  1. ...and no photos of it folded.

  2. ...and no photos of it folded. When you publish a blog 365 days a year for six years occassionaly you miss something. Comments like Anonymous made give us pause to consider shuting the site down. If Anonymous was attempting to be cleaver the humor was lost on us. It was taken as a dig. This blog is for you the makers and for the collectors who so appreciate the work both old and new. The work that goes into it is a labor of love. We do not receive any monitary support nor are we a part of any organization. We welcome your comments and would love to hear from our readers. A little positive feedback
    would go a long on keeping us focused on the task at hand.

  3. Instead of complaining do a little research like to Tuesday, September 27, 2011 on this blog and you will see it folded, Twice!

  4. Art and Jan,

    I agree completely with your feelings. Few people know the work and effort that go into keeping up a very nice blog, each and every day. I think that I can speak for many when I say that this blog is one of the best parts of my day. Often, I don't look until evening when work is done so I have something to look forward to. Your work and efforts are appreciated by so very many. Thank you both for all that you do for our community.

  5. "THE BLOG" as I call it. is the way I put on my "positive face" to face the day. I am a disabled veteran and need "the charge" I get from looking at it first thing in my morning. I appreciate Jan and Arts efforts. They are an important part of my life, should the blog cease to exist, there would be a hole in my world. Bless you for you do more good than you know.

  6. I find it bizarre that somebody would look at this entry about a beautiful handmade knife, likely made by the artist mostly for its own sake, and have a snarky complaint about a lack of photos. Personally I'm grateful that someone even had the urge and ability to masterfully recreate a centuries old style of knife, and that someone else is willing to show any pictures of it to everyone, everywhere, along with thousands of other things on a daily basis, for free.
    Without the time to travel and study first hand, this blog has been without a doubt the single biggest influence on my own creativity. Like many I look at it every morning almost religiously and sometimes search through its archives until my eyes hurt. Keep it up as long as you are able please.
    Thank you
