Bill was inducted into The Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame in 2022. I have been making knives since 1988 and serve on the board of directors of the Texas Knifemakers and Collectors Association.I specialize in multi-blade folders. I prefer to do only slip joints, however I do make some locking folders by request. My first love is reproducing some of the older patterns made by the early knife companies, but I do make more "modern" looking knives as well.
