My friends at Precision Graphics in Black Mountain have excelled at everything I've asked of them, from printing, to laser etching steel and leather, to embroidery, to t-shirts. I don't know what I'd do without them.

Thanks to Dr Larrin Thomas at Knife Steel Nerds s  for his endless research, testing, and technical writings, and for his stellar book "KNIFE ENGINEERING". I have learned so much from his writings and the generous sharing of his findings.
