I make knives for the kitchen. Knives of exceptional performance, that are a pleasure to use and a delight to look at. While adhering to the highest levels of craftsmanship and design, my knives are made to be used; an extension of your hand and an integral component of your kitchen.

Beginning with sheets of steel and bits of wood, I design and create knives utilizing time-honored and time-tested materials and techniques while gladly accepting the assist of more modern processes and materials. Working with beautiful woods (all sustainably harvested), minimal bits of plastic for color accent and a variety of other metals for pins and other details, I engage in a mix and match design process, always looking for woods that complement each other and match the character of the blade.
