Knife Website In The Spotlight- DKnifePlace.com

cnjspotlight111508bIn the CNJ Featured Knife Website Series we introduce a collector’s site from a non-technical point of view. 

Today we are featuring DKnifePlace.com

The minute you hit this site you will be impressed by the high quality professional photographs. The focus of the page is clearly on Knife Maker’s Hall of Fame member, Mr. D’Alton Holder’s knives. 

Scroll down and you will be presented several more examples of D’Holder’s craftsmanship. The images are large and quite impressive.

There is a lot of white space- further emphasizing the knives. Then further down the page, Del Anderson explains his interest in these knives and reason for building the site.

One of the features I like is his Site Map. It is helpful to give the visitor an idea of the scope of the site. He also has a “What’s New” icon right at the top of the homepage.

Very appropriately, Del built a page dedicated to Mr. Holder and it serves as a pictorial history of the knife maker going back over 25 years. Del also offers a Gallery of the knives he owns that are rotated every month or so.

If you are a custom collector or into D’Holder’s knives, then check out this site. You will notice your attention remains where it should be- on the knives- not the layout of the website.

Del shared with me his orginal motivation to build the site was simply to share his knives with others. Del said, “I’ve met many folks through this and have met a lot in person- it’s great!”

When you can stop by and say “Hello” to Del and thank him for sharing his passion with us.
