It's been awhile
since I've been in touch, but I
thought I'd drop you a
line because I got to put
my Warren custom knife to
the test tonight on
dressing out an antelope
in Wyoming. It's been
about a year and a half since
you made the knife
for me, and this is the first
big game animal that
I've gotten since that time,
so I was eager to try
even tell you enough about how well the
knife performed tonight. I
skinned and boned-out
the antelope in the
field, and the knife did every-
thing I asked of it
exceptionally well. The short,
stout blade was easy to
control. The Sambar stag
put in my hand, even when they
were wet. As I mentioned to
you before when you
knife for me, this knife is going to be
with me for a lifetime of
hunts. Tonight was just
the first of many times that
it will be put to work.
I'm just so pleased
with it, and I had to write and
let you know. You did a
wonderful job for me!
Thank you again so very, very much!
