Charlie gets great pleasure from crafting custom handmade knives. Having been a carpenter for over 40 years, working in various aspects of the trade, he has acquired a great love and appreciation for tools. In the course of his work he would sometimes have to make a tool for a specific purpose, and his passion for knife making has developed from this. Charlie loves a tool that does the job, and a knife, as a basic tool, is something that most people use daily. To have your own handmade knife is something special.
