Ever since Chuck can remember he has had a fascination with knives. His grandfather gave him his first pocketknife when he was 5, and it was that moment that did it. He started making knives by taking apart his mother’s kitchen knives. His parents thought that there was something “wrong” with him because he had fascination with sharp object. That all changed when he took them to a local knife show and showed them a whole room of people interested in knives. He seriously began making knives when he was 16. He is now 36 years old and has been making knives for 20 years. For the past 10 years he has mainly concentrated on making folding knives and automatics.
He mainly concentrates on making one-of-a-kind folding knives of his own design, but he does occasionally make a few fixed blades.
He specializes in unique filework patters, and he also does simple carving and some of his own sheath work.
For steels he mostly uses Damascus, but also uses 154CM, CPM154, D-2, 1095, W-2 and others.
Handle materials include Exotic Woods, Stag, Pearl, and various types of Ivories including Elephant, Mammoth, and Walrus.
