Waaaay down on the border, as far south as you can get and still be in Texas.

I make all kinds of folders, locking liner, slipjoints, flippers, and fixed blade knives. Pocket knives to weapons. I prefer to use air hardening steels. Visitors are always welcome to my shop, just call first. I love to teach and help other makers. No charge unless you take lessons from me.

I've taught knifemaking in my shop for years, but my health is limiting the time I can work any given day.I charge an hourly rate for teaching in my shop.

New makers should start with a fixed blade knife or have previous experience before taking lessons with me on making folding knives.During my classes the student will start with raw materials and leave with a finished knife, even a sheath if necessary. Heat treating your knife is included.

Got a question about any part of knifemaking with the exception of forging? Give me a call or send me an email. I'll be happy to help anyone any way I can.
