When people ask where I learned to do this I always say "personal experience, the internet, and YouTube". However when people ask what my inspiration was to start this, the answer is always "my grandfather". My Papa Roger was a truly remarkable man. From designing and welding the VLA in New Mexico to always knowing which breaker to switch when his wife and six daughters would trip the circut box while getting ready for Sunday mass. Always going by instinct rather than plans on paper he was truly a gifted man.


       He was always there to teach me a new skill from sharpening a knife to brazing peices of metal together. He is truly an inspiration to me and is the reason I try my hardest on every knife I make to hopefully continue on the legacy to the best of my ability.
