    Wonderful interview, Obie. I'm glad he left a written body of his knowledge but I will surely miss his wit and wisdom. Neil closed our last correspondence with,:

    "...take care of yourself. I am sure our paths (if not swords!) will cross again!"

    Perhaps so.

    I didn't get to know Neil as long as many others were fortunate to. Obie's conversation with him was so much like that of an interview. He was very happy with his life, most importantly his family even though his life was cut short. He was very proud of his work in the past which he made a lot of money but he found his love in straight razor's & that of making strops from the highest quality one could achieve with the best grade of materials he could find because he liked working with his hands. He didn't make as much money at this but was content with it even with his accomplishments in his previous years. He was a man of very much intelligence, talent, knowledge, wisdom & much more than one could think along with his wit. A day or so later after his passing, a member sent me a pm & said I didn't seem to be myself, was there anything he could do to help & I told him I was still in shock over Neil's passing & that I was going over some of his previous posts, leaving him thanks because he was looking down at us. Strangely enough, the next day I read a letter from his wife Kim on his memorial page, who mentioned that he was looking down at us. Sadly he will be missed & will never be forgotten.~RIP Neil.
