something they could throw around, but there has to be that niche group like there is in every craft that just wants something different than everyone else, that's who im catering towards.
Even if you yourself would not be a buyer, i would love to hear of ideas as far as pricing and what kinds of things the high end chef community would actually purchase AND use as a custom product.
Disclaimer : I am in no way shape or form trying to promote my business, really just looking for honest advice as i would love to get into the knife industry some how
