About Me
My Husband Donnie and I live in Hiawassee GA. I was Blessed to have found iKC and became the owner in October of 2012. I believe all knife collectors are created equal, no matter what type they collect. iKC brings a different direction to knife collecting in my opinion, you may not personally like something or have an issue with a particular company. But respect is a substantial aspect of what we are about. I have a strong faith and believe everyone is entitled to theirs.
History, fishing, Diving, knife collecting and about a billion other things LOL. My main interest these days is iKC and bringing the future generations into knife collecting.
Other Hobbies
there are other hobbies? OK, I found one! Watching my husband learn to build knives

    Thanks for the very nice welcome. I am actually looking for information on Samuel Bell, who is a direct ancestor of mine. Mark sounded like he has lots of info. I have a few pieces of silver made by his son in San Antonio (my great-grandfather), but it was my mom who sold a lot of letters and silver in the 1990s, some thing that breaks my heart.

    I hesitate to open anything that cannot be discussed in public. Do you know what this is about, per chance?

    Joseph Mclaughlin said… Good Day, How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( josephmclaughlin500@gmail.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day Thanks God bless.

  • David Sapp aka/Sappy

    Jan, I would like to Thank You once again for the information that you provided yesterday on the live chat 9pm to 10pm. It was very helpful.  Guess I can just consider myself quite fortunate to have snagged that GEC 722111 iKC.  It's like new immaculate condition.  Even has the round shield iKC.  I'm sure that you and others have an idea what the current value would be.  I am curious, though I will be a greedy collector and call it a Keeper. Almost sounds like a once in a lifetime snag

  • Ron Cooper

    Thanks, Jan! For a kid who didn't think he'd make it to his 20th birthday, turning 75 seems surreal. I'm gonna keep my foot on the gas and see how much farther I can go! My best to you and Donnie! Onward and upward!
