    Been there, done that - was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma back in '95. Immunotherapy wasn't fun, but it's supposedly not as bad as chemotherapy. Best of luck to you, may your scans continue to be clear.

    I have a slightly different way than some, I don't believe in luck, the way I was taught you claim victory over it. So in that way I'll say, congratulations on beating the snot outta melanoma :thumbsup: looking forward to your post reporting free and clear :thumbsup:

    I don't own a knife with better action. Fit & finish is superb, too. The cutlers of the day were truly masters of their craft.

    Thank you for the compliment. I'm not sure what Mike is up to these days. He was on the list to attend a recent show in January but he wasn't there. A couple members of the club that sponsors the show told me that he hasn't attended a club meeting since early 2019. I too hope he is doing well and still making knives.
