He worked with a knife in his hand for over 15 years. When he started making knives in 2009, the goal was to use stainless and to find a heat treat “recipe” that would allow the end user to put a working edge back on their knife without special equipment.

Many of his parts are waterjet cut. What does that mean? One he has worked with a prototype and has the design where he wants it, his line drawings are converted to CAD and a water jet machine cuts out parts. Conversely, he cuts many knife parts by hand on the band saw. The vast majority of the heat treat, cryogenic treatment and tempering is done in his shop by himself. All blades are hand ground without the aid of a grinding jig by him. On a fixed blade all handle materials are laminated, cut, drilled, countersunk, shaped by him. All knives are finished by him as well. All knives are sharpened by hand at the grinder by him. As the handle scale texturing on each fixed blade is unique, a kydex sheath has to be custom made for every knife. You guessed it: by him.

This is a one-man knife shop.

He goes out of his way to support the economy by sourcing materials made here in the United States.
