The Early Days

Knives Illustrated - - Expert’s Corner -

KI: How long have you been mak­ing knives?

JH: Since child­hood, but sell­ing them since 2004.

KI: What got you started in this field?

JH: The need for a high-qual­ity knife in a spe­cific de­sign for field work. A big chop­per, chop­ping the heads off of fish for otolith (ear bone, DNA sam­pling) sam­ples. And for camp­ing chores, as we camped for weeks at a time in the Western Wash­ing­ton woods.

KI: When did you start mak­ing fold­ers?

JH: In 2009—again, the need for some­thing that met my needs and wants. Mostly for out­doors and for bet­ter tol­er­ances.
