My passion is in folding knives. I stumbled upon custom knife maker videos on you tube and instantly fell in love with the idea of making my own frame lock folder. In 2015 I bought a few pieces of machinery to make it happen. I have not stopped since. My workshop is always growing and evolving for the better.
Most of my designs start out in CAD. I have resorted to using water jet to profile many of my designs. I do not consider water jet profiling to take away from the true custom experience. I still spend hundreds of hours on CAD perfecting my designs. Water jet just gives me more time to customize my knives rather than profiling them. I still spend a great deal of time doing one off creations from scratch as well.
I like to use quality high end stainless steel and Damascus. I use many handle materials; Titanium, Zirconium, Timascus, Carbon Fiber, Mokume, Wood, and the list go on and on!
I am a full time Firefighter in Pinellas County Florida. My other hobbies include Diving, Fishing, and Off-Roading when I am not making knives. I have a beautiful family with two children.
