Update, June 2012: I'm moving to a new shop in uptown Butte. Please bear with me as I remodel and get everything set up. I am looking to be back up and making blades by the beginning of August.
I specialize in making small wood boxes, custom blades, and aftermarket knife
modifications. I enjoy doing interesting work with nice materials. When
I'm not in the shop I'm usually out climbing something.
I get a lot of joy from seeing a box take shape on the workbench. I
never know exactly how each box will look until it's complete. I try
not to limit myself in terms of materials or techniques; anything
interesting goes. I treat my boxes more as sculptures than as
constructions. I start with a single idea or a piece of wood, and let
the design flow from there. The result is something truly unique that I
can be proud of.
started making and modifying knives as a way to use small pieces of
leftover lumber. It has since turned into a craft of its own. While I
have made a few prototype knives from scratch, most of my knife work is
on production models. I take pride in my ability to improve a knife by
making a handle that fits the user; in style and in hand. A good knife
is a tool you will enjoy using everyday. My job is to create great
blades and make your current favorites even better.
