..... that just 2 months ago we were striving hard just to hit 10,000!

I'll tell you the God's honest truth: I used to be hopeful that the Knife Magazines would give us some favorable ink to help us along.

Now we're growing so fast, I hope that they hold off at least until we get our own server!

Another Milestone passed, another hurdle leapt, thanks to you all for helping support us!

We are without a doubt the busiest knife related website in the world, and without the constant good content, questions, answers and discussions, we'd never have gotten anywhere near as far as fast as we have. Give yourselves all a pat on the back, folks, you've done good.

Give us a pat? Why don't you give yourself a pat? Without you and Mike we wouldn't have anywhere to pat ourseleves.

Spark, I gotta say that I feel like we owe you for this site, since I have learned so much, just reading and participating. It's been great.
Great Job Spark! The folks at EDI appreciate your hard work,....we know Mike had nothing to do with it :^}.

Thanks for a great site for us knife nuts. I have to thank all of the experienced makers for the help and advice they have given me. Great members are only a small part of what makes a site like this successful. The people like Spark and Mike are the big reason for the success.
Thanks again for a great site.

Spark, Mike,

Great work. You've helped make the world a smaller place. Because of this place I now have friends all over the world.

Thanks(from even further away Bob
