Due to a series of unfortunate events

SASSY PINK LUUNCHBOX KNIFE MAKER
I am not going to be making knives for a while, I am going to try to build 1 or 2 a year but not sure when I will get the oppertunity to build one. I will be listing some of my equipment up for sale like the ht oven and nw grinder frame, and a few other things. Sorry if this is going to effect anyone on here. you all have been so great to me.


Thanks much for everything
Ernie

Wow Ernie! Seriously, don't sell what you don't have to.

If it helps maybe we can donate some knives to raffle off to keep you going. Don't know the situation man but you'll totally regret selling off good tools. This is a Community and I for one will pitch in to help my brother. I'll bet there's a bunch of others like me that'll do what they can.

BTW I have your Pass Around knife right now and I'll be sending it out Tuesday. Do you want it to stay in the pass around or come back to you?

Yes the knife can still stay in the pass around! That way everyone can get a chance to see it plus I still want the feedback.

Thanks for the offer but I am not looking for a charity, I am in the need for cash but not from others. I am selling the oven and a few other things to get some bills paid and to hopefully repair two vehicles.

Thanks

Do what you have to Ernie. I wasn't offering charity, I was offering a bit of friendship. You and everyone else on KnifeDogs is my friend. Whether you like it or not. LOL Hope you get it all straightened out sooner than later.

Sorry to hear you're going through this sort of season in life. A wise man takes care of his family and makes sacrifices to do so. I pray you get top dollar for your equipment so you can move through this season quickly!

Blessings Brother!

I'm sorry to hear this too Ernie. Only you know what has to be done but if you need the family to help out give us a chance to. Good equipment is hard to replace.
