    While I've only got the hood rat knife I kind of wish Matt would have signed the knife with his signature. I am glad to have something his hands touched as well as his awesome CM Carry sheath design that he sent me with the hood rat. Thanks my friend you will be missed.

    While I don't have anything Matt made, he is the primary inspiration in the way a often carry a medium size fixed blade.

    CM Style!

    Okay, not exactly the same. There is no cant. I carry concealed. The knives aren't huge. And it is left side opposite my firearm. Kydex, inverted, and edge out draw though. CM inspired me to carry a fixed every day with his system. He and his unique creativity will be missed.


    All of these are permanently set up for CM carry:

    I wish that I would've kept this knife. I sent Matt a design, and he made it for me.

    I feel so sad and weary. It took me days to just be able to write about it. Charlie was a guy of talent and commitment. And he was light about it... A great person. And he liked cats. An outstanding person. If I ever was to go to the US, it would have been a priority to visit him. Too slow, too late, old man. So be it. RIP Charlie, I liked you. And you are sorely missed.

    Very glad to have you all here to post these knives and memories.
    Disappointed I found out so late, and that I didn't take him up on the custom he offered me.

    Hey Mhedrick17!
    Sorry bud, I just saw this...

    It's not very likely, uhm, actually, not ever is most likely!
    This ones going with me...
    But, it never hurts to ask!
    It is a great knife, the sheath was unexpected too, I thought it would be kydex...

    Damn, I miss the guy...
    A small consolation is that I did tell him how much I love this knife, a few times...
    I made sure to send him a short vid of me cracking one of them fake beers with it!!

    Well, nice to e-meet you MH17, my names Randy, but they call me Sixx...
    Take it easy bud!

    I'm with you Skyhorse the same here. I used to love seeing what he would come up with next. He really had some great design ideas. He'll be missed, RIP Brother.
