Lin Rhea here. I'm currently a member of the Knife Group Association, The American Bladesmith association, and the Arkansas Knifemaker's Association. I'm rated as a Journeyman Bladesmith in the ABS and I am offering my knives on the website: www.rheaknives.com .
I learned the importance of a good knife early on. A few years ago I tried my hand at making a knife, but wasn't happy with the result, so with encouragement from my wife, I enrolled in the Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.
I make Bowies, Hunters, and Camp style knives, but am always looking to broaden my skills. I try to make a nice looking knife, but expect them to be used. I test each knife before it leaves my shop, but I am also willing to test them in real life hunting situations. I have gained a lot of experience in knife design by entering the different Competitions. I was fortunate enough to win the 2006 World Championship at the BLADE Show in Atlanta, Georgia.
If you have a question about me or my knives, just stop by my site or email me. I'll do my best to help. Lin
