About the Maker

My interest in knives started as a child with my father’s old Case pocket knives. My dad always had a knife in his pocket and he taught me to always have one too. I found myself collecting more and more knives over the years. Then, one day, my friend Will Dutton asked me to go to the Blade Show with him. Will had just started making knives a few months earlier. The Blade Show really sparked my interest in making knives and I built my first knife in August 2006 at Will’s shop. From then on, I knew I had found something special in knife making. I like to build custom fixed blade knives that have a tactical flare to them. I make fighters, hunters and utility designs using the finest steels available in Crucible’s CPM line of knife steels. I like to use CPM 154, CPM D2, CPM S30V and CPM D2. These steels employ Crucible’s Particle Metallurgy technology for superior blade performance. My knives are made for hard use. I hollow grind my blades in a unique way to make my knives as light as possible, but maintain a strong convex cutting edge. I also taper the tang on every knife to achieve a balanced knife that seems like an extension of your hand. I use a variety of handle material, but prefer Micarta for tactical knives and knives that will see a lot of use. The reason being that Micarta is extremely durable and has a good 'grippiness' even when wet. I also make one off custom designs as requested. But, be assured that each knife is custom. Custom fit for the person using them. We don’t all have the same size hand, so why should a knife be one size fits all. I make my knives based on hand size so that it will perform as an extension on your hand and be comfortable when using even for extended periods.

I have been making hand made knives since late 1981...but my love for knives started when I was a boy. My grandfather was always giving me a pocketknife for Christmas or my birthday and I can still remember the day he gave me a knife that he made from a file when I was about eight. He was the town doctor in Dresden, Tenn. and an avid hunter and fisherman. I have been a shooter since I was very young and make it a practice to go to the range at least once a week. It was only natural that as I grew older I began to collect more and more knives, until one day I picked up a Sports Illustrated with Bob Loveless on the cover. I had been making furniture as a hobby up until that day, but that article started me in another direction, and before long I had spent over $2500 on knife making equipment, without even starting on one knife. I struggled on my own, reading books and gleaning information where I could, buying knife supplies from various people, Glen Hornby in particular. We struck up a friendship over the phone and it wasn't long until he invited me to come visit him at his Glendale, Cal. home and spend some time making knives with him. To make a long story short, we became best of friends and I began to make the trip to California for a knife show or two every year until his tragic death on Sept 1, 1995. I will always miss him, he was a great knife maker and an even better friend. Through Glen's influence I began to develop a style that I would best describe as a direct copy of Mr. Loveless, but as the years went by I slowly fell in love with the older traditional type of knife that the Randall family makes, especially the clip point and trailing point. Today, I feel that my knives have a style all their own, but I have borrowed a lot from both of these pioneers in the knife making movement. My goal is to make an exceptionally high performance tool that is on par with the best knife makers in the country. I guarantee my work. If you have a problem we will solve it. One thing I can not guarantee is natural materials...they sometimes go where they will, especially if you live in Arizona and I live in Hawaii. I will do my best, that is my guarantee.
