TOM.jpg (21060 bytes)Tom started making knives in 1964 and sold his first knife in 1966. He mostly made knives as a hobby.  In 1992 he began making knives fulltime.

He builds Lockback folders and traditional sheath knives.  Every knife that he builds is made in his shop totally by him.   He does his own heat treating.  He supplies hand-stitched leather sheaths with all Straight Knives and hand-stitched belt pouches with his Folders.

Every knife that he builds is a one-of-a-kind creation. He uses only the finest knife steel and materials available today.
