Got to add him to my list.
Can't think of any that are living, anyway. Sorry.
What about Tony Bose?
Sal Glesser, Ed Schempp, Michael Janich, Jerry Busse, Ernest Emerson, Chris Reeve, Bill Howard.
Ethan Becker is the first name to come to mind.
Nathaniel carothers would be cool also.
I'm surprised no one's mentioned Ken Onion.
In Vahalla !
Lynn Thompson , Andrew Demko and the whole Cold Steel crew . Several kegs , minimum .
Nathan and Jo Carothers and Lorien
John Conner at Redmeadow
And what the hell...Lynn Thompson
Didn't list Colin Shannon, as I already had a couple drinks with him when he was still in MA.
Bob Dozier lives about 12 mile from here and he has been known to drink a beer or two .
-Dan keffler. (Spoke to once at blade show)
-Brad Stallsmith from PHT. (Spoken to a few times and twice at blade)
@DeadboxHero , because having a beer with him and benchracing about steel and knives would be great. I've actually spoken to him on the phone a few times.
@Mecha because I only met him at blade 2018 a handful of times. Definitely would love to have more large blade and TI blade conversations with him.
Yup, Lynn Thompson!
The dude's got some ideas that's for sure.
I have had the privilege of sharing a drink with many knifemakers over the years at BLADE, both in the Pit and at the Cobb restaurants. Last BLADE was pretty darn funny as a group of us were sitting at the restaurant outside Cobb, Jason Knight was sitting at a nearby table directly in my line of sight/fire. Keep in mind I hadn’t seen Jason in several years and wasn’t sure if he would even remember lil’ ol me. Started launching French fries at him until he turned around and saw me. Later that night, was in the Pit sitting with a few knife nuts, Uncle Bill (Harsey) comes over with a bottle of Michter’s. Libations were poured and friendships renewed! It was a good night.
Of all the knifemakers I would have liked to have had a drink with, Rob Simonich tops the list. Met him once, a true gentleman cowboy. Unfortunately the world lost him on Thanksgiving 2003…much too soon.
Not because I necessarily love their knives, but because I think I could get along with them.
The Glessers would be very interesting, as well as Reeve and... All the others mentioned already.
Dave Ferry because I always wanted to be a cowboy, Lynn Thompson because he likes firearms and knives, Chip Valtakis because he seems like a cool guy.
Sal and Eric Glesser, their depth of knowledge of the industry as a whole would make a conversation a full education.
Lynn Thompson. Come on you'd get to tear some shit up with crazy uncle Lynn it would be epic.
Ethan Becker, I like his designs and have always like watching interviews with him.
Ken Onion, I have a feeling he would be like a younger version of LT, just slightly mellower.
Chad Los Banos, I feel like I know him already from his early years on forums. He has some cool designs and always struck me as a working man who happens to designs knives too.
Jimmy Lile, always liked his knives. spoke to someone at his shop years ago about getting a Death wind model made but I didnt follow through. Its a grail I'll have to chase on the secondary market now.
