I wasn't sure whether to post this in the general chef's forum or here, but since he was a knife nut in addition to being a chef, I guess I'll post here. I just recently learned that KC Ma recently passed away. The motorcycle he was driving collided with a semi truck. KC posted at several knife & cooking forums, and I think he occasionally posted here. While I only knew him from our online exchanges he struck me as a really great fellow with a passion for cooking and sharpening. My condolences to his friends and family. What a tragic loss of such a young and exceptional guy.
