The Hammer In was great as usual. Covid seemed to have slowed down attendance a little but I have to admit the pace was nice. The adults were able to make horseshoe knives and the young ones were…Continue

2020-2021 iKC knife is available for purchase

As you know we did not do a 2020 because I would not just throw any knife out there at you. So this year the etch will reflect both years and the entire package will reflect the years it represents. …Continue

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.
Interests
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

Tanto sharing for Bryan W

Posted on June 29, 2016 at 19:56 0 Comments

This is a Tanto that was given to me by the widow of my best friend that died a few years ago.  He loved the Japanese swords, and unfortunately I know little of its history.  I did have an expert look at it, who determined it was made from a cut down (or broken) WWII Japanese sword.  The polishing is not correct, the shape of the blade tip is a bit off, but the parts are all authentic and someone put a lot of time into this piece.  The collar was noted as being very…

Memorial Day, Just my take

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 14:08 2 Comments

I don't often narrow my comments to USA but this holiday is one that is very close to my heart

I am a brat!  I was raised being moved from country to country, state to state and base to base.  It was honestly a privilege.  I learned that no matter where you are in the world at 4PM every day, you stopped, placed your hand over your heart, listened to the National Anthem followed by Taps.  You learned early that God and Country were to be respected and those lost remembered.

I…

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!

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

Jan,

I'm going to slide over to the Facebook group, and hope I can muddle through that a bit easier.

If not, I'm quitting the internet.
