It all started in 2005 when I took an interest in building my own custom knife. After the first knife was built, I was bitten with the knife building bug. I rented knife videos, read books, and talked with local knife builders. In 2007 I took a trip to Australia to learn more about knife making and custom file work from a knife builder by the name of Darren Parker. Darren was instrumental in showing me the tricks for grinding blades from billet stock and hand file work, adding the extra touch to any custom knife. As time has gone by, I continue to push the edge for custom knife making by using rare materials and incorporating file work spacers on my high end custom knives.
