Knife Smiths

Hey everyone! This may be a random stab in the dark, but... 


Have any of you smiths or collectors who've been in the knife world for a few decades ever heard of a knife smith from Indiana named James Poag? He's my first cousin and evidently was quite a renowned knife smith. He's retired now. I've seen pictures of some of his knives (and held a couple) and they're gorgeous! I'll try to scrounge up a few pics and post them. There isn't a lot on the internet about him other than one of his knives.
