About Tony

I was inspired to make knives after a deployment to Afghanistan in 2008 where I met a Soldier who carried a knife that his father made for him. I was amazed at the thought of hand crafting a tool and piece of art that would be passed down and cherished by generations. I started studying knife making, and when I got home, I built my first knife. After that first one, I was hooked. And after making hundreds of knives and learning from other bladesmiths, my skills continue to improve. I am a member of the American Bladesmith Society and always seeking to improve.

My focus is on building high quality knives that cut well and stay sharp. I like to take natural locally harvested material and incorporate it into my knives and sheathes. Some of those things include iron wood, deer and elk hide, antlers, and teeth ivory.
