From the age of nine I made homemade knives until I was about twenty four when I began to make handmade knives, crude but no longer homemade. A few years later, I had met and learned from makers like R.W. Loveless and R. L. Dozier. I made knives until the mid 1970s but today seldom make a knife a year. However I do have very talented makers in the United States and Japan who make knives that I am proud to put my name on. I design pocket knives, one hand knives, lockbacks, and fixed blade knives and have them made to our standards.
