It was two years ago in May that Mark and I agreed to begin working together.

I’m a very low key person and Mark will remember that I told him if selling HA products helped him to pay the light bill that would be cool.

Well, we’ve done a little better than that, usually HA products run about 20 percent of the CKTG best seller list.

The reasons for that are simple, My company is probably the most boring company in the USA.

Our products don’t change much but they work, and people know they can count on them.

As important, if not more so, is the fact that Mark and Sue are a dynamic pair. They’ve created a professional environment where people feel very comfortable purchasing from in terms of quality products and timely delivery.

The ‘new normal’ when offering products on the internet demands perfection on every level. Purveyors are constantly graded, a mistake can be cause a lot of hardship.

As luck would have it if you do make a mistake it’s with an order for the person most likely to hit the keyboard to tell the world you stink.

I still don’t know how they do it so well. it speaks well of them and I’m very proud to be associated with CKTG.

So happy anniversary guys, I thank you both for your camaraderie and friendship.

And special thanks to CKTG customer who purchase and use HA products.

You put food on my table and inspire me to remain relentlessly boring.

Keith

That was a fast 2 years Keith. Stropping knives has really taken hold at least with our customers. It's amazing how much of your stuff we move every month.

+1

It took me quite some time and money to learn & accept that you do not really need all those expensive stropping compounds & sprays....

For stropping, 1µ Carbon Boride and 0.5µ Chromium Oxide from HA is all that you would ever need to keep your knives at peak performance!!!

Congrats.

:)
