    Met him briefly years ago at BLADE. Took time to answer my questions & briefly talked about knives. Very sad news, he was a legend in the knife community.

    A loss of a friend and a legend. Among other things, he did so much for fellow knife makers and keeping the flame alive for traditional knives.
