    Very sad indeed :( What a great loss :(

    Posted this in the Lounge:

    Very sad news about Tony Bose, he always seemed such a nice feller :( I remember Paul Mason telling me several times how kind and helpful Tony had been, and I believe he was equally generous with many other knifemakers. What a wealth of knowledge we have lost. Sincere condolences to his family and friends, the knife world is a poorer place without him :(

    Since I had my stroke, Tony used to check on me every 4 weeks or so! I am going to miss his "cheeky" texts, and "Dad" jokes!! Bose portrait 1.jpg Bose portrait 2.jpg

    Deepest condolences to the Bose family and all those who knew him. I spoke with Mr Bose at both Blade ‘18 and ‘19 and he was very gracious with his time...he will be missed by all.

    Oh NO!! :(
    What a terrible blow to the traditional pocketknife world. He's shadow is huge and a giant vacuum now exists.
    My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    I never admired an individual so much that I never met. I never had the privilege to meet the Legend, but his work and passion will live forever. You meant the world to us, Tony, and you always will. RIP Mr. Bose. / will be carrying the Case Saddlehorn the rest of the week.
