Willy, did you click on the link in Mumbleypeg's post on the first page?
The link takes you to something I posted about Bryan telling his story.
If you haven't read it, you will have an entirely different appreciation for AAPK once you know Bryan's story!


With all the new members we have had coming in lately I thought I would make this thread a sticky.
I think people should be able to read the origins of AAPK to really appreciate what it means to so many of us.

Man i have to say, my day just got a little brighter ::tu::
It really is his legacy. I am now so proud to support him and all you wonderful people.
God really does work in mysterious ways, doesn't he.
I would someday love to meet Brain and "shake his hand".
Thank you Dale and the crew for supporting him all this time.
Happy days!
God Bless!
Willy

Well I started emailing with Bryan bout Thanksgiving 2005....
I was cautious because I had never been on a public type forum before..
well did not take long too get a feel for Bryan, quite a fella he certain sure is !!!
1-2-06 I opened up my Clear Creek Knives store with Bryan's help....
had it till may 2019, 13 1/2 years...sold a lifetime of knives & met so, so, many good folk's...
Shut down after loosing my wife last year, 50 years 1 month together. She was a big part of
the store and shared all the excitement that went with it over the years, ya loose 1/2...well...
AAPK is a whole lot more than knives, it creates life long relationships where you can
share your problems with 100's of folk's and get answers & compassion without leaving your house !!!
A life changer...that is what AAPK & Bryan means to me !!!
