I use a mix of High carbon steels that I forge from scratch. I like to use natural materials such as locally sourced wood, antler, and ancient ivory.
I am currently in my 25th year as a knifemaker. I have been a full time maker since 2014. I appeared on Season 1 of Forged in Fire. I am a member of the American Bladesmith Society, and Kansas Custom Knifemakers Assoc.
I am inspired by the old time blacksmiths that could basically make something from almost nothing. Also the current ABS Mastersmiths who have helped me in more ways than I can count.
