ABOUT THE MAKER
Barnes, Gary L.
Gary L. Barnes began making knives, Professionally; in 1975. "Good Grief! He's a Fossil !!! ..... or, very experienced." In Oct. 1983, Gary received his Master Bladesmith's Certification from the American Bladesmith's Society. He's won a whole wall full of "Best of Show", "Best Knife", "Book Cover Shots and Magazine Articles." He loves to develop new mechanisms and techniques. He says his mind is always showing him something new that "The Back Room" of his brain has been working on. While he takes nothing away from the fabulous Collaborative efforts he's seen, Gary has developed a wide range of skills which appear on his knives. If it's engraved, carved, etched, extruded, or coined .... Gary did it himself, in his shop. He doesn't keep track of the time it takes, it's finished when it's "Barnes". He hopes you enjoy the precision and whimsy, which are the hallmarks of Barnes Knives.
