Bayonetman Has Died

Gary Cunningham also know as Bayonetman has died.  He will be missed by many.  I found him very helpful and kind.  He was always willing to answer my questions.

I echo Gary's thoughts. During my edged weapons training, Gary was instmental in helping me. I was able to purchase several of his pieces over the years, and they are beautiful examples.
