I've been collecting knives for about 45 years. First the kind you'd find in the local drug store/soda fountain/candy store, on a cardboard plackard. When the Internet happened, so did my tastes, buying power, and the knife industry. For about the last 15 years I've been customizing other people's knives along with my own. When I lived NJ, I had a nice little workshop set up. When I moved to FL I had to leave it all behind. My drill press weighed 135 lbs alone. Over the last few years I've been buying new equipment, as I could afford it. Now I'm ready to take it to the next level and start building my own knives. As far as knives go, I have very eclective tastes. So, you may see anything coming out of my shop. I hope I can eventually surprize and entice you with my work. I really like to use exotic woods and exotic animal hides in my pieces.
