He was a Giant in our field...Are there any knifemakers who have not been influenced by his work?

Sorry to hear it, we have a bunch of great smiths getting long in the tooth. Making knives is such a small group of people everyone that passes is missed.

Rest in peace Bob..You taught me alot.


I do hope his sweet wife and Jim Merrit work out a deal to keep things going...

In 1988 As far as i know i was the only Bladesmith to study under Bob + Jim ,when i lived in San Diego..

I cherish all the pictures i took of his shop when i lived in a trailer he had next to the shop.

And all the shareing he did with us of calif knifemakers group
