I am very saddened to report that Frank Centofante, a wonderful man, friend and knifemaker, passed away last night. He was always, with his sweet wife, Sue, a highlight of any show that we attended and I will miss him greatly. The knife industry has a very large empty space in it now, especially for me and my family. We all love him and Sue and Tony send our prayers out for them at this difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear about Frank. I have read his part of the folding knife book about 10 times. I wish I would have met him in person.
Prayers go out to his family and friends.

Frank was a super nice person. He will be greatly missed.
The knifemakers guild had flourished in the late 80's and early 90's due to all the work he invested.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of such a great man. He gave not just folder makers great knowledge, but all knife makers Knowledge. I've allways heard how nice he was from so many makers at different show along the way. Even though I had only met him once was really easy to talk to. He was one of the few. My prayers will be with his family.
