Is There Still A NKCA?

Sounds to me like someone has taken the NKCA money and run.  I have been and I know other NKCA members have been trying to get in touch with this Lisa Sebenick (Davis, Boyles).  To no avail.  I have some possible leads and have called her grandson.…Continue

Like several of you, I am still trying to get the youth knives that I ordered and paid for through Pay Pal in April, 2014. We had to order these knives in advance of delivery, so since Pay Pal only gives a limited time to get your money returned, of…Continue

Dear NKCA members,

I believe that it is time for all NKCA members to call for a 'General' Election' of officers and 'BOD' members. Giving credit where credit is due for current members, it is now time to move on.I am not placing blame or 'throwing shade' at anybody for past performance. The past is over and done with but the future of the NKCA hangs in the balance. Fellow members, if you value this organization, please make yourself heard, as I am doing and start the 'wheels in motion' for a new president and 'BOD'. This can be accomplished by sending a letter to the NKCA or message on its Facebook page. Full disclosure; I am not a candidate for any NKCA office or position. I am, however, an NKCA Life Member who deeply regrets not speaking out during the 'Cargill' administration when there was still a chance to save the Chattanooga museum for posterity. NKCA members, elect a president and 'BOD' that will return the NKCA to a financially sound, respected and visible organization that its members can be proud of.

Thank you

I forwarded this to Lisa.  I was not aware the 2014's have not been delivered.  I hope we get some answers for you

Yep, I agree.  I ordered my knife in Feb 2014, so it's been 14 months waiting now.  I was told in Jan 2015 that they were still taking orders.   ? ? ?   (or waiting/hoping for more orders).   I agree about a simplified knife also.  There is nothing wrong with the Prater knives, they look very nice.  But it's been every knife made since 2010 (both club and youth).  I would like something different for a change, like just plain stag or jigged bone.  I'm sure it would help the price out as well for members.

Carl, I would like to know the, myself, I paid for my knife in August of 2014 to beat the deadline but found out later the deadline was moved twice which put off the order. Lisa does a great job with the club and we are very fortunate to have her. I think Prater is dragging his feet on a order this small. I also think the NKCA should concentrate on a yearly knife that is less expensive and more available.

Comment by Carl Bradshaw on May 2, 2015 at 12:24

Does anyone know when the 2014 NKCA knives will be sent out?  And also if they are going to offer 2015 knives, or is the knife program over with?  I haven't had any luck contacting the NKCA to ask them.  I'm excited to get my knife, and to order the next year knife if possible.

Comment by Carl Bradshaw on April 28, 2015 at 22:11

Yeah, the first one offered, 1989 Buck, was particularly eyecatching to me.

Comment by Vance Parker on April 28, 2015 at 15:55

Although there was not a great deal of interest in fixed blade knives. The few they offered were really nice.
