“It is a sad day at the DesRosiers homestead. We had a fire that completely destroyed our new knife shop. Haley and I are ok. We were heat treating a large part and it caught the quench oil on fire. It happened so fast there was nothing we could do to stop it. The loss of the shop and all our tools is devastating, but the worst thing is that our two dogs were asleep inside and were lost. Our hearts are heavy, but we are grateful for all the love and support from our wonderful family and friends.
We do not know how long it will take, but we are planning to rebuild.
For now I am canceling all existing orders. I can not make any promises of when we will recover and be back to work. ” – Adam & Haley DesRosiers
I have spoken with Adam and Haley a few times at past Blade Shows… they are both pillars in the knife making community, specifically in the ABS realm of the craft. Always humble, friendly and quick to offer encouragement and advice! I have had a Special knife in my collection made by Mike Quesenberry, I don’t make a very good Collector and find it unlikely that I will take this knife out in the field to use so I am offering it up for sale in an open Auction. All funds will go directly to Adam and Haley… Opening Bid is $1400, Auction will end Monday Jan 4th @ 18:00 EST
Steel: W2 (With Hamon)
