Oh no! I'm terribly sorry to hear this.
Hopefully heaven is big enough for that gigantic SAK collection!

While I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Karl IRL, I remember ColoSwiss from various forums going back to SOSAK days, and was always impressed with his knowledge, patience, meticulousness, warmth, and generosity.  RIP...

The name Karl Soppeland didn't ring a bell, but now I realize his name on the forum was ColoSwiss.
What a great loss for our SAK community and most of all of course to his family. He always had a positive contribution to MTO and its members.
Strange how the loss of someone you don't know, still can be a very sad event.
Hopefully his legacy will remain available on the forum.

As long as I have any say in the matter Karl's Legacy will always be here, safe and sound.  His posts, his pictures, his info and his contributions to SAKWiki will stand as long as MTO exists.

You have my word on that.

I just want to say that I am grateful for Karl's dedication and contributions to this forum and community.

Thank you Karl....you are loved and will be missed but you will forever be in our memory.

Thank you Grant for protecting his legacy.

I was just using the search function yesterday and ran across one of ColoSwiss' threads.  I cherish every word he wrote and am so thankful of the contributions he made to this forum.

Karl represented all that was great about this forum- if there was a ranking system (there isn't) I feel like he would be in the position we all strive for, and protecting his legacy is something I feel strongly about.

Just as strongly as I feel about helping, protecting and serving ALL of our members.  At Multitool.org we look after our own- always have, always will.

While the circumstances were unfavorable, I would like to openly thank everyone who has contacted me privately to share their feelings and condolences, including the many members who haven't been active in a long time.  If there is a silver lining to news like this, it's that it gives us all a reminder to reach out to those that haven't been around in a while.

With as many members as we have, I don't get to know everyone as well as I did in the early days, and that is perhaps the greatest failing of MTO.  I would like to encourage everyone to send me a note if they have any thoughts, questions, comments etc that they may not want public- you are welcome to add me on FB, Instagram, LinkedIn, Hangouts, WhatsApp- whatever medium you feel most comfortable on.  I always appreciate hearing from all of you, and my door is always open.  While I may never get to know all of you as well as I would like, I would at least like to get to know all of you a little better than I do now. 

Every last one of you matters.

And, while you are at it, make sure to tell your loved ones how important they are to you.  Maybe it's not manly (at least not in a traditional sense) But put your machismo aside for an hour a week and take the time to let at least one person in your life know that you appreciate that they are there.

I don't think I told Karl how much I appreciated him here, and now that option is lost forever.

I think he knew how appreciated he was, and I see 6.820 reasons why :hatsoff:
