About

My own work continues the patterns that Sheffield is famous for. Each knife I make is crafted to the highest standard, and can quite literally be made with my blood, sweat, and tears! Since learning my trade, I feel a responsibility to continue with the skills and crafts that made Sheffield famous.
I am a knife maker… I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
