I don't know how much longer this thread will be active so I just wanted to thank all you guys for the support and encouragement. I just don't have the time to do this anymore and it really bugs me to keep people waiting and not fulfilling my commitments. So I am going to take a break for a while. Thanks again it has been great fun

I fully understand your points, Mike, but I still hope this will only be temporary, you are doing great work. I will know around May whether I will continue or stop this also, but if I continue we should hook up for 2 weeks in the summer for a handle-making camp ;)

Thats a shame Mike, but a change is as good as a rest sometimes. So I'm sure you will find enjoyment and relaxation in it again soon. :)

Hopefully you will do some handles once in a while. Just for the fun of it.

Mike, you're a very talented craftsman and your work will be missed but you're also a great guy & member so please don't be shy, you make sure you still come by to shoot the poop if nothing else.

We'll miss seeing your fantastic work. But as Dave M says, we hope you'll still stop in every now and then and say hello.

Mike is going to reinvent himself as Hmenry and only make western handles.
Photos will be taken on cinder-blocks, not bricks.

Take care Mike, I wish you all the best.
Like Dave said, you're not only talented, but an all-around good guy. This forum could use more members like you.
I wish you the best and DON'T BE A STRANGER !!!!!

And I recently sold off some of my favorite Henrys, figuring I'd just continue getting news ones!

Good luck Mike and thanks for your help.
The handles you did for me were not only among your first but were the first and only ones I have!
