    Kit was one of the first knifemakers I ever had the pleasure of meeting. He had me out to his house & shop back in the mid 90's and introduced me to the belt & disk grinders with a piece of steel that I turned into dust. He showed me how a mill works and various WIPs. He answered all of my stupid questions and then some, and invited me down to his home more times than I can recall.

    Our world is missing a legend today. This is a loss for us all. RIP Kit. You were a good trooper, incredible knifemaker, and great man

    Just shocked. GigOne just called me and let me know.

    My condolences to his wonderful family and all of us fortunate enough to call Kit a friend. He is one of the finest people who has been in my life and will be dearly missed.

    My condolences to Betty and Kit's family.

    Missed, but never forgotten. RIP bud.
