I.D. Maker

I bought 5 or 6 from Stu several years ago. 2 look like the one in your photo, the other 3 have a dorky looking eagle instead of a number, and Minsheng stamped on the blade along with a logo that looks like a 5 bladed propeller or star inside a circle. They were about $7.00 as I recall. Not bad qual...

Re: Please post your knives

I'm very grateful for all the kind words. You may have noticed that I haven't exactly been a constant presence here for a while, though I have continued to look in frequently, and managed to keep my mouth/index fingers shut. This recent interest from you guys has reminded me of the feedback I got fr...

Re: Please post your knives

Thanks again.

Ultimately, I think this endeavor failed because I enjoyed doing it so much that I lost track of treating it like a business.

Re: Please post your knives

Those are nice! Are they available? No, I stopped making them about 10 years ago. They were not a commercial success; people seemed to like my hand made knives better; these were done on CNC machines. The thing is, the hand made ones were a pain in the ass to build, and I couldn't do this design wi...

Re: Have a good one?

Around here it's "No problem", and "You got it", as a response to thank you. I don't object really, but it sounds kind of strange to me.

Re: So what you all going to do?

Tom did your job call you to say anything about the shut down after they said they would be partially open? I have been able to work from home for now. Time will tell how long that will last. I have unlimited PTO, but once again let's see how that goes too. I am in NY too, and I kept going in till ...

Re: So what you all going to do?

But the place was closed when I got there, and it was obvious from the snow on the parking lot nobody showed up for 1st shift either. So, the first hour of my day was spent driving through a miserable wet snowstorm for nothing. I wonder what changed in a few hours? I have a couple friends at manufa...

Re: So what you all going to do?

Friday management announced that the company I work at is closing for an indefinite period, per NY State order. I went in Saturday, as part of the shut-down crew. Then when I went in Sunday morning, to complete the shutdown, we were told that a limited work force would continue to work (We got an ex...

Re: Ali Yanik

You've done it now! Haven't you heard that expression the spooky guys use; "If I tell you I'll have to kill you"? You have to kill all of us now.

By the way, how long have you waited for your knife so far? Have you contacted the seller yet?

Good luck.

Re: Getting rid of old Moderators!!

Funny how some people try to promote themselves by attacking others. We've seen this before a few times; Teddy's Forum was ruined by a similar pattern of insults, accusations, threats, and general stupidity perpetrated by a few misfits who seemed to have little else to do. The other moderators have ...
