I ordered a KTW 'Cigar' shave around 1992, and it didn't arrive for two or three
years. It was beautiful, with Birdseye Maple handles. But by that time it
arrived I had acquired and fettled an 'actual' MF#1---with pre-drilled hang-hole
---and discovered that I didn't really need such a tool. I sold the pretty one
at the PNTC around 2015.  Should've held on to it, but what tool do I NOT regret
letting go?

How horrible it is to have so many people killed!---And what a blessing one
cares for none of them!

 Tim lived in Kernville.  Certainly Sequoia National Park neighborhood, 
but South of it.

He had a Po Box when I was in touch.  His Email address at the time 
indicated CSUB.... Cal State University at Bakersfield

His work was really incredible.... Access to him was always tough....
