Please allow me to thank you all for your support and encouragement! Not just knives purchased, but friendships made and lessons learned. The camaraderie and wealth of knowledge on BladeForums is without parallel. Without it, I would not know half of what I do about making knives, and I surely could not do what I truly love for a living. I've met - and learned from - some of the finest and most fascinating people in my entire life directly through this forum. Those relationships and experiences have a far greater value than any chunk of steel or any mere skill. May you all enjoy peace and plenty this Holiday Season, and spend it with loved ones. Even though they may be oceans away, know that they are with you.
