What You'll See Here

On this page, I've included thumbnail knife photos in captioned boxes with knives of which I only have one or two photographs. Many of these are older or early works, and the photos have been scanned from print photographs, so please excuse the quality of these older photos.

I think it's important to include older works on the web site. Not only does it establish a photographic record of the works as the artist learns and progresses, it gives an idea of the foundation of knife making and establishes an idea of what a pattern might look like if it were revisited today. Thankfully, I've taken photos of a good portion of my work, and as I find, convert, clean up, and introduce some of my older works into the digital realm, I'll post them here.

Meet the first beginnings; look to the budding mischief before it has time to ripen to maturity.
