Thank you for visiting my web-site, I hope you enjoy your stay.


I have been making knives since 1992 and have concentrated on

Loveless style knives since buying the book "How To Make Knives" early

in my knife making.


Over the years I have worked hard to improve the fit and finish of

the knives that I make and I hope to continue to improve.


In the years to come I hope to come up with new designs

and start making a few folding knives.


I would like to thank Steve Johnson and Mike Lovett for their

willingness to share their knife making knowledge.



I have been using CPM-154 for my main blade steel

the last couple of years. I like the way it finishes and it

makes a fine knife.


I entrust Paul Bos with the heat treatment of my knives. 

Paul heat treats my CPM-154 blades to 60-61 RC.


The standard Vestal knife will have a stainless guard or bolsters and

stainless bolts or pins.

I like to use natural handle materials for the handle scales

but if your knife is going to see hard use, I will be glad to put

Micarta or another synthetic on the knife.



The standard sheath for a Vestal knife will be made from 8-9 oz.

vegetable tanned leather and, until I can find a good leather

sewing machine, the sheath will be hand stitched.
