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…
