I have been making knives since 1994 on a part-time basis; in the year 2000 I made the decision to become a full-time knife maker. I am a former member of the Canadian Knifemakers Guild, which I joined in 1997, as well as a former member of the Deusche Messermacher Guilde since 2010.
The joy of creating a one-of-a-kind knife that will last a lifetime is represented in each knife that I make – in its beauty, design, craftsmanship, and function.
All of the steps involved in crafting a handmade knife – from the design, cutting out the rough shape, grinding, heat treating, polishing, and fitting – are done by myself. In addition, the leather sheaths I make for each of my knives are hand stitched and treated for longevity and performance.
