  • If you want your table space next to someone else, let us know immediately.
  • There is a $75 charge for electricity.  If needed, let us know with your registration.

Growing up in Texas I’ve been an avid collector of handmade knives for most of my life.  Early on I’d recognized the creativity and ingenuity that goes into making custom knives and I’ve always admired both the art and function that they represent.   Retiring from the oil and gas industry I decided to make knives of my own design and consequently the pleasure of meeting collectors nationally and internationally.

My shop for making handmade custom knives is in Dallas, Texas. I’ve been very fortunate to build a terrific clientele in the short number of years I’ve been in this profession.  My theory is really quite simple; make it unique and artistic, yet at the same time it needs to be functional and well balanced. Using only the finest steels and handle materials, I never compromise on quality. All knives are made with tapered tang’s.

Thanks to my many friends within the industry that have helped mentor me with their support and patient guidance. I’ve been fortunate and thankful to gain national recognition for my work but it only motivates me towards that next out-of-the-ballpark knife.

Every piece that I produce comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Seeing joy in the face of a client is my greatest accomplishment.
