Since Feb. of 1989 however long that is.
Holy Cow! I hadn't really thought about it until I saw this thread..... but it's been 34 years for me! I started "piddling" with making knives in 1982! Been really serious (selling them) since 1989. Now you guys have forced me to look in the mirror! Hey! There's an old man there! What in the world happened to that "kid", who used to be 10 feet tall and bulletproof? :what!at 53, I'm still 10 feet tall, but the big red "S" on my chest has faded to pink)
