    ----- That's awfully nice of you to say about a guy but what he says is true, ive met the people he has talked about. Its sad what happened to him and a shame he had to spend some time with you because you are obviously not such a nice guy.

    How much did he pay you to say this?. Or are you Mr Corkum himself?.

    Hes a great guy and a great father not to mention a fine craftsman. You have to realize that these guys are knife makers and dealers that took advantage of him when he got sick. I am his neighbor and met the people he speaks of, seen the scars and stood in fear thinking he was going to take his last breath on that hospital bed. Dont let them fool you my friend.

    Well, I guess it wouldn't be the first time that we saw this type of shenanigans.

    If you have current info wouldn't the right thing be to share it openly? Rather than having people contact you privately?

    I'm making this post as I believe Esav said to, when I emailed him earlier. If I'm mistaken correct me please and I will share all.

    On craigslist, York pa. search the word knife and you will see 4 Corkum knives for sale. If I'm correct they are presently, unless someone bought them at a very good friend of mine's store. If they belong to someone from an order, he would have no problem pulling them from sale online or in his store. I may also be able to get current address of Corkum.

    Well I finally made it to my buddies store and the knives were sold to him by Corkum. I checked the out and all were very small and extremely light but you could easily tell the ray skin was plastic and the nylon cord used to wrap the handle was crudley cut off and melted to get it into the knot. There were three daggers one drop point and a cleaver like knife with very poorly done kydex. I filled my friend in about Corkum but other customers were in the store so we could not talk alone. Oh yeah he also had a longer almost 14 inch kind of blade without the suba ? I'll see him again soon and hopefully get more info on where he's hiding out but I do know its still in Littlestown. He said Corkum claims the big one was the last he made.

    Mr.townsend, do you think that is more important to set the record straight about Corkum's personal life or the people he cheated out of their orders and money plus the horrible feeling of being cheated, if he was Ill we all understand that but why not communicate and make things right ????, you can understand that you are dealing with a lot upset people who give a rats...as who Steve truly is was or whatever happen, so before you get upset tell your body to set things right and you will find out that this community forgives those who clean up their acts.
