Former Randall employee Calvin "Will" Pass

I have been looking into the history of former employee Will Pass, and cannot seem to find out a great deal of information on the man.

It appears that he was hired on at the beginning of the Korean War, around the same time that Bo built the new shop facility, and was a Craftsman at the shop between 1950-55 before venturing out on his own knife making career, as so many former employees did.

Can anyone contribute more information on this subject?

Here's a Pass knife that I scratched way back in 1981. I didn't know Pass but he made a nice knife. If I recall, he took his own life in the mid-1980's.

Beautiful knife Rick. Was this knife done for Will or a customer?

I am under the same impression about his premature death. I understand that he was always full of self doubt, at least with his knife making skills, which obviously was not the case!
