I began making knives part time on nights and weekends in 2015. I work full time as an occupational therapist specializing in pediatrics. My shop time is a way for me to change gears a bit, relax, have a creative outlet for my free time, and do something productive with my spare time. I have been fortunate to be mentored by quite a number of renowned knife makers since entering the craft. The majority of the knives that I make are fixed blade designs related to the outdoors because of my lifelong passion for the outdoors.
Colossians 3:17 reminds us of the importance of glorifying the Lord in everything we do. With this in mind, a portion of all sales will be given to Christian organizations and efforts. My preferred non-profit organization to donate to is St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, although I have financially supported other Christian organizations as well. In addition to this, I offer a gift Bible free of charge upon request with any order.
