ABS Journeyman Bladesmith
At the 2023 Bladeshow in Atlanta, GA I presented a set of five of the most pristine knives I have ever made to a panel of seven Mastersmith judges and was deemed worthy of the title "Journeyman Bladesmith" by the American Bladesmith Society. It is one of the most significant accomplishments of not only my bladesmithing career but my life. I can only hope to supersede it by one day gaining the title of Master Bladesmith. Until then, you'll find me here creating art and building my skillset. I'm so excited to see what comes!
A special thank you to: Jon and Julia Simisky, Jason and Shelly Knight, Steve and Lora Schwarzer, David and Andrea Lisch, and many many more for helping me achieve this goal.
