Had the pleasure of meeting Christine Simonich for the first time at Blade. It was a shame she couldn't stay longer. I wanted to buy some knives but I knew she had to go and I didnt make it back to her table in time. What a classy lady. Very cool that she keeps this company going because they have some great blades. Based on the knives I handled I can see why they have such a high reputation for quality.:thumbup: Christine you will be getting an order soon!
