    Truly shocking news today. Prayers to his family, friends and the whole KSF crew. Derrick and KSF were my 1st entry into the knife world. Derrick and I chatted often about knives and BBQ. He will be missed greatly...

    Vance is right. Just saw it on his daughters Facebook. I did not know him very well - but he was nice to me and great for the industry.

    Prayers for his family. I always try and buy from KSF before going anywhere else. I also subscribe to his youtube channel, and enjoy all his Bark River update videos. Even though I never met him, I feel like I know him from watching his videos and buying from him through all the years. My heart is broken for his family.

    God Bless & RIP Derrick.
