    Does anyone know if Rob Hudson is still with us? A mutual friend in NJ asked me to look into that since I just moved to Rob's neck of the woods in New England.

    I'm assuming C. Robbin Hudson, Mastersmith, living in Rumney New Hampshire?

    I hope he is still healthy. I dunno.

    THere is a link to a page with his contact info.

    I want to ad Mr. Scottie H. White who passed away I think in 2006. I bought all of Scottie's equipment from his wife and can say he was as good a knife maker as there has been.

    Jim Nolen is on your list and he did indeed die in 1980. His brothers R.D and George Nolen both passed away in 2010. Lloyd Nolen was not a knife maker, that i know of, but famous in his own right.

    Here are some pictures of RD and Jim

    RD Nolen Obituary

    George Nolen Obituary

    Lloyd Nolen and brother's information and CAF website

    I am actively looking for any stories of the men or examples of Nolen Knives, especially those that are known to have been made by my grandfather Jimmy. Please join in the conversation below.
