These two great men made this knife possible Ray Kirk on left was on Forged in Fire Episode 8 and is a awesome bladesmith gave me the Sanbar Stag, and Charles Conner did the scrim both are from Oklahoma... I'm blessed to have some of the best as friends.

I remember seeing Ray on the show. He seemed like a really likable guy. I think the judges even hated to see him go.

Ray is a great guy, he is always smiling. Here he's holding one of the first knives I ever sent Charles. We have a pretty cool kind of relationship where we send each other presents unannounced. I do a lot of work in the Tulsa area, hopefully one of my trips up there I can spend some time with them on lake Tinkiller.
