ABOUT THE MAKER
Fuller, W. T.
From a friend: "I got to know "Dub" years ago in Ft. Thomas Arizona. He was brought out here by Brad Watts and John Huston of Scottsdale. Brad has a hunting residence that he built in Ft. Thomas and he told me that he was so impressed with Dub's knives that he wanted get to know him. Both John and Brad had purchased several of Dub's knives at the Kansas City Knife show. When I first met Dub, he gave me a knife and so I gave him some artifacts from my Indian relic collection. I liked him the first time that I met him. I really admired his knives that he made with his left hand. He used a mechanism that he could hold things with that he activated on his right arm by moving his left shoulder. He wanted to come out and visit me and my family during deer season so he stayed with us for a week about a year after I met him. I realize that he has died sometime back. I own five of his knives. One knife he gave me, has aircraft grade aluminum handles. He wanted me to "test' it for him. I gutted and skinned out five deer with that knife before it needed sharpening. I still carry it on deer and elk hunts." Dub has since passed away.
