“I loved the knife and the DVD.  I just got through watching the DVD Forging a Cherokee Life, that’s one of them most beautiful pieces of film I’ve ever seen it wastotally awesome, it was totally enthralling—I love it and I loved watching it and I’d like to try to get a hold of this guy and talk to him about setting up a thing and maybe coming to my house and helping me set up  a little shope there and help me make knives.” — James
