  1. Just want to let case know that I’m pulling for them.

  2. Me too, Frank. I got sick to my stomach when I ran across this news report. I hated posting it, which is why you don’t see any elaboration or additional comments from me about it.

    But you know they have survived many market downturns over the 107 years they’ve made knives and while this one is a whopper, hopefully the steps that have taken will get them through it.
