My Story





I began forging knives in 2010 as a hobby. Shortly after I had an accident with an axe while on a camping trip. 5 tendons and half of the main nerve in my left wrist were severed and it was a long recovery. Once I was better I quit my job and rented a very small shop, about 10 ft x 8 ft. I sold most of my knives on as a vendor.

Throughout the years I have worked very hard at improving my abilities, putting in 10+ hour days.

Over the past year I began to work with Greg Cimms on and off, helping out when I could. Working with Greg has shown me many small techniques that help greatly in what I do.

There is a lot more to the story than this, but a brief summary will suffice for now.

I look forward to continuing the journey…
