It was reported in an article in the issue of Knives Illustrated that arrived here today that I am a knifemaker in demand.

The thing that hit me most about it, is it also said that am an internet made knifemaker. My demand is driven my the internet forums, was the jist of one of the points, although worded better.....

I Agree 100%! :) While I believe that I could make it without the internet, I don't want to try it! What I want to do is thank everyone that has bought a knife from me, posted in one of my threads, or just been kind enough not to point out my many short comings as a knifemaker.

Thank you all for your support, thanks to Les Robertson for the mention in the article!

Respectfully submitted,
Les

Congratulations on the much deserved recognition Les. I always enjoy following your work and reading your progress threads. I think many of us hope to one day enjoy the same recognition which you have worked so diligently to earn. Keep up the great work!

This tread aint about me, it's about you guys! Being a famous knifemaker is like being a famous bowler, except bowlers get trophies! :)

Steve,
I think this is the perfect trophy for Les.

Yes Les, It is a monkey skull, and NO, it's not one of my relatives.

You are the rockstar bud , I just did what I felt was needed to lift a friend's spirits and to help honor a young hero who left us all too soon.
