    Walt Stockdale and John Freeman -- CKG members

    Stewart, Chuck Dec, 1995 -- the date would be in 1997 as I got a knife from him that August and had to send it for a repair and just got it back a couple weeks before he died.

    Montjoy, Claude 9-23-2012 -- oh oh, he must have arisen and will be buried again next month

    Eduard Bradichansky was an Israeli knifemaker who was just beginning to be known in this country. (He designed the "shabaria" for Spyderco.) He was killed by Hamas terrorists.
    I think this a wonderful thread. It should be made a sticky. Many of those mentioned were friends or people who were admired by many of us. They deserve to be always remembered.

    I was truly sorry to learn that Clestin is no longer with us. I hadn't heard. He and his wife were wonderful to deal with and his knives were truly unique.
