Thanks for stopping by. I started my bladesmithing journey back in 2010. It's been a rewarding experience. I attended the Introduction to Bladesmithing class at the Moran School of Bladsmithing in Old Washington, AR, taught by J.R. Cook and Mike Williams.
Lin Rhea, Jerry Fisk, and Kyle Royer have been friends and inspiration along with so many other great smiths. I earned my Journeyman Bladesmith rating with the American Bladesmith Society in 2013. I'm looking forward to testing for Mastersmith soon.
I strive to make a knife that is first a tool and second a work of art. I use knives in the field both deer hunting and duck hunting here in Arkansas. I also train in the use of the knife as a weapon. Using a knife as a tool and a weapon gives a different perspective on knife making...function first, than form. I want to make a knife that you can put on the wall or just use it like you stole it. I thank God for the ability to do what I do, and for the great people that support me as I do it.
