My interest in knives began when I was a young boy, hunting, fishing and living off the land with my brothers in the wilds of the Great Northwest. Later in life while in the military as an NBC Recon team member my appreciation for knives deepened as I used them on a daily basis in the field environment. I have formal training as a machinist and worked in the aerospace machining industry in the Seattle area.
My goal is to produce functional and beautiful knives that are innovative and unique. I strive for perfection in form, function, fit and finish. My goal in building knives is to deliver a finished piece that will be cherished and appreciated for generations to come. I employ the stock removal method of knife making with a particular emphasis on precision machined details and inlay work. I strive to create a knife with zero tool marks, I want the knife to look as if it was born and not built. I believe the collector deserves to see effort on every surface of the knife.
