I finally got to meet Jeff at the blade show in Atlanta. Jeff shared a table with Lynn Olson, from myknifedealer.com I can honestly say that the two of them could not have been nicer. I hung out with both of them most of the time I was there. They treated me like I knew them for a long time. Invited me to dinner and breakfast. I was really amazed that Jeff was so down to earth. Here is probably one of the best knife makers in the world and he was just like one of the boys. I had a million questions for him and he answered them all. I really can not say enough good things about either one of them. If you ever wanted a Harkins I can honestly say do not hesitate. You could not find a better knife maker. He will make sure you are 100% satisfied with your knife. So after meeting him my collection grows bigger. My kids don't need to go to college anyway. Thanks Jeff.
