First and foremost I like to make things. I always have. Initially this lead me to study engineering and pursuing a career as a mechanical engineer, but I'm also not one to sit still.

Always looking for new things to try and new projects to take on, after seeing a video online of someone making a knife from a file, I decided to give it a go. After finishing my first knife something seemed to stick.

For me knife-making is the perfect combination between my compulsion to make things and my engineering background. Using my expertise in metallurgy, materials and design, I am seeking to find the perfect combination of performance and aesthetics.

I believe in the quality of the knives I make so much, that I personally etch my brand initials into each finished blade.
