    It is my sad duty to inform you all that longtime member and friend to many on this forum, Esav Benyamin (Ed Hausman) passed away peacefully this morning. Ed was one of my closest friends thanks to BFC. We met on this forum and discovered we lived in the same town. We had close to 20 years of knife banter, diner trips, knife shows travels, and family gatherings. I'm so saddened by his passing because I know I will never meet anyone like him ever again.

    RIP Ed.

    I haven’t been around much in the last while, but logged on I guess just to see this. I’m feel for your loss! He was a great guy, we never conversed too much but I always respected when he did write back. The cripple club lost a great member today. Heart wrenching news.

    Damn, damn, DAMN. :(

    I had been wondering what he was up to for a while. Esav was the OG of the OGs. Shit, that’s terrible news.

    Rest easy, my friend. Prayers going out to all of his family and loved ones.
