. "I started collecting knives when I was 10 years old and become involved in martial arts when I was 12. As an Army MP my interest in tactical and self-defense weapons was spurred on even further. Until 1996 all my purchases were production pieces, but that year I acquired my first custom knife and fell in love with the feel, size and edge holding ability. I decided then that I would learn to make knives myself. It has taken a lot of study, trial and error, and a few disappointments, and the learning process is on-going, but I am now proud of the knives I make and I am confident that they will serve you, the customer, to your utmost satisfaction. My passion is tactical type knives and most of my knives are built to be carried and used on a daily basis, so I try to incorporate a size and functionality that applies accordingly. All my knives are made without using CNC equipment or laser blanking. I do all my own blanking, sheath making, heat treating and cryo freezing. I currently use S30V, ATS-34, 154CM and D2 steels. Thank you for your interest in my knives."
