What a great influence in knifemaking - it's reported that he passed away this morning. I am glad I got to meet him and tour his shop, he had a great influence on how I built my shop and on my knives.

That's sad news.

Suddenly I'm not inclined to sell my original Gerber Guardian.

RIP, Bob.

Bob spent his earlier years in the nearby Wilmington Delaware area and one or two of my co-workers were actually employed with Bob and knew him well.
One fellow owned one of Bob's origional "Delaware Maid" specimens which I had the opportunity to examine , a rather crude stacked leather washer job.
The knife, one of Bob's first,(#6) though rough, is definitely priceless.
I tried to emulate Bob's designs in his slab handle offerings and my customers were well pleased.
Another "hit" with folks was the simply designed, easy to fabricate, pouch type leather sheath.
Truly a great man in the annals of custom knife making.

I got to know Bob since I met his granddaughter 15 years ago and finally marrying her 10 years ago. Bob was a very tough man on his family but a good man to his family. I always have been in awe of his knifemaking skills and the wonderful products that he produced. I had the privilege of receiving a knife from him early this year and will cherish it. I plan on passing it down to my children as well.
