As most people are aware the 10th anniversary of 9/11 comes this year. I will be hosting a special dinner at my restaurant commemorating the date. ALL of the proceeds of the event will be going to this charity.....http://www.wafs.org/summer_camp.asp
(For those unaware I spent 10 years as a professional firefighter)
In addition to the dinner there will be an auction. Sports memorabilia etc.
Most importantly the auction will include a custom knife made by Devin Thomas. It will be a 240 damascus gyuto with an ebony and brass Western handle.
The knife is currently in it's design stages. All I have to say is the damascus pattern will be unique and special. Included will be a custom saya From Marko Designs. If I know Hoss the knife will be off the charts.
I hope to make this a big deal. It's a cause close to my heart. The auction will take place live during the event and online.
The knife will be engraved commemorating 9/11 and will be one of a kind.
I will keep the forums posted on the progress.
