Fish (Greg Crowton) was one of the first kick off members over @ ITK/KF. He became the first moderator there. He is most well known for all the innovative rehandle work he did in only a couple of years time. Seems like he re-handled just about everything that was known to us back then.

Unfortunately Fish has passed away but his work still remains. If you've got a re-handled Fish knife or know of pictures of Fish's work please post it here. Let's build a gallery for him. :smile1:

I believe this was his first ever, purchased by Cujo.

This might have been #2.

I remember really digging the coffin styled handle.

I'm looking forward to this gallery! I believe he left before my time, so you guys will be more than reminiscing--I'm seeing this stuff for the first time! Like showing the real Star Wars to kids who've only seen the new ones.

Here are the two I have left: One Hiro AS 240 with koa, red palm and a copper spacer, and one Takeda 210 with koa, red palm spacer and mango ferrule.






Old pics, I'll take new ones soon (after I cleaned the rust from the Takeda :scared2: - well, not bad, actually).

Man, this thread makes me a little sad. He was before my time, but I spent about 4 hours looking through his gallery thread on KF once a while back, and it wasn't till I did some searching that I realized he had passed. He had his own flare for handles that I've never really seen anywhere else, and his work was really top notch.
