Dave is a maker and blacksmith based out of Vancouver Island BC. He works entirely with hand tools through each step as he believes traditional tools and methods are just as useful, if not more reliable, than modern technology. Each piece is handmade, every knife Dave creates is entirely unique - from the raw steel he chooses, to the marks and grooves left from the hammering and hardening process.
