I started making knives in 1994, a co-worker making fillet knives from power hacksaw blades gave me one to try. I showed the blade to a friend who gave me some Cocobolo for the handle and introduced me to a local knifemaker named John Gianini who encouraged me and pointed me in the right direction. I sold my 1st knife at a gun show in December 1994. A year or two later I started attending hammer-ins at Howard Clark's shop each spring, and I started learning about folder making from R.B. Johnson and Al Dipold.I've been making knives part-time, primarily in the winter and closing my shop in the summer to enjoy some of my other hobbies until August 2005 when I was laid off from my job as an aircraft mechanic at Northwest Airlines. I'm now full-time and doing as many shows as I can manage.
