I was born and raised in Wyoming and began my knifemaking career in 1980, starting with stock removal knives, then in 1991 I began forging and it has become my passion. I am a member of the American Bladesmith Society and I received my Journeyman stamp in 1997 and my Mastersmith stamp in 1999. From grinding to heat treating to the final buffing, I do it all in my shop. Like the Wyoming weather, the styles and designs of my knives are always changing. I believe a knife must feel good in your hand and hold an edge well. These two principles are paramount to any knife and I have incorporated these two attributes into all the knives I make. My strongest points as a knife maker include the large variety of knife styles that I make, the clean lines and the excellent fit and finish.
