Wow. I'm so glad I found this thread. I was looking around the Internet continuing to search for my next knife when I saw a number of Steve Corkum's knives on a reputable purveyor's site. I search for his knives and found that he has sold his name and designs to CRKT I believe (I lost my respect for them, they used to make very good very inexpensive knives and now they make overpriced crap) which raised my eyebrows, then I found a surprisingly large number of knifes available, far more than any other custom knife maker I've ever seen. That raised my eyebrows even more. Then I searched for reviews and found one reference to him being a thief, so I searched again and found this thread. Now I know why there are so many Steve Corkum knives available - there is a boycott going on. Thanks y'all.
