My name is Kyle Carey, I am 18 years old and am the youngest child of Peter Carey the knifemaker. My dad and I spend a lot of time in his knife shop especially during the summers when I'm not in school and not wakeboarding or dirt bike riding. I've always helped my dad in his shop or the garage working on cars, motorcycles, boats or his welding equipment and most recently helping him with his knives. My dad has taught all his kids to be able to work with our hands, to work hard and to take pride in our work. I help my dad in his knife shop by cutting out folder frames, making pocket clips and learning how to run his equipment. This summer my dad and I started a project knife called the "Carey-Dashi" styled after a Japanese Kiridashi, I do most of the work on the knife except grinding the bevel, something that I will soon learn and my dad performs quality control on my work. In the future we plan on working on new designs that we can work on together and to help me make a little extra spending money.I have been around knives since I was a little boy hunting and fishing with my dad and grandpa and hope to be able to contribute to my dad?s ideas for future knives."
