I started out with Lightfoot Knives in 1988 thinking I could make a better knife than the ones I was buying, and I’ve been a full-time knife maker ever since. I was a Machinist in my former job, and I knew how to work with steel; but it was harder to get known back in the days before the Internet, so you had to get pictures of your knives in the magazines and also run ads in those mags.
I met Jared Van Otterloo in 2014, and his energy and passion for knives and social media gave me new ideas. I loved his folder design ideas, and he had the ability to support and enhance my own designs and make them better. This coalesced into a true collaboration and my newest designs, starting with the Pit Boss and most recently the Falcon-X.
