RIP Ron Nott

Dec 10, 1998
I didn't see anything posted about his passing so I figured that I would post something. I met Ron at the Shenandoah valley knife show about 6 years ago. Saw him at blade and other shows occasionally. He was a great engraved and a nice guy.

Thanks for posting, Chuck. I was unaware of Ron's passing.

Condolences to the family and close friends.

Ron's passing was posted on some of the engraving forums.

Very sad and shocking news. Ron was a great guy and was very generous with his time helping those interested in learning to engrave.

RIP Ron, and my condolences to family and friends.

That sad. I met him in NY this spring and was looking forward to working with him. Seemed like a real nice guy. Sad to hear that. My thoughts go to his family.
Thanks for posting this, Chuck.

Ugghhh. A heavy blow to my list of personal friends in the knifemaking world. I've known and met and worked with Ron for ten years or so.

For the upcoming premier BAKC show, Joe Kious chose to have Ron adorn a fantastic folder. It's a piece at the top of his form. I'm not allowed to show it yet (Catalog presentation) but you WILL see it. It's testimony of his skills.

More importantly was how clearly giving and humble he always was. A fine man indeed.

My prayers go to the family, and my thoughts go out to Ron. :thumbup:

I picked up a knife from Ron at the Blade Show, one of about a dozen he did for me. I was horrified to hear he was sick just weeks later; and now this. I'll really miss him. He and I shared a few interests and always had interesting conversations. RIP.
