  • Any News Re Allen Goodman

    Has anybody heard any news regarding Allen Goodman? I received an email from his wife with pricing and placed an order for a knife on Jan 5th but have heard nothing to confirm the order and I followed it up with two additional emails subsequent to that but still no reply. I know he has a Facebook account but I don\'t do Facebook. Any ideas how to contact him?

      I sent two emails. No response. I would love to get a 1 and 5/8 inch upswept knife.

        I am considering a Lee Ferguson model B1 (upswept blade). Any thoughts of this over a Goodman knife. I will ask for smoothing out the bevel as suggested somewhere else. Wonder about flex and thin blade comparisons.

          You can\\\'t go wrong with Lee\\\'s knives imo. I use them all the time, including a couple with curved blades. I generally get rid of the secondary bevel then put a very slight convex micro bevel on them for strength.They don\'t flex like Allen\'s knives but I don\'t have any of the really long blades so I don\'t know about them. Most of mine are short.

            Allen is pretty busy with work, teaching classes, making knives, and sharpening tools. He will be at the Renegade Woodcarvers Rendezvous in Lebannon, TN this March. I do see him on Facebook quite a bit and you could try messaging him there. Here is his email and web page, but I\'ve always just bought mine in person.

              Thanks for the info, tried all of the above but no response. Renegade is about a 9-10 hour hike from my place so I\'ll keep trying.

                The last time I talked to him, he was having computer problems. I sent him an imessage when I read these posts.He told me that Tracy was going to check emails.

                  I tried and tried to order a upswept blade from Allen. I do not think he is making knives anymore. Any one got an upswept that that they would like to sell?

                    I saw Allen at the Charlotte show in February and he had many knives for sale. The only way I know to contact him is the e-mail listed above or catch him at a show. Sorry I can\'t be more help, but I do know he is still making knives.

                      That is good to know. Sent another email to see if I can order a 1 and 5/8 upswept. I am looking for the flex and the blade style.

                        Allen is a pretty busy guy and very hard to get a hold of. I had the same problem but just kept trying until I finally caught up with him. He told me that his wife checks and answers most of his email. The best way I found was to keep emailing and PMing him on Facebook. Keep at it...eventually you will get through.

                          Rjrsky,
                          Did you ever hear from Allen? If not you may want to look at Drakeknives.com and his model DK4. I picked up two of them and they seem to work well.

                            I have emailed and called Allen Goodman many times with no answer.
                            I want to buy a 1 5/8 inch upswept and his detail downswept both with 6 inch handle.
                            Can anyone tell me the approximate amount.
                            I will send him a check.
                            Does anyone know his address.

                            I have called this number 865-679-8865, his messages are full?

                            Thanks, judgebc

                              You might try him on Facebook. I have always bought mine from him in person, at the Renegade Woodcarvers Rendezvous in Lebannon, Tn. Steve Brown runs those seminars.
