Passion for Knives.
I have been making knives since the mid 80s. Even before then I always had a passion for knives. I remeber being in the hardware store as a child studying the displays of kives by Buck, Case, and Western. When I was a young teenager, I purchased a ground blade from Bob Engnath at the House of Muzzleloading. I used the directions in his catalog to complete the piece. In high school I bought a 2x48 belt grinder and got more serious about my craft. Since then I have been a part time maker, working in stock removal on fixed blades and liner locking folders primarily.
Recently, I began forging knives and have earned a Journeyman Smith rank in the American Bladesmith Society in June of 2016
I do not take orders, but rather sell my work as pieces are completed.
