    Incredibly sad news. Kenny was enthusiastic and unfiltered, his rants generally made me chuckle. I’ll miss his Knife Collecting is War mantra. RIP Kenny!

    Anyone with that kind of zeal for life invariably leaves holes behind when they pass away. Praying for family and friends. I love how he spoke so freely about his passions.

    That is very sad news to hear. I really enjoyed his rants, but mainly his enthusiasm for knives. He made me excited about knives through his posts. I know at times he would go off the wall a bit, but his enthusiasm was undeniable. That enthusiasm is what the porch is all about. He will certainly be missed around here. I hope we can all learn to be more accepting of others flaws, and welcome them with open arms. We are all here for the same reason, but our differences is what makes this place special. RIP Kenny!

    That's a shame. Too many knife gurus modern, traditional, or what have you are slipping by the wayside this past year. Smoke up for Kenny's family and friends.

    This is terrible to hear. I was awaiting his eventual return to the forum.

    Genuine enthusiasm for the hobby and a lot of passion.

    Very sad news and I have missed him and will miss him! His enthusiasm never offended me and I always tried to support him. He was so passionate about GEC collecting. You said it so well! Accept others as they are. He was a good man. Rest in peace, brother and "Break in through to the other side."

    I really liked @Onearmbladenut and his enthusiasm and sense of humor.

    He had a great eye for quality and he knew GEC was the real thing.

    I am sad he has passed, and I regret I did not know him better.

    He had more zest for life in his one good arm than most of us have in our whole bodies.

    I hope thumbholes and thumbstuds are allowed in heaven.

    We will honor his memory every time someone admits that GEC knife collecting is WAR! Haha, that is a funny saying.

    Whenever Kenny described having to open knives with his knees, it always made me reflect on the things we take for granted.

    Knife collecting is War...RIP, buddy

    Thanks for the news Mike, and like many other have already said, he will be missed. I have to say, every time he talked about how he opened his knives with his feet, I would try to picture that, I even tried to do it myself once, and almost cut myself! Here’s to your memory Kenny may you rest in piece. :(
