My journey to becoming a knife maker began after a long history of perfecting various self taught crafts including jewellery, lead lighting, wood sculpture and metal fabrication.

I first discovered my talent with knives in 1983 after restoring an original Spanish flick knife that I used for many years as a lobster fisherman.  After losing this knife in 1999, I attempted to hand craft my first knife with basic tools and a belt sander  “ this later led to the obsession and now ever growing list of better machinery.
