This knife has been ”STOLEN”,
I’m sorry to say that this knife was shop-lifted from Gallery XII in Wichita, KS some time in the past couple of weeks, most likely on Friday 8-29-2008.
I guess I should consider it a compliment that someone would be willing to commit a crime to get the knife. But, on the other hand, the only income I have for my family is the items that I build and sell.
If you have any information about the crime, or ever see this knife, please report it to me at the following email address. I will make sure you get a reward after the recovery of the knife, or conviction of the thief, or both.
