    A very special knife.

    This knife was made for me by a good friend while I was doing chemo and radiation for lung cancer. After admiring it for a couple of weeks I decided all that white bone needed something to commemorate its reason for being in my hands. Anyway , not being at my best, it took about 2 months to get the scrimshaw done. You might say the outcome was the result of some pretty intense motivation and the phrase on the knife says it all.

        Nice knife. The inscription reminds me of a poem I've read. Congrats on you being clear!

              I do like that knife. The story behind it only adds to it.

                Very nice work indeed, and the story behind it makes it an instant family heirloom. Congratulations on fighting cancer so hard, never give up to that terrible disease.

                Its an extremely nice primitive design which could have been on the belt of Simon Kenton or many other classic frontiersmen. It could easily pass for many originals on the pages of books like Grant Madison's Knife in Homespun America.

                Enjoy your fine blade...
