My name is Brian Goode. I have been making knives since 2004. What my primary goal is when I make any knife is it being a functional tool. Something that performs a specific set of tasks and to do so well and comfortably for the user. Anything outside of this simple idea I do not make. 0-1 Carbon steel is my primary steel of choice. It holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen. I enjoy the staining properties and the patina the surface shows with years of use. Each knife will age in its unique way based on the owners use of the knife.
