Folks it saddens us to say that we have received word of the passing of Robert Smith, better known to his friends here as CooncatBob.
We have no independent confirmation of the news and do not know the circumstances.
We certainly do not want to spread any false rumors, or host a location where unconfirmed tales can start or spread.
All the information we have is from his Facebook page, duplicated below.
Bob was the ultimate craftsman, and anyone who had the opportunity to see his work first hand had no doubt that what they beheld was a work of art, though it was as functional as it was beautiful.
Bob had many friends here at Badger & Blade, and our condolences are with his family in this difficult period.
