    Professional Courtesy


    ADVERTISEMENT
    You all know that I got myself in a bit of hot water recently, by using an image that I didn't create, on my website. Here is the other side of that.

    I have been contacted by a fellow knifemaker, who quoted me on his website, and felt it was important to let me know. This gentleman took the time to ask my permission to use my words.

    I am deeply flattered that one of my competitors quoted me, and also very pleased that he credited my statement in private.

    THAT, my friends, is professional courtesy.

    That's cool, Mr T.

    I like to think of other knifemakers as "collegues" rather than "competitors". Unless you are refering to a production company?.... they are the devil. Ha!

    Professional courtesy or courtesy in general is not a lost art as some believe; its only a matter of taking the time to exercise one of the basic tenets of human interaction.

    Very cool, James I'm with Fred and Rick.....courtesy is not dead even though it seems so at times, and I also consider other makers colleagues, not competitors. I've been treated way too well by other makers to ever consider them competitors........unless they're just trying to keep their enemy close
