One day a friend and small business owner suggested I look in to making knives for money as an outlet for my skills as a wood worker, all I needed to do was learn the metal side of things. This was no small task! I made my first knife at age 17 and it took me weeks to finish, knives were far more challenging than I had imagined. That was 98 knives ago, at the time of this writing, and I continue to learn more and take on new challenges all the time. I love working off the ideas of my customers, developing new techniques and my own characteristic look in the knives. I'm an avid outdoorsman, spending most of my free time in our beautiful mountains or out on the water, and I still whittle out a self bow from local woods now and again, but knives have become my passion. I continue striving for perfection in my products and look forward to working with you to make the knife you are looking for.
