Before I tell you a little about myself, let me thank you for taking the time
and interest to stop and look at my work. Unlike most knife makers I did not
want to make knives at a young age, to be truthful I did not even know there
was such a thing as a handmade knife until 1993. That is when I saw a
Damascus folder, then a couple of weeks later I saw my first mosaic
damascus. That turned my world upside down and I have not been the same
since. And by the way I bought both those knives. I collected until 1996, when
I decided Knife making would be a good hobby, dreaming of some day
possibly being able to get out of the sheetrock trade and into making mosaic
damascus gentlemans folders. Well I was very fortunate, and in 2000 for one
of my wife's birthday presents I decided to try to become a full time
knifemaker, boy was she excited. I guess luck has been on my side because I
have not had to dig those old drywall tools back out.
I forge all of my own damascus. I really enjoy theme knives, forging an image
of something and using handle material from what ever the image happens to
be and for an added touch, setting a piece of the same material in the
thumbstud. I use nothing but the best of materials. My knives are known for
being very slim, light weight with very smooth actions and first class fit and
finish. All liners are fully fileworked anodized titanium.
I would also like to thank all of the knifemakers who helped me along the way
and a "special thanks" to all the people who have purchased my knives, for
without them none of this would have been possible.
If there is anything I can do to be of any help or any questions you may have
please get in touch.
