As some of you may have noticed, I recently celebrated another year on the green side of the grass. On that morning, I checked my email for any results from Ebay knife searches. One of those searches had borne fruit. A Great Eastern #65 Ben Hogan....in a Buy Now listing. Unfortunately it was priced a little higher than what I could afford. But heck, it was my birthday so why not appeal to the sellers good nature. I sent him an Email explaining that it was a special day for me and that I had just started a *BLUE* Group on iKC. I went on to tell him that if he accepted my offer that I would post pictures of the knife and tell everyone what a marvelous fellow he was.  He replied that his birthday was only 3 days away and he would be happy to accept my offer. It was a good thing we were communicating by Email as I was rendered speechless by this stroke of fortune at having met such a caring, generous, and sympathetic knife collector. The happiness that I felt in that moment, is second only to the joy I felt when I received the knife. I would like to extend a heartfelt, though late, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to gregge35 and thank him for reaffirming my belief that knife collectors are among the best people on earth.

!!! .. Oh my .. now that's pretty .. !!!


Simply .. amazing.


I've always had a soft spot for the look & feel of the "copperhead" design.


The Blue Abalone is striking.


I'm repeating myself.


!!! .. SWEET .. !!!

The seller did a nice job on this...clean blades and bolsters.  The knife is large enough to appreciate the Abalone.  Blue Beauty.

A very nice birthday present Doug!

A Beauty!  Reaching out to other knife collectors when your buying or selling can be very rewarding.  Your right, they are some of the best folks in the world
