" I started making knives in the Autumn of 1980 with the intention of only making one or two for Christmas gifts. Soon, I found that I couldn't stop after making one or two knives, or even ten knives - I was HOOKED on making knives!
As a child and a young adult, I was always involved in music, art, and building things. At the age of 15, I built my first car from the ground up. All throughout school I played the French Horn in everything from orchestras to Jazz bands, and then professionally for a short time. Now, creating unique, one-of-a-kind knives has been the best way for me to express my passion for art. Creating art is so important to me. Many hours of meticulous workmanship go into each and every one of my hand-made knives. I take tremendous pride in my craft and constantly strive to to expand my designs and abilities to make a knife. I love making new designs, especially if there is some challenge to making the knife - some new element I haven't yet done."
