I started right out of high school in a machine shop in Southern California in 1980. In 1984 I made my first knife after I watched one of the "Ol' Timers" that worked in the shop turn an old file into a knife. I was hooked. So I made one and fell in love with a wonderful hit and miss hobby as it became great for Birthday and Christmas gifts for my family and friends. Then back around 2005 I made my brother a knife for a gift, but just before I sent it off to Arizona I took it by the shop to show the guys. They liked it and told me I could make and sell them here all over Michigan at the local knife/gun shows on the occasional weekends. As the saying goes, "one thing led to another" and I've been making knives full time now for about 4 years.
