Sindelfingen | September 2008.
Since September 2008 I have been an official member of the Deutsche Messermacher Gilde e.V. (DMG) [German Knife Makers Guild]
At the general assembly on the sidelines of the annual guild exhibition “Scharfe Sachen” (Sharp Things) in Sindelfingen, the general assembly unanimously approved my application for membership after three members of the guild vouched for me in advance and the quality committee had checked my work.
I was already able to take part in the exhibition as an exhibitor and introduce myself and my knives to the large audience.
Update: At the end of 2017 I ended my membership in the DMG for age and health reasons.
