    If you have been around for any decent length of time or looked through any of the Pics Only threads, you have likely come across a member with the username stjames. (Out of respect for his family, I will refrain from posting his full name)
    He was one of the most senior members I ran across on this forum as well as in this particular subforum when I first joined. James was always an eager member to welcome new members as well as share a phenomenal collection of beautiful knives.
    It's with great sadness that we learn of his passing, albeit nearly two years ago.

    RIP James, you have been an inspiration to many and a mentor to the community; You will be dearly missed! :(

    I remember when I was new to collecting, and how much his pics had me in awe. Like so many others, I was inspired to take my collecting to the next level. The day he told me he was enjoying my collection immensely was a proud day for me, because he was so respected. He's truly missed, may he RIP.

    Thank you, James, for sharing with us all.

    St James was a major influence on my CR collecting. When I joined BF and spotted this picture, it blew my mind! (picture by Mike Van Grouw, I hope he will forgive me for posting it here!)

    This was in the early days of the internet for me..... I had one CRK.
    As my collection grew, St James was always generous with his praise and most helpful with his knowledge. I miss him! RIP St James!

    I always appreciated his enormous knowledge about vintage CRK. For sure he was a beloved husband, father, brother, ..... for his family their loss is so much bigger than I would be able to express with my words.

    He had all the good stuff and was very active when I started. He still pops up with the answers when I do searches-so in that way he will forever be with us.

    It's a shame really, to find out two years later? Alas, in the connected world of today's internet, we are really disconnected with the human side.
    R.I.P. StJames.
