    Nothing wrong with being over busy running your own business! That said, I do miss reading his wise words

    My impression has been that Maxim is a great guy with his gear and tools and know how, but some kinds of communication aren't so much his thing, 1-1 or via forums, even considering that this is an English language forum and the language gap. I imagine his business is doing well enough and he's more focused on other aspects of that and/or perhaps just his personal stuff and that's his preference. Fair enough, but yes the forum does lack some useful voices compared to the past.

    Even with vendors, I guess interest in participating here comes and goes.

    I've gotten responses to messages on his website in due course. I can understand staying off the forums too, I kinda have a love-hate relationship with spending so much time online.

    Those knives look great, I think this is going to be my next purchase. Can't go wrong with anything from Maxim. I love my Itinomonns to death.

    I highly recommend them. Some of my favorite knives.

    Sometimes the simplest explanations make the most sense. While many miss his posts, it's good to know that he's busy for the right reasons.

    OK, that is admittedly the most compact way to say that your whole life changed from the ground. I hope all is going well.

    Can't wait to see that Toyama video. The one you made of Kiyoshi Kato was what made me start buying Kato knives. Absolutely incredible, and I hope the one on Toyama will be as good.
