Koval Knives

I have heard from two sources close to Judy Koval that she has terminal cancer, and the business will probably close. Darrel Ralph reported that they are trying to clear out the inventory at reduced prices, so if you are in need of equipment, that would be a good place to look. You purchases would help a family that has had more than their share of troubles, too.

More on this, they actually will be giving discounts of 20% starting Monday on their available stock.

All you knife makers out there this is the time to get some good supplies at a reduced cost and help the Koval family out as they go through this trying times.

Not good news for the knife community.

Is there a list available of product that they are looking to move?

That lists there complete product lines but does not reflect what they have on hand. I was at a show a couple of weeks ago and they were definetely not carrying a full inventory.

I tried stopping off at Koval's yesterday--they have closed up shop, and remaining inventory has been sold to Jantz's.
