    Here is the Remington knife you are referring to right next to the Remington reblade Tony made for me. Pretty epic pair of you ask me. Like you, I love this pattern so much that I ended up with the Wilfred lockback hunter prototype from Tony. I’ve really enjoyed reading all these posts and hearing the stories of Tony’s generosity and impact he made on all of us

    Understatement of the year!

    I've been carrying a T. Bose backpocket all week, including today when I was out clearing some windfall, in honor of Mr. Bose. Rob and those who personally knew Tony have given us a picture of the type of man we could all aspire to be.

    My condolences to the Bose family and friends.
    I never met Tony, but it was on my to do list.
    I can see what type of man he was by the outpouring amount of love.
    RIP Tony

    F999A90F-1B33-444E-8393-7B58366CCB3F.jpeg What a way to find this out. I’m new to knife collecting. I’m just entering into leaving the knowledge gathering phase of our hobby so I’m researching a little, trying to find out more about the knives I have and organize my collection a little. During this activity, I’m researching Case knife tang stamps an I came across one with USA T.B.6.5210 SS. Hum, what does that mean? I found that T.B. was for “Tony Bose.” Not knowing who that is or anything about him, I began researching his name. What sad news I found! RIP Mr. Bose. What a legacy you have created. We are fortunate to have had you with us. You have truly given our world of knife collecting great gift.

    Vince ,you are so right , its been over a month later an the vacuum has just been taken out of me. I can’t hardly get in the spirit to go to my shop and do anything. But I know this loss to all of us is hard . Once I told Tony , I’m ready to quit, give it all up and he said to get your self back in your shop an keep trying . So i said to my self, yes I can do it an there will be no student of Tony’s who is a failure . So I give him all the Thanks for putting up with me all these years and having patience when i asked questions on why or how to do a particular job on a knife. My heart goes out to Reese and Karen.
