In 1986 I met Dick Gillenwater (neighbor to George Herron) who taught me the art of knife making. I make hunting, utility, and oyster knives. Stock removal method is used with ATS34, 440C,and CPM154 corrosion resistance steel tempered to RC 59-60 with 303 stainless screws. My knives come with a leather sheath made by my wife and business partner. These knives will last a life time with proper care and not abused. Thank you for interest in our knives.
