 "Wes-I picked up my knife this morning.  I want to tell you that I've been a customer of yours since the early nineties, when I bought some of Pat's very simple, beautifully crafted, bead blasted folders.  I have always thought your knives were superbly crafted, and have carried them ever since.  (Not collectibles sitting on a shelf.  I carry them.)  One thing I have always admired about your work and your father's is that you keep improving what you do, and you make knives that are not only beautiful, but that are also highly functional.  (Your Kaspers, of which I own two fixed blade and one folder, are a case in point - beautiful design and highly functional. I'm glad you started making the fixed blade Kaspers after Al Polkowski passed away.)  This Perfigo, however, is the pinnacle of this.  Absolutely stunning design work, but with an ease of opening, sturdiness, and sure-handed grip that is second to none.  To say I'm pleased with the knife would be huge understatement. As easy to open as my Spyderco-hole Kasper, and every bit as good a grip.


Thank you for your commitment to making the best folders (and some excellent fixed blades), anywhere."  AGM
