I became interested in knives at an early age. I can still remember the
first combination knife-axe set that I received on my 10th birthday. I
unwrapped the gift and was at awe seeing the gleaming, stainless steel
blades snuggled in their tight fitting leather sheath. I was the proud
owner of a nice knife set and assumed the responsibility that went along
with my being trusted to have such a treasure on my hip. Over the years
of being a sportsman and having used my knives in the field, I have
learned what it takes to make a serviceable knife
I made my first knife in 1980. I learned the hard way by having to
"re-invent the wheel" as one might say. The feeling of personal
satisfaction stirred my interest and I have been making knives since.
During my early years as a maker I employed the stock removal method
utilizing 440C, 154CM, and D2 Steels. Today, I forge 5160, 1084, 52100,
L6 and 15N20 steels. I make Hunters, Fighters, Bowies, Camp Knives, Bird
and Trout knives. I offer flat or hollow ground blades, custom file work
and custom sheaths. I prefer to use natural handle material such
as Curly Maple, Exotic Burls, Giraffe Bone, Desert Ironwood, Sambar
Stag, Ivory etc. My knives start at $150.00 and up depending on what my
customers want. I am an active member of the American Bladesmith
Society, Arkansas Knife Makers Association and the Oklahoma Knife Group
Association. Please allow a four month turn around on custom orders.
Thanks for looking.
