    I too had many dealings with Derrick, I have a safe full to attest to that.... but, he always struck me as a stand up guy who genuinely cared for each and every customer he's had. We all followed his family goings on; the kids growing up, the moves, Wendy's medical travails, more moves.
    This is such a gut punch, never met him in person... but felt like I have. My deepest condolences to Wendy, his children, and rest of extended family and friends. Derrick, you will be deeply missed.

    Just received the email myself, I do 99% of my knife purchases through knivesshipfree, I was caught off guard by the email to say the least.

    Condolences to the family and friends during this time.

    May God be with the Bohn family and bless them during this difficult time, especially during the 900 mile move to Tennessee in just a few days.

    I will surely miss Derrick's videos, our e-mails and phone conversations.
    I look forward to continuing a business relationship with Wendy and their girls, while they carry on Derrick's legacy of KSF.

    May the Bohn family find peace in their shared memories, as a father and husband has been called home to heaven.

    Fair winds and following seas Mr. Bohn.


    Very Respectfully,
    -PA

    I had the chance to deal with him a couple of times when they were in Oregon. Very nice guy and very knowledgeable about knives.
    My sincere condolences to his family.

    Never dealt with KSF, but stumbled on their site while looking for ZT's. I've been going back and forth on getting their exclusive 0770CFM4, and after all my research, was looking forward to calling up Derrick and possibly ordering it.

    RIP

    In light of this tragic news, looks like I'll be ordering my first ZT from them.
