I'm a hobbyist bladesmith and maker of cool things! Every project has something new in it so that I can keep learning new techniques. This hobby has become a passion and I'd love for you to follow along!
I recently attained the ranking of Journeyman Smith in the American Bladesmith Society, which defines a level of quality that the bladesmith must meet. I am thrilled to have attained this and now I'm working towards the Master level.
I got into this craft from watching Forged in Fire with my son and thought it would be a cool thing to do together. I bought a stick welder and taught myself how to weld, built a forge and then went on to building lots of tools you see in my shop. I even built a power hammer but it was WAY to loud and sold it and used the proceeds to build the hydraulic press I currently have.
I'm actually Canadian, so if you hear an accent in my videos, that's why. I moved to California in 2001 but my heart is still Canadian. 🇨🇦
PS - The shark logo was used because I'm also a PADI scuba diving instructor. I've also done cage diving with great white sharks and have been in the water with many other sharks!
You'll see Molly in some of my videos. She's very knowledgeable on all things knife making. Plus she is an expert at eating dog bones and sleeping!
I love talking with customers, so feel free to drop me a line if you have a question!
NOTE: Sorry but I don’t do custom orders, particularly not for repeats of knives I’ve already done. I make knives primarily as content for YouTube and since this is just a hobby and I have a regular day job, I don’t have the time to also do custom orders in addition to creating new content for YouTube each week. If it's something unique that I haven't done, I may consider it.
