Thanks to all for the help and information. Just to be clear - neither my questions here on this forum nor my trip to India is predicated on promoting any products. I'm simply interested in learning more about individual craftsmen and their methods during my stay in India. I also own a farm in Kansas. If I can't find a knife maker in Hyderabad I'll spend my free time learning about agricultural practices in India. Now please don't tell me that crops aren't grown in the region! :)


You must make an appointment with the State Agricultural University in Attapur, Hyderabad. You'll love it

Thanks to all and would be happy to receive the perspective of knife makers and enthusiasts in India by meeting or other means when I am in India. I will be in Hyderabad on unrelated business (unrelated to the knife business) the last week of February and then to Goa for the weekend and then back to Hyderabad for a few days. I hope that Mr. Supershaji's contact works out because that's the best opportunity presented to date.

I have been somewhat surprised by some bits and pieces I've picked up while researching this topic. I ran across a post asking " where can I purchase a pocket knife in Hyderabad?" This was my first clue that things might be somewhat different in India than here because pocket knives are as common here as tea is in China (and India as well as I understand) so learning something about regulations and practices regarding knives in India would be enlightening.

I'll direct message you his contacts and you could start to correspond right away. I'll give him a heads up too.

Cheers

To: Pistolero and Supershaji - I can read your PM's but can't figure out how to reply. When I try to reply I get the following message:

"We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more in discussions to be able to use this feature."

Perhaps I'm simply not smart enough to figure out how to use this particular forum software platform. My direct email is [email protected] so please feel free to use that means of contacting me.
