I've been into knives since 2007 when I bought an inexpensive Gerber knife from Walmart. I've been making knives since 2009 when I watched a YouTube video of a guy (Gav knives) making a knife with a grinder from harbor freight. I thought to myself well I'm going to try that myself and the rest is history. Shortly after I started customizing knives for friends and myself and started posting on Youtube. I got pretty good at it and have people all over wanting my work. It all started as a hobby and then it became an addiction. I absolutely love making knives and customizing. I've had plenty of support and help from big knife makers, especially Dave Curtiss of Curtiss Knives. I wouldn't be where I am today without them.
