ABOUT THE MAKER
Mayo, Tom
I have been making hand made knives since late 1981...but my love for knives started when I was a boy. My grandfather was always giving me a pocketknife for Christmas or my birthday and I can still remember the day he gave me a knife that he made from a file when I was about eight. He was the town doctor in Dresden, Tenn. and an avid hunter and fisherman. I have been a shooter since I was very young and make it a practice to go to the range at least once a week. It was only natural that as I grew older I began to collect more and more knives, until one day I picked up a Sports Illustrated with Bob Loveless on the cover. I had been making furniture as a hobby up until that day, but that article started me in another direction, and before long I had spent over $2500 on knife making equipment, without even starting on one knife. I struggled on my own, reading books and gleaning information where I could, buying knife supplies from various people, Glen Hornby in particular. We struck up a friendship over the phone and it wasn't long until he invited me to come visit him at his Glendale, Cal. home and spend some time making knives with him. To make a long story short, we became best of friends and I began to make the trip to California for a knife show or two every year until his tragic death on Sept 1, 1995. I will always miss him, he was a great knife maker and an even better friend. Through Glen's influence I began to develop a style that I would best describe as a direct copy of Mr. Loveless, but as the years went by I slowly fell in love with the older traditional type of knife that the Randall family makes, especially the clip point and trailing point. Today, I feel that my knives have a style all their own, but I have borrowed a lot from both of these pioneers in the knife making movement. My goal is to make an exceptionally high performance tool that is on par with the best knife makers in the country. I guarantee my work. If you have a problem we will solve it. One thing I can not guarantee is natural materials...they sometimes go where they will, especially if you live in Arizona and I live in Hawaii. I will do my best, that is my guarantee.

The knife is one of the most ancient tools of human labor, his faithful assistant and reliable friend. A knife is more than just a tool, it is an attribute of a man, a symbol of strength and a masculine principle, in the history of its development, walking side by side with man and evolving with him. Today we live in the age of high technologies, which not only provide an opportunity for a qualitatively different processing of materials, but also bring such knife requirements as reliability, convenience, practicality, quality of cutting to a new level. The Shirogorov Brothers Workshop honors the traditions and experience of leading knife manufacturers and at the same time closely monitors the development trends and needs of the knife market, offering users original original folding knives made in Russia.
