  1. Greetings visitor,
    I have been away for awhile but I am back. My current full time job plus the fact that I am a new father does not allow me much shop time so I am no longer offering custom blades of any kind. This may change in the future but for now, I am only offering certain restoration services such as tsukamaki and hybrid polish. Polishing only on modern blades, I will not touch a valuable antique.

Sword Collection:
I do not have a collection other than bench projects. Hopefully one day I will complete one and get to keep it.
born in Illinois in 1974. went to school and grew up in Granite City. Traveled the country in my mid 20's and came back home at age 28. I built a rickety old forge and started making junk knives and swords from whatever steel I could find and made some very ugly hilts and scabbards. I made my first good blade in 2006.
