Where would this " bar in central Texas " be. That might give some clues.
well like I said the details are kind of blurry after 30 years and what I remember, were already blurry after the first 24hr's . I was 21 and working for Steward Stevenson(Detroit Diesel ) as a traveling mechanic based out of Austin , generally traveled in a 100 mile arc around Austin Area. And it was on one of these trips after we had finished a job that I met this knife maker. That is all I can remember at this point.
thanks Hetman (aka Steve)
