I began making knives when I was 15 in my Dad's woodworking shop. Dad had a 6 inch bench grinder for sharpening lathe tools and chisels, and I found it worked just fine for grinding on pieces of steel to make knives. Those first knives were crude, but I believe that is a common story. Although they may have been crude, they were a start and I was hooked. I continued making knives throughout high school. I made more and more throughout college, and my last semester I decided to go full time. It has been an adventure, but I wouldnt trade any of it for the world.
I love making knives and feel very fortunate that I am able to do so for a living. I also feel very fortunate that I found my passion so early in life. I would not be able to say that if were not for the tremendous support of my parents.
I make the best knives I can from
the best materials I can get. I will never sacrifice quality for anything.
