Like many others, I have always been fascinated with knives. In 1965, I gave up a carpentry job to work for Buck Knives in San Diego. I enjoyed my job at Buck and stayed there until 1970, at which time, Don Collum and I started “Rigid Knives” in my garage. That too was enjoyable and a challenge, however I sold my share in 1976 and started making my own hand made knives. I have been a member of the Knifemakers Guild since 1978.
My blades are of the stock removal method and heat treated by Paul Bos. I use mostly 440-C, ATS-34, and some damascus. I have no preference over the style or type of knife I make, they all fascinate me. Below is a few pictures of some knives I have made. I can be reached at 918-647-4458 and my mailing address is; 2801 Ash Street, Poteau, Ok. 74953
