I am writing this post due to an unfortunate set of circumstances. While I have not met Ross Oar personally, I do know of him and had recently seen his excellent work at the Erie Co. fair. Universal admiration for Ross and his work is evident when talking with the caricature carving community. Ross has recently suffered the loss of his wife Barbara . Please keep Ross in your thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time.
Ross has recently decided to sell his business (West Falls Products) which include the OarCarver pocket knives we are familiar with, to the very capable Bob Stadtlander. The link to Bob's website follows.
