James, I tried to do this post:
"I agree with James, we don't need to be bashing someone else....but patting ourselves on the back is good. There are a lot of good thoughts on this thread and hopefully it will encourage new members, new knife makers, the old guys and the ones that have information that they have been reluctant to share.
Thanks guys for your input and thanks James for your leadership and forethought."
I was just told that my message was to long so it is broken into two messages.
