I made my first knife in 1983 at the age of 12. In 1994 my Dad and I forged our first Damascus steel and took our knives to our first show in Springfield, MO. In June of of 2004 I received my ABS Journeyman Smith Stamp. I am now a full-time knife maker. All my knives are one of a kind and each is completed with the attention to detail that produces a fine piece of cutlery.
