The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Frank Gamble's daughter, Stacey. There are many makers and collectors I've met, certainly many that knew him and are familiar with his work.
Unfortunately, my parents have both passed on now. This leaves me with a huge amount of stuff. Primarily, I would like to find homes for books and magazines on knifemaking and collecting that go back to when my dad started, in the 70's.
There are also supplies and knives- a great deal of which I would keep, or trade, as I'm a collector myself.
I will post things as it comes up- but if you are looking for any specific issue of Knife Didest or what have you, please feel free to ask! I have it.
I'm also hoping people can be helpful in identifying things, particularly some materials. I will be greatly interested to hear about some of these items.
As always, it's great to meet you. Knifemakers and collectors are some of the finest people I've ever met. I was truly lucky to grow up in this world. Some kids get to go to the office with dad- I got the shop and knife shows.
I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Stacey, post away! We are always happy to help identify items. I would also suggest you let Tommy Clark over at BlueRidge take a look. He may have some buyers for you and he can certainly identify anything you may have
