Ankrom, W.E. (Bill)
I got started in knifemaking in 1975 when a friend opened a sporting goods business, which provided an outlet for my knives. I only made fixed blades then, but I started building folders a year later. I like knifemaking because it has turned into an artistic outlet for me. I try never to make two knives exactly alike. I prefer natural handle materials, especially pearl, fossil ivory, and presentation grade woods. Memebr of The Knifemakers' Guild.
