I started making knives over 15 years ago. When I was a youngster, my dad gave me a couple of knives he made from files while working for the railroad. I was looking at them later and thought I'd like to try to make a knife. I realized It was something I really liked to do and have not stopped making them. For me, it is a way to express my ability to produce an object with feeling and craftsmanship. I work with high carbon steel and do my own heat treating. I also provide a custom leather sheath with each knife.
