post #241 of 347


allow me a little melancholy.

it's almost seventeen years that our paths crossed and it's almost a pair of shoes for every year i had the pleasure to meet this great man.

it was a misty day and two determined guys in a pea green mini cooper were on their way to a small town on the countryside of hungary. the begin of a special relationship.

now the workshop is emtpy and the hammer lies on the bench...

thank you for all the years and the joy your shoes brought to me.

To go like that doing what you love and doing it well all your life through war and peace is a real achievement ....RIP Mr Kiss - Hungarian gentleman.

My sincere condolences on the passing of your friend.

The Japanese have a concept, the cultural treasure. Individuals who are craftsmen of an accomplishment such that they are honored for their skills, and the contribution to the civilization these skills contribute. From all I have read, this man was one of these rare, and increasingly rarer, individuals. We should all mourn his passing, and celebrate his craft.

Requiescat in pace
