Steve began making knives as a hobby in 1988. In 1990, he enrolled in a basic forging class at the American Bladesmith Society School in Washington, Arkansas.
Steve progressed quickly to Master Smith level. In 2002, he decided to add engraving to his skill set. He started with a GRS Basic Metal Engraving course. Shortly after, he began to engrave his own knives. Believing in continuing his own education, he enrolled in advanced GRS courses. Steve’s mastery of knifemaking, combined with advanced engraving skills, provides a strong foundation for his role as a GRS instructor.
