Makers, who is the knifemaker you most look up to?


Not necessarily your influence or mentor, but the knifemaker, living or dead, that you look up to, as the definition of a knifemaker, the best in your opinion.

only one?

tough one....at the moment it must be Terzuola. I have gotten into a craze about his knives....and don?t even have any yet...but one is on it?s way....soon hopefully.

I like him because the few folders of his I have handle have been the best I have ever felt. e does GREAT design work and his book is real good.

Well the only knifemakers I've ever really studied would be Loveless and Moran. Only because I had access to books with thier input in them.

Other than those the fellas on this forum have given me much in the way of help and guidance. Special thanks to: Don Cowles, Steve Johnson, and Gene Osborne.

You've helped me more than you know!

FAV MAKER


I'd have to say Fain Edwards. you used to see his stuff in the mags occasionally, and I always really loved the look of his work. It really appeals to me and is very much what I am trying to do. I actually know very little about Mr. Edwards, but several years ago when I was getting going good, I wrote him a letter and told him I really responded to his work, etc. Looking back on it I think I assumed he was a venerable old Master, but jeez he could have been 20 years old for all I know. Any way, Fain called my house while I was at work and left a message. I lost his phone number and was too embarresed to follow up. Gee whiz. Any way, Hi
Fain if your listening. I'm still forging blades.

George Herron would be hard to beat by any standards. He is a class act and a fantastic knife maker. He helped me more than he knows and we spent some very plesant times when he was still in Aken S.C. Three cheers for George

Re: FAV MAKER


Are we talking about the James Poplin who also sells knifemaking supplies? If so, he's from my home town. His brother runs one of the local gun shops, and his father was the principle of one of the schools for many many years. He's a good guy, and I always try to buy alot of my supplies from him at Southeastern Custom Knife Show in Winston Salem each year. Is he still making any knives? I've seen some of his work and it's top shelf.

Yep,that's the one J.L. Poplin.
He's not actively making knives now due to his knife making
supply business. He's been my mentor since 1994.
Thanks,Alvin
