As far back as I can remember Iíve worked with my hands
creating different forms of art; drawing, sculpting, tattooing,
jewelry making, carving and others.
As a 28-year aerospace prototype fabricator welder, I have
enjoyed creating things with metal from scratch.
At the Las Vegas Antique Arms & Shot Show my work was
displayed for Colt Gun Company. Iíve been featured on the
cover of Knives 2004, in Knife World and Guns Magazine.
I specialize in art knives of all types. My favorite knives are
Sub-Hilt Fighters. Common blade steels are 1095, 01, carbon
Damascus, ATS34, and others. The preferred handle materials
are ivory, exotic woods, pearl or other natural materials.
I embellish my work with file work, scrimshaw, engraving, stone
settings and hand-tooled sheaths using hand-made chisels and
All my work is sole authorship. My prices range from $350 and up.
