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.

At least the thief has a good eye for top quality merchandise. We can only hope for his salvation and he can repent and bring it back.

Have your say...
