    Yes, he is. Not only is he cool, he is also very down to earth.

    My wife even thinks he is nice.
    That’s high praise because she normally keeps her thoughts and opinions to herself.

    For a knife maker / designer I'd have a beer with Chris Reeve

    For just someone known in the knife world I'd like to have a beer with Nick Shabazz

    I’ll bet a few drinks with Luke Swenson & Tom Ploppert would be a hoot....

    In the case of Nick, you would have to drink without facing each other.

    I'd be honored to have a beer with any custom maker registered on the Forum. Horsewright, of course, and all those I bought from. Great people !

    Lynn Thompson was the 1st person to pop into my head. That dude has to have a ton of stories and ideas. Second would be Shane Sibert.

    Lynn Thompson was the name that immediately popped in my head too. As for knife makers, I would be honored to have a drink with Andrew Demko, Surfgringo and Sal & Eric Glesser.

    That is a combination that I might enjoy.

    A&W is the best. Originally from Lodi, CA. A short drive from my home.

    Being almost regular to the SHOT shows in LV, I was fortunate enough to meet and share few words, sometimes discuss knife designs with most of the big names in the industry: Mr Sal Glesser, Phil Wilson, Gail Bradley, Jens Anso, Rick Hinderer, Brian Tighe, Joe Pardue, Mr Krudo, Brent Beshara and few more... I was shocked how much time spared for my questions both Allen Elishewitz and Neil Hogue.
    All of those gentlemen were extremely nice people to converse and I learned few things from meeting them.
    I meet the guy who used to run Mantis knives and didn't have very good experience. Meet with Mr Emerson, didn't feel comfortable not because of our short conversation but mostly because of his staff at the isle, they weren't very polite, appeared like they were guarding him from everyone that was not a celebrity, but this is understandable I guess, no hard feelings there, I love his designs...

    I would love to meet Mr Berenji and MR Marfione, there are so many more knife makers whom I admire, to name few: K.Lambert, Jake Hoback, Mr M. Walker and Bob Terzuola, Caleb White, Ray Laconico and so many more...

    With a maker it would be GL Drew or Dave Ferry. And for a production would be LT Wright.

    So many great responses. Thanks folks! While reading through the thread, I probably thought “Damn it why didn’t I think of them?” 30+ times..
