I work very hard to construct my knives using the finest materials available. My knives are constructed using one piece of steel. I primarily use 440C, D2 and ATS-34. I do all of my carving with files and sandpaper. I don't use CC machinery when making my knives. I do all of my own heat treating as well. All of my knives are intricately carved and finished. Perfection is of the utmost importance.
