    15 years? Wow, time flies. I've learned alot on here. I found this place originally looking for advice and information on replacing an old Benchmade 970S CQC7. I didn't realize how much things had changed in the industry! I'm probably much poorer for it all, but I don't regret a dime or minute spent. Thanks for all the years of fun and friendship. I will all here the very best, and another 15 years of awesome, kick-ass steel worship!

    -Dave

    Wow, fifteen years. I'll be back soon when I feel human again. Had my appendix removed and five days at the hospital to recover. I love this place and the people here have helped me more than they'll ever know.

    I'll admit that I'm a sentimental pussy, but I just wanted to share something with you all...

    I've only been a member for 10 years, but I lurked since the early days of JD. I started getting into knives again after my father had a house fire in November 2004 and most of my knife collection was destroyed. I loved knives since I was a kid and I had collected a few dozen that I had left at my father's house in Kansas City when I moved to Phoenix to go to college in 1988. After the restoration of the house in early 2005, my dad told me what the restoration company brought back… and so I realized what they didn't bring back. That's when I started collecting knives again and my searches frequently brought me here. Why didn't I join then? Well, to be honest, I don't remember, but I think you fuckers scared the shit out of me.

    My dad loved knives, too. He had a knife collection and he got me interested when I was really young. I almost stopped thinking about knives when I moved to Arizona, but when I started collecting again after his fire, it really brought us closer. We always talked about knives and I frequently talked about things I saw on JD. He would always ask me about my latest acquisitions and many of them came from the JD Voodoo. I even gave a few of them to him for birthday and Christmas presents and they became his favorites. He had a stroke in April this year and he has dementia that is progressing rapidly. The last time I was able to talk to him was on November 12 and, as always, knives were part of the conversation. That conversation will probably be our last.

    So, over the years, as much as I love the awesome forum knives and the best reading entertainment and knife-porn on the internet, I really want to thank you all at the JD for just being you, because you helped me be closer to my dad. I'm now raising a glass of some of Kentucky's finest to the JD's next 15 years, and hoping I'm lucky enough that my two boys will join the JD some day.
