    I would have to agree, his leather work is top notch, packing on purchases well is an adventure in how it should be done, communication perfect and all in all always a pleasure!:)

    My praise of Gary starts with his sterling character. He’s one of the most honest people I know, as well as the most likable. He’s kind of like an Eagle Scout. The next reason to praise him is that not only do you get a knife or a gadget, but he is knowledgeable about the item he is selling. Through his knowledge, pickiness, and professional skill set, he will make the knife better, sharper, and smoother then when it came from the factory. Not to mention his custom slip cases and beads. I know this, because I have started a small collection(lol) of his knives. He also has fixed and sharpened some older cherished knives that needed rescuing. Finally, you always get a custom package that is easy to open.

    Gary doesn't screw up the important things, but his profile picture's a little dated :)

    I have it on good authority that @Gary W. Graley has an extreme hatred of children who eat Tootsie Rolls. In those instances when faced with an underaged Tootsie Roll consumer he's been known to shout at them, claiming the superiority of Bit-O-Honey as justification. Sometimes he even goes so far as to empty a can of hairspray into the air; an act of unbridled hatred toward the young Tootsie Roll enthusiast. Further cementing the climate challenges that await them in the future.

    Other than that insane behavior though he does seem to be a genuinely good dude and an asset to the forums for sure. :D

    The man has an entire thread named after him. The rest of us can only aspire :rolleyes:

    To be fair, the TR issues arose when he found melted TR(s) in the leather seats of his Bentley after an otherwise great day at the ball field with his grandkids and 3 of their friends. We mere mortals would be similarly incensed.
    Just sayin' ;)

    Tell me about it, and the Bentley dealership are not the most understanding folks to work with, very frustrating to say the least, the stain is almost all gone, but the lingering sweet smell of TR still remains to this day, sad really ;)

    (all in jest of course, the Bentley is fine, well, the one in my imagination at least, in real life the Sonata is a bit dated and lightly stained)
