Like many others I began making knives because I couldn't find the type of knife I needed. That was many years ago and since then I have come to love the trade.

Knifemaking allows me to combine my manual skills and my love of the arts to produce hard working knives that are most often described as "works of art" by my customers.

440C  stainless steel is my blade material of choice for making knives of every description from outdoor knives, kitchen knives through to high-end art pieces, some with my own scrimshaw.   Recently I have included Stellite 6K a product of Deloro Stellite Ltd. (Belleville, Ont. Canada)  in my production line because it is virtually impervious to corrosion and has superior edge holding capability.

“Stellite® is a registered trademark of Deloro Stellite Holdings Corporation.” The Stellite 6K will be used primarily  for special "one of" designs only.  Stainless Stainless Damascus by Damasteel is another product that I have added to my line.  The "Random" pattern is my favourite, it's not as busy as many damascus pieces yet gives a wonderful contrast in layers.
