I sold my first knife in 1981. Providing custom traditional slipjoint pocket knives, handmade one of a kind. I use the best steel and material to make the best knives I can. I've made over 1700 slip joint knives. All the knives are made from scratch, to remake a knife I just look at a photo. I do not have any patterns. I do all my grinds free hand, no jigs or arm rest. I do all my own heat treating. All the knives with liners are stamped inside with a serial number and my name is stamped into the tang. Right now I'm not using any Stag, Ivory or Pearl. There are some knives I've made that I will not make any more. I've shipped my knives all over the world. I have shipped them to Belgium, Ireland, Sweden, Thailand, Malaysia, Germany, Canada, the UK and Hong Kong China and from coast to coast here in the USA. Thanks to all my fans and collectors for their support.
