I recently made a couple of knives for Forrest Galante. From Animal Planet’s Extinct or Alive. Also, the guy who successfully led the expedition to find the once thought extinct Fernandina Island Galapagos Tortoise.
Anyway, the knives recently showed up on his Instagram stories.

That was nice of him to give you credit and to show the label on the knife.

That's Fantastic!

Do you have a website, or are your knives more hobby than business?

Again, thanks for sharing and congratulations!

I love forged in fire and have a deep respect for the skill. Smartly I have never tried my hand and still have all my hair and fingers!

Dude I remeber youyr episode now. A suit of armor and a boar spear! I was in Greentop years ago and talked with a guy that had hunted with a boar spear several times and was now looking to do it with a knife. Glad you won, but that looks like an insane amount of pressure!

That’s the one. It was pretty surreal. It was filmed in Brooklyn at the time and we stayed in Queens. Still my only non airport trip to NY. We could see the big buildings from our hotel, but never had time to get over there. We did eat a decent amount of pizza though.
