I have been a full-time knifemaker since 1997 though I made my first knife over 40 years ago while an apprentise blacksmith. I currently maintain a knife shop in Branson, Mo. located at The Shepherd of the Hills Farm. Normally I am open there Mon thru Sat from late April until Christmas where you can watch me build one of a kind customs daily. I continue to build knives year around at my home shop.
I am no longer accepting custom orders but should you desire it, I will be glad to send you pictures of anything that I currently have in stock. I maintain a forging shop at my home (also in Branson) where I build my own damascus primarily from 1084 & 15N20 steels. The bulk of what I am building currently are damascus bowies, hunters and fighters but continue to make occasional knives from carbon steel (non-damascus) as well.
I am a member of the ABS, AKA, CKCA & KGA. The shows that I typically attend are The Arkansas Knifemaker's Show, the Oklahoma Knifemaker's Show as well as the Branson Hammer-in & Knife Show which I host in Branson each year on the last weekend of September.
