...And we want to thank everyone here for making it possible!

I am a lucky guy, this is all I do... make knives! I was fortunate to have a backlog from day one and Bladeforums has been the place most for it all. The support here has been unbelievable and I want to thank everyone for making it possible!

It's a family business with my wife Sara making leather sheaths, doing the mailing, paperwork and more. We are dedicated 100% to making the best knives possible and that is all we do... thanks everyone! Knives are our only source of income and I'm happy that everyone has had our back. We have yours too!

We are here to stay and motivated as can be, look out! Thanks!

Good luck, and may the income be stable, the orders constant, and the customers pleasant!

Hopefully you will really enjoy it, and never "work" again!

Congratulations. You should celebrate by giving me one of your new folders. Or maybe just a reduced price? :) Just a thought....seriously, congratulations. I like your work.

Daniel, you forgot one very important other product along the DFK line . . . . Sally T just wanted me to remind you that you also make some of the finest "pink" paracord bracelets out on the market too . . . . :D
Just a small reminder and a bigger thank you for all you have done for her and for all the kinds words as well . . . . :)
Best of luck to you and Sara for years to come . . . . . :thumbup:
Be safe.
