• Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to all of you! Thanks for your continued support and I hope that your holiday season is a blessed one.


Rob, congrats!! Can't wait to get my talonite Cetan from you this fall and start using it in the field!
WOW, thanks guys! I didnt know that there would be this many replies in just a few hours! Thanks for all the support. This is truly a great place. Only three more get ups............

Congratulations, Rob. I suppose this means you'll have a lot more time to make all those knives we've ordered, and my "wait, wait, wait" might not be so long after all.

Big Grin!!

Oh boy, oh boy!!!

It sounds like our Talonite kitchen equipment will be arriving that much faster!

Rob, good luck on your life choice. You have the admiration and envy of all of us!

Gongrats! I guess I better step in line and get my knife ordered. Good luck! Looks like you are off to a great start.
Congrats Rob!! Best of luck! You'll be getting more of my money soon enough.

Have fun and take care,
Congratulations, Rob, and good luck on a big decision!

I look forward to being financially able to order a Cetan or Wambli in the near future!

Congrats Rob!

Now get that drawing to me ASAP!

Looking forward to adding one of your pieces to the collection as soon as you are able.

All best,


Live Free or Die

Best of luck Rob!
I hope you don't get so busy you lose touch with us!


Great! Go for it my blade brother! I hope I can soon visit you in your shop. Are you going to Montana Knifemakers show? I live in S.E. Idaho and hopefully not far from you. I am mulling over the talonite but also have some blades for you to heat-treat. Congratulations!

Rob, I wish you the best in your new adventures.


2 more to go! Thanks for all the kind words, prayers and encouragement. I will not be attending the Montana Show, I happen to be getting married that day! I will be far away and not thinking about knives at that time!
So wait wait wait, yup Ill get that drawing done Blues, Kit, quit shooting at me, or at least use a HEAT round,
And wont be long there Chefget.

MARRIED?! And here I thought things were going well.

Good luck! You'll need it! Hehe.
All right Rob. Thats great to hear. Hope you have tons of fun filling the shop with metal dust all day long.

I'm sorry I took so long to post to this thread... it's been hectic around here.

I certainly want to convey publicly what I've expressed privately... all my best! I have no doubts that you'll be successful. And with Christine and Megan there to keep you on the straight and narrow, you have built in insurance

So much has happened in the last year, not the least of which has been Talonite. With its growing acceptance as a viable super blade material, your distributorship will augment your growing customer order book. I congratulate you not only on your insightful business prowess but on your upcoming marriage. I haven't had the pleasure, but Christine sure sounds like a treasure when I've talked to her on the phone.

I think we all look forward to great things from you in the future. And without question, we wish you and your family only the very best in the months and years to come. I know that I personally have found not only an outstanding maker to deal with but a friend whose humor never fails to shine a little Montana sunshine on even the most drab of days.

On the 28th, if you're not hoisting a couple of fingers of some good stuff, we'll need to talk
Cheers Rob! Cheers!
