Sorry to hear that, Jim. I enjoyed doing a bit of business with you a couple of years ago and ended up with an outstanding knife I’m still carrying. I can emphasize with the condition though. Getting old sux.
Does this mean I now have a collectible knife?

Stayed away for a few days and missed the news! As artistic as you are I know you will find a new passion to express yourself in. When I won your raffle was a very happy day for me. Everyone that has seen and held your blade has been impressed at the looks and balance it has. I purchased a skinner some time before from you and my son in law was proud to receive it. Thanks for sharing your art. Your work will undoubtedly live longer than any of us.

Sad to hear about you closing up; but perhaps as another member mentioned another door is being opened for you. Maybe you will get to pass your skills and passion on to others as a teacher or mentor in this new chapter of life. Best wishes!
I’m sorry to hear this. Your work is excellent. I’ve got a couple of your blades and use them regularly. I hate that I won’t be able to get any more, but what is most important is that you do what is best for you. Plenty of better things to use those hands for than shaping steel. My family struggles with RA, so I quite literally feel your pain. Go enjoy life. You got people out there who care and want the best for you, even if they never met you in person. Good luck and I truly hope you find something even more rewarding to turn your attention to.
Change is inevitable. Embrace your future. You're an artisan and a tool maker. The knives you've made are but part of your legacy. I am fortunate to have a couple of your beautiful, yet 100% functional bladed creations. God Bless and Thank You!
Like guns, Love Sigs

I'm so sorry about this! I gave your knife to my niece as a wedding present and she loves it!
God's blessings and joy to you!!

'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'
