"Sirara" Tactical Combat Knife
"God wove a web of loveliness, of clouds and stars and birds, but made not anything at all so beautiful as words."
–Anna Hempstead Branch
As you've no doubt looked over this website, perused the pictures and read the words, you've probably come to realize that I'm a writer. What is in a person that classifies himself as a writer? It's someone who can not stop writing, can not forego writing, cannot not write.
Since I was a child, I've written. Short stories, poems, letters, descriptions: I've painted with words. It's all part of this making thing. While the knife maker creates knives with steel and wood and stone and leathers, the writer creates entire universes with only words. When my grandchildren ask me what is the most important subject to master in school, I tell them it's English. If they can't effectively communicate, all the other subjects won't matter. Please take a moment to think about that with your own family.
I've got several works in the mill. Imaginary Spaces is a novel that I wrote in the late 1990s, and is complete, but unpublished. I'm writing a novel titled The Knife Maker, and I'm working on a book on modern knives and the modern artist and craftsman. At the time I'm writing this, I'm very excited about the future, as I'm completing my website rebuild that took over two years and consumed nearly all of my writing time. The daily hours that I've spent on that will be redirected toward my nonfiction and fiction works.
I would be honored if you take a few moments and read some excerpts from my current works:
