Don Lozier first entered the knife community in 1991. He became a voting member of the Knifemakers' Guild in 1996. Don makes fixed blade knives of his own design using ATS 34, CPM 154, or damascus from Jerry Rados or Mike Norris. He makes daggers, fighters, Persian fighters, hunters, and boot daggers. On double edge pieces his specialty is freehand grinding using either a 1" or 2" diameter contact wheel, resulting in a pronounced spine, radical grind radius, and greater strength at the blade tip. Don's work appears frequently in various knife magazines, knife annuals, hardback books, and on covers. In addition, he has written several articles which were published in Blade magazine and Knives Illustrated. In all, Don's work has garnered 26 awards.
