I've always enjoyed making things. In August of 2018, after years of watching Forged in Fire, I decided to try my hand at making knives. I started with a stock removal knife using an old file from my grandpa's shop. That quickly progressed to taking blacksmithing classes from Kilroy's Workshop in Colorado Springs, (if you are in the region check them out, they have a lot to offer), and learning how to forge a blade to shape. Bladesmithing quickly became a passion. Today I continue that journey.
