Artisan Bio

Over the last several years I have worked fulltime in law enforcement, but have enjoyed the the 18th century living history culture, the longrifle and knife making. At 15 my parents helped me buy my first forge on the promise that I would learn the blacksmithing trade. Knifemaking became my preference, but as time allows I also enjoy forging gun parts and other 18th century accoutrements.
