Well, I started making knives because I really wanted to make hunting knives for my kids. Something that they would keep! That quickly evolved into making knives for friends and then clients!
I make knives that are something you want to display on your mantle and take out hunting/fishing/whatever! I think its great when someone sees or buys one of my knives and can't wait to use it. That's the kind of knives I want to make, not just museum pieces, but actual usable knives that will be part of someone's experiences!
