I don’t know for sure,

But seems like he posted on FB he’s slowed down a lot.. maybe health issues to blame.


I met David once at his shop to pick up some knives.

Really nice guy..

Asked him about Gene , he told the story...

Asked him about Charlie...

He laughed, said its according to who you ask who taught who...

🤣😂🤣

I know that I'm glad to have picked up one of Gene's 'small boner's when I had the chance...

Holy [bleep], that is beautiful!

I have a picture somewhere with Gene's tapered tangs lined up with Herron, Denning, Menefee and Loveless tapered tangs.

Will post it if I can find it...but, bottom line is Gene has MAD freaking skills!!

If you ever want to trip that knife please PM me!!!

Journeyman,
Thanks, but not likely I will flip as it's part of a set.
