Donnie and Jeremy at the anvil

For a few short hours we had a wonderful visit with Jeremy and his wife. I will let him share the knife pics with you when he gets home but I can tell you, that boy can swing a hammer and has some great grinding skills

A movable feast of knives

So you have read The Heart of a Hammer In.  This is about a moveable feast of knives that happens at Trackrock.  Knives start to come out of pockets, you hear…Hey you know that knife we talked about?  I brought it with me, and “Have you seen what ***** built?  It’s on the table, let’s go look.”The variety is endless, even from a single maker!  Take Dirk Loots for example.  He sits down with me, opens his backpack…See More

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…

Jan, I'd PM you ..but.. I'm unable.

.

I went to PM you through iKC's Fb presence & discovered I've had to re-apply for Fb iKC. I've also noticed I am no longer able to PM through the iKC site. A member was able to PM me through our site ..but.. I could not respond. Then, I tried to PM you through our site to no avail. 

??????????????????????????????

Note: I've recently changed my browser & search engine .. for increased security reasons. I now use Opera as a Browser & DuckDuckGo as my search engine. However, I made that change 6+ months ago & was recently able to PM members through this site w/o any issues. I noticed the PM problems yesterday.

??????????????????? ... Any suggestions ... ????????????????????

Thanks,
