Hi and welcome to my website.  If you're here, you most likely know who I am and what I do. 

    For as long as I can remember, I have loved knives and anything that my mother found dangerous !

    I have been making knives part-time since 2003.  When I first started out, I had minimal tools to use including a 4"x36" belt sander my wife (then girlfriend) bought me for wood working.  Prior to my first belt sander, I used an angle grinder which i eventually realized, didn't work for me !!!!.

    I started heat treating knives in an open air coal forge, not really understanding what was involved in heat-treating the Air-Hardening tool steel I currently use today.  The knives came out hard, but heat-treated unevenly.  I decided more than a year later to invest in an electric kiln and I have never looked back.  I do all my heat-treating, cutting and shaping of the steel.  Every blade is sharpened to beyond what is actually necessary as a cutting tool.
