Visit this maker's website: Diotte Knives. I am 38 years old and am from Ontario, Canada. I have been making knives full time since 1997, but started to make knives at around 13. I love everything about knives and knifemaking. I especially enjoy making knives and swords with japanese styling, as well as tactical and hunting/utility knives. All of my knives are totally handmade by me, from paper drawing to finished piece, and all grinding is done freehand.
