I haven't heard from Chad Los Banos for some time.
He works in a corrections facility in Hawaii and the last time I touched base with him, he was having some sort of difficulties with work.
Recently, I received a package from Boker Germany with two of his knives which he designed.
Chad played a major role in the Malaysia Knife Forums and is a solid person in terms of character.
I wish him well and hope that he would someday return to the scene.
