I began making knives part time in
1992. In 2001, I retired
and began making knives full-time.
I'm now working part time but continue to make
knives. Using the stock removal method, I make small and medium
hunters, locking liners, lockbacks, and interframe folders.
I use ATS-34 stainless steel, stainless damascus, and Paul Bos Heat Treating for most models but will consider other steel upon request.
The blades are hollow ground and most often mirror polished.
On most locking liner types I satin finish the blades and
I especially enjoy handles made from exquisite, exhibition
hardwoods but use sambar stag (when available), mammoth ivory, African elephant
ivory, alternate ivory and other materials on request.
The bolsters and guards are made of nickel silver, mokume, or mosaic damascus.
Each hunter comes with a custom fitted leather sheath that
I make for the knife. Each interframe folder frame is made
of 416 stainless. Black-lipped mother-of-pearl is my favorite
insert material for the interframe folders that are high-polished and
supplied with a protective slip case.
With proper care, my knives will last a lifetime. Delivery
time for custom orders is currently 9-12 months. Please
write or call for further information.
