I make knives part time, working as a behavior analyst for developmentally disabled persons as my day job. I take making knives seriously, and I try to learn a little from every experience. My knives are at the same time tools and works of art. A pretty knife that doesn’t hold an edge isn’t much of a knife. On the other hand, an ugly knife isn’t any better than what can be bought at the store for much less. I try to make every knife both functional and beautiful.
After 12 years in the Abilene area I moved to Wolfforth, TX in October of 2017. I’m married with four boys, ages 14, 13, and 18 month old twins (As of Sept 2018). My knife hobby supports a full schedule of fishing, hunting, church work, and playing with my kids.
I am a voting member of the Knifemakers’ Guild, an Apprentice in the American Bladesmith Society, and the president of the Texas Knifemakers’ Guild.
