Does anyone know what happened to Mikey? Last contact I had with him was via email on 25 January when he sent me wip pics of five handles he is making for me. Normally I'm patient but since he has 5 Shigefusa Kitaeji's I'm starting to get worried about getting my knives back. It's not so much the money as the fact that they are darned near irreplaceable these days.
Can someone at least confirm he's still alive and well? Or better yet...Maybe Mikey can confirm he's still with us and just on an extended vacation or something?
