About Ray

While I have hunted all my life, good quality knives have not always been readily available. After searching for an exceptional hunting knife in every retail store in my area that handled sporting knives, I finally gave up and decided to try and make my own.

My Grandfather was a blacksmith and made knives out of necessity, my Father made a few knives for use around our home but my Uncle was an avid hunter and made many knives suitable for that purpose as well as utility type for use around the kitchen.

In 1965 I approached my Uncle for his assistance in building a quality hunting knife. Little did I know at the time that it would be the beginning of a lifelong hobby. For the most part I use RWL34, CPM154, CPM S30V, 154CM, ATS 34 and 440C as well as some D2 and O1 for my blade steel. My objective is to build top quality functional knives and never offer a style for sale until it has been field tested.
