PROFILE: I made my first knife in 1962, when I was about 15, but I didn't get into the business until 1975. I was pretty much self-taught. At that time there wasn't much information on knifemaking available, or other knifemakers to talk to. I have been a voting member of The Knifemakers' Guild since 1983. I am on the board of directors for both The Arkansas Knifemakers Association and The Knife Group Association of Oklahoma. I am also a member of The Professional Knifemakers Association. I make a wide variety of sizes and styles from micro miniatures to full size swords, straight blades and folders. What I really enjoy making the most are all sizes of art daggers.

I use the stock removal process in making my knives and use D-2 as my steel of choice but use other steels from time to time. On my damascus knives I use damascus made by Chad Nickols, Devon Thomas, Damasteel, and Brad Vice. I like using natural handle materials because of there beauty for handles on my knives, Some hunters and tactical knives will get a handle of Micarta or G-10. Most blades get a hand rubbed finish on them tactical knives are sand blasted or powder coated to reduce the shine.

All of my knives are sole authorship made 100% by me: heat treating, engraving, sheaths, etc., except for the damascus steel I use.
