I will not be attending any knife shows this year, but I will be going to the Atlanta Blade Show in 2014, so that might be a great time for a meet-n-greet. In the mean-time, I will be working 10-12 hrs a day, six days a week trying to get to all of your orders this year.
This is an older one of me cutting some rope for my Journeyman performance test.
I like it when knives work as they should and everything from my steel selection, heat-treat and handle shapes work towards that goal. My knives and swords are art and I work hard on every piece to ensure that they not only perform well, but look nice. I realize that you may well collect my knives out of love for the art and I will make every attempt to bring my art up to higher and higher levels.
