I have been a knife maker since 2005. I obtained my Master Bladesmith rating in 2014. My passion lies in forged integrals and pushing the limitations of this style of knife making. I am an active member of the American Bladesmith Society.

I specializes in daggers, bowies, and hunters. I enjoy using a variety of techniques for handle embellishment and strive for perfection in every build. I believe that a good design is a balance of solid construction techniques and visual appeal.

I enjoy spending time teaching and sharing the finer points of knife making with others and I regularly teach at hammer-ins.

I pride myself on clean work, a professional humble attitude, and a drive to break boundaries in the knife world.

Professional Experience:

2005 - Began making knives

2009 - Received JS Rating – Blade Show

2014 - Received MS Rating – Blade Show
