Sentz, Mark C
Mark Sentz was a Master Smith from Maryland and obtained his MS rating in 1994.
I am the last protege of William F. Moran to become a Master Smith in 1994. I make a full range of cutlery based on the principles and ideals that Bill taught to me. In recent years I have become known for my folder design and produce many for high level hunters.
I am also a voting member of the Knifemaker's Guild and a Maestro in the Italian Knifemaker's Guild as well. I produce my own Damascus, and even some water quench (2001) carbon steel. I am a winner of numerous awards, including the Moran Award and one for Straight Knife Designer of the Year in Milan, Italy, and Blade Magazine Best New Maker of the Year in 1990.
Partial List of Awards:
1990 Blade Magazine Best New Maker of the Year
2001 ABS W.F. Moran Award for knife of the year
2002 Esposizione International Del Coltello (International Exposition of Cutlery) Miglior Lima Fissa Award for Best Straight Knife Designer Milan, Italy
