After a career in manufacturing, I began this journey into bladesmithing by collecting custom knives. In 2015 with help from a few makers I decided to try my own hand at this craft. I've invested in learning from a few Mastersmiths. Murray Carter ABS MS who taught me bladesmithing with Japanese laminated steels. I've worked with James Rodebaugh ABS MS & Mike Vagnino ABS MS. In a world where things are "made to sell" vs "made to last", a handmade knife takes us back to the time of real craftsmanship & pride in producing a useful tool. I enjoy cooking & using a high quality kitchen knife.
Lunch meal is provided as well as drinking water as required.
