"Lovely smooth lines J R - And I do like the 'natural' finish on the top part of the blade contrasting with the slick finish on the rest of the knife.... with nothing to reference the knife to it is hard to gauge the size. Could we have…"

About Me
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 opened 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 because I had no help. 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,Sheep Horn and Ivory etc. I am an active member of the American Bladesmith Society, Arkansas Knife Makers Association , Oklahoma Knife Group Association and the Custom Knife Collectors Association..
Interests
I like the outdoors and am a avid hunter and fisherman. I like photography, gardening, nature and Jesus Christ and His word
Other Hobbies
Bladesmithing, stamp collecting, artifacts, playing guitar and keyboard and singing southern gospel music
