    I met Matt on the phone after we exchanged info due our both
    being recovering alcoholics. I wish I could have met him in person.
    RIP Charlie Mike.

    I searched for that video yesterday to repost here but couldn't find it on youtube. I had the same reaction as you when I watched it, just immediately liked him.

    A lot of people are speculating what happened to Matt. I just want to dispel some rumors. Matt fell in his house and hit his head.

    I don’t know the circumstances of the fall or why he fell but he fell in the house, not his shop and his passing had nothing to do with making knives.

    I didn't know him personally but ive been on here as long as him, felt like I knew him especially with his videos.Best one was a knife he had that was less than 4oz, he said nutnfancy didn't have to carbodize his penis. A real character. Ive even found myself driving to work or out and about and saying;'hey everybody CM here".Ill definitely miss his videos and input into the world of knives....

    Wow, crazy news, I am in shock. Only knew him through the forum, but I did have the honor of taking a piss next to him... seems kind of appropriate. I regret not saying anything to him. The guy was larger than life. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends.

    Oh man, that is awful news. Never met him or talked to him, but I always liked his posts and he was a very valuable member of the community.

    RIP and condolences to his family.

    We did some chats back and forth over the years. He traveled his own road his own way. Safe travels my brother.
