Well, 2012 has nudged it's way into reality......here's hoping that 2012 brings with it all the best for all my friends here on Knifedogs! Looking back at 2011, it was a difficult year for a lot of knifemakers. The economy brought with it slowed sales, and many who were full time knifemakers, were forced into outside jobs. It was also a year where I think we saw many changes in what we do, and how we do it....mostly for the better. I'd like to thank every here at Knifedogs for keeping this a family friendly forum, and for the civility and respect that is always maintained here. May God Bless you and yours in this new year, and I hope to see many of you at shows and gatherings this year!
