    I received sad news from Howie's brother, Ron. Howie passed away suddenly a few days ago. He will be sorely missed here.

    A few weeks ago we got news that Doug Webber had passed. Both were great gentlemen and avid Schrade collectors.

    I very much enjoyed seeing the posts of both of these fine men. I was fortunate enough to get to know Rich some. Great guy, honest and true. This news saddens me. May they both rest in peace. My condolences to their respective families.

    Thank you gentlemen. He was a big brother in all aspects of the word. He's terribly missed.

    Sorry to hear the news. Howie was always so polite in his answers or responses the few times we interacted.

    Condolences to family and friends.

    Codger any thoughts on a memorial thread to those who have passed? Several other forums I'm on have them.

    I just heard today of Doug Webber's passing. Doug and I got acquainted via our collecting of Aurum etched knives. We bought and sold knives to one another as well as did some trading. Doug had been ill for some time but recently got a new doctor and was positive about his prospects. Doug will be missed, we never met face to face (planned on meeting up at next years Blade Show) but through our phone conversations and emails I found him to be a solid guy and through my knife dealings with Doug, I found him to be honest and trustworthy. They don't get much better in the knife world than Doug. God Bless.

    I can hardly believe this news. Rich and I emailed at least every week and we talked a few times on the phone. Lots of laughs together and we kept each other in the know regarding knives for sale. He probably had more Herman Williams knives than anyone else unless maybe Doug Webber. He had just retired. If anyone can give me contact information for his brother I would very much appreciate that.
