When I see this thread, it breaks my heart for you Mike Murphy. I would be vivid, especially it were knives like your talking about. You sent him your damay 240 Kato right? My blood boils just thinking about it and anyone that says they wouldn't be concerned after someone doesn't return our calls after you send them a $1000 knife is full of it. Mike R. has always been perceived as an above board guy, but I say regardless of what up with him, he's got someones else very expensive stuff. I hope Mike R. isn't in a bad situation, but last resort, I'd take a trip to see him in person, and believe me, it wouldn't be pretty. Hope he comes through for you Mike M.
