Todd grew up in mobile, AL and is southern to the bone with a love for his family and country. His hobbies include his wife and daughter, camping, fishing, hunting, and of course designing and creating knives. First and foremost Todd is a man's man, he likes anything steel, metal, manly and true. His career began 17 years ago as a machinist, fabricator, and welder. This love and understanding of all things metal is how Heeter Knifeworks was born. He started creating knives over 4 years ago by turning a simple rusty railroad spike into a shiny, beautifully designed statement knife. He counts himself lucky to be able to do what he loves by creating custom knives.
He continued to work with how to bend and mold the metals into works of art, from that, the war tag was born. He continues to bring new and innovative ideas to knife making always looking for the next way to create something unique. The war tag line is important to Todd as it represents something more than a knife... it represents his country and the men and women that fight for it. Every knife created by Todd is handled by him personally, checked for quality, and customized as ordered just as he envisioned. This is a dream come true for Todd and he believes in making the best product available, and that means made in America.
