"I have been making knives since 1988 and serve on the board of directors of the Texas Knifemakers and Collectors Association. I specialize in multi-blade folders. I prefer to do only slip joints, however I do make some locking folders by request. My first love is reproducing some of the older patterns made by the early knife companies, but I do make more "modern" looking knives as well." Bill has always been willing to share his knowledge of knifemaking with others, in person at his shop, or at many other venues. He has taught many other makers such as; Rusty Preston, Luke Swenson, Tom Ploppert, Phil Jacob, Bubba Couch, Toby Hill, and Enrique Pena. Bill was inducted into The Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame in 2022.
