Profile:
In 2011 I got hooked on forged knives and Damascus after attending an introductory course at Heavin Forge with Mastersmiths Kevin and Heather Harvey. Started forging later that year and finished my first blade late in 2011. In 2015 back at Heavin Forge I successfully completed my ABS "Introduction to Forging" course, and then spent the next year making my Guild submission knives, handing them in for evaluation at the Guild Show in August 2016. I was admitted into The Guild in September 2016.
Most of my knives are forged carbon steel, or my own Damascus.I like a blade with detail so most of my carbon blades have a hamon,or are a patterned Damascus steel.
