Sorry to hear that.
Larry was a regular on the old rec.knives. His posts were, always, interesting.

So were his knives.

Opinions? I have many. Some I don't, even, know about until I read my posts.

yeah, he was the first knifemaker i ever met--at the 1985 Peach State Cutlery Club Show in Atlanta. I walked into the show and there he was at the first table. I thought he was a pro wrestler or something. He wasn't tall but he was very large, as you no doubt know. It was the first time i met him but it was like i'd known him all my life. I will miss that big lug.

I found Larry's written prose kinda backwoods poetic.....was his conversation like that?

his online style was part of his "shtick," so to speak. He was VERY intelligent and could speak on a wide range of topics knowledgeably. now, don't get me wrong, he was indeed a quintessential good ol' boy but he was a whole lot smarter than he might have appeared from his butchered writings on the forums and such.
