I just got this pro photo back from Coop of my recent gambler's bowie.
You, Sir, are the consummate craftsman. I love your work and am always waiting for the next photo. I've saved more photos of your work than any other's and am accumulating ideas for knives I may make in the future.
I'm a new "wannabie", so it's not likely I'll soon/ever make knives at the level you do (heck, skills like yours take a lifetime and my lifetime is in it's "winter" years) but hope someday to have a beauty like that one on my hip. I'm just thankful there are craftsmen such as yourself in this world to offer "carrots" to wannabees like myself.
