I have collected knives all my life and have always had a passion for blades. I started making knives ten years ago and my 43 years of martial arts experience has greatly influenced my designs. I learned my knifemaking from RW Wilson and Mickey Yurco. In martial arts everything is both practical and functional . I have taken this philosophy and applied it to my knifemaking. My patterns are simple and straight forward. They are a good working knife for a hard working person.
