Introduction M&J Fong

Wanted to introduce ourselves and say "Hi!"

We were first introduced to custom cutlery in '89 and have been attending local area shows shows since then. Sometime around '96 I acquired some machinery to craft knives and in '98 I had my first table at Blade Show West. The wife took on the challenge in '99 and since then we have been making a few here and there off hours.

Looking forward to reading the happenings here and all the fixings that come with the knife industry.

Hello Michael and Junko!

Allow me to be one of the first to welcome you here to KN. This place will be a good place for you to share your vast knowledge and creative questions. I look forward to the dialogs.

(Michael and I have been members on a private email list, and have gotten to know each other quite well through the internet exchanges.)

I would *really* like to hear more input from Junko also!

Best,

Coop

It's good to see familiar names from the custom knife shows here to contribute. If any of you have not seen M or J's work stop and take a look at the next show . Impressive indeed. Welcome. Kevin Fox
